In the emotional clip, officers can be heard saying "we've got her" before asking: "What's your name, sweetheart?"
The little one replies: "My name is Cleo".
An Australian man has now been charged with abduction, after Cleo was rescued by authorities this week. It's reported that the suspect has been taken to hospital after sustaining injuries in his cell.
Detective Superintendent Rod Wilde told 6PR: "My understanding is the man in custody self-harmed.
"Obviously in modern police stations, there’s CCTV in all the cells and everything else.
"That’s what the understanding was, he was taken to hospital. When he’s declared fit to interview, that’s what we will do.”
Cleo was rescued after WA Police broke into a locked property in Carnarvon - just a seven minute drive from her family home - at around 1am, where they found Cleo in one of the rooms.
She had been missing for 18 days after vanishing from her family's tent in the Australian Outback last month. The family were staying at a campsite near Macleoad, but when they woke at 6am, Cleo had disappeared.
Investigators feared Cleo could have been abducted due to the fact the tent zip would have been too high for Cleo to open herself.
It was also reported that up to 20 known sex offenders live in the area, and a car was heard screeching near the campsite.
ABC News reported that a man at the address had been spotted by a neighbour buying nappies. "The other day - on Monday - we saw him in Woolworths buying Kimbies [nappies] and that," they said.
"But we didn't click on what he was buying them for."
After she was rescued, the youngster was reunited with her parents shortly afterwards.
