Cleo Smith's Alleged Abductor Made 'Cryptic Post' The Day She Went Missing

Cleo Smith's Alleged Abductor Made 'Cryptic Post' The Day She Went Missing

Terence Darell Kelly has been charged with abduction.

Cleo Smith's alleged abductor is believed to have made chilling Facebook statuses and interactions around the time she went missing.

Terence Darell Kelly - who has been charged with abduction after Cleo was found locked in his property earlier this week - allegedly made a Facebook post on the morning Cleo went missing.

The Daily Mail report that the status reads: "I can't accept friend requests from strangers .... I live a private life and I respect those who are on my friend list to ensure their privacy is respected too.

"Us adults have to be careful online too."

The publication also reports that Kelly was following Cleo's mum Ellie Smith on Facebook, who was regularly posting updates and appeals about her missing daughter.

In addition, on a news article posted about the four-year-old, Kelly's account reportedly reacted with a 'sad' emoji.

It's reported he also had another Facebook page where he posted about his alleged obsession with Bratz dolls. A video circulating online revealed a room filled with boxes of the toys.

Meanwhile, ABC News reported that a man at the address Cleo was found 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."

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.

This week, police in Western Australia have released a new audio clip of Cleo the moment she was rescued from a property in Carnarvon.

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".
