Absolutely wonderful news,  after two weeks it looked very bleak,  but there she is smiling and waving, bet her parents and family are over the moon.

Well they’re not letting it lie on the cesspit re Cleo Smith.  They are now invoking the name of Shannon Matthews despite their faux outrage at comparisons between this case and Madeleine McCann’s.

Hmmm.


MADELEINE McCann top cop Jim Gamble has said missing Cleo Smith likely would have known her abductor who may be someone who was following the family ahead of their trip.

Mr Gamble - who was the senior child protection officer in the UK investigation into the Maddie case - explained the chance of the girl being taken away silently by a total stranger in the middle of the night was low.



Hmmm…

No admission that he was wrong to assume in his previous pronouncement…

Cleo Smith: Irish detective who led Madeleine McCann probe says 'hope wins out for a change' as missing Australian girl found alive

Jim Gamble also said he feels 'overwhelmed' and that Cleo’s rescue is 'simply the best news ever'

An Irish detective who led an investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann said “hope wins out for a change” as missing Australian girl Cleo Smith has been found alive after going missing more than two weeks ago.

Jim Gamble - who was the senior child protection officer in the UK investigation into missing Maddie case - also said he feels “overwhelmed” and that Cleo’s rescue is “simply the best news ever.”

The former chief executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, who served as the senior child protection officer in the UK’s first investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance, also praised the work of Australian police who rescued four-year-old Cleo - dubbed ‘Aussie Maddie’ - on Wednesday after a late-night raid at a house which followed a tip to police the previous day.

Taking to Twitter as the news of Cleo’s rescue was announced, Mr Gamble wrote: “Simply the best news ever. Fantastic work. What an amazing result under such difficult circumstances and the glare of the media.”

The Bangor man, who is one of the UK’s most experienced and outspoken experts on the safeguarding of children online, also said he is “overjoyed that there is a happy ending in this case.”

“Thank God. Sometimes things can work out. There’ll be more work to do and plenty of support needed, but this is an amazing result,”

Mr Gamble, who now runs the Belfast-based INEQE Group which continues to spearhead the battle to make the online world safer for children, said he has “felt so overwhelmed” by the news of Cleo’s rescue.

“So often in these cases you hope against all the odds. You keep believing in the possibility of a good outcome.

“Everytime it fails to materialise you lose something. This is a powerful reminder that good things can happen,” he said. “Hope wins out for a change.”

Following the rescue of Cleo, a 36-year-old local man was arrested.

Australian media reported that officials wept with relief after seeing a body camera video of a police officer scooping up the girl and hearing her say: “My name is Cleo.”

The girl was reunited with her mother Ellie Smith and stepfather Jake Gliddon soon after her rescue.

Western Australia State police commissioner Chris Dawson said the girl is “as well as you can expect”, adding: “This has been an ordeal. I won’t go into any more details, other than to say we’re so thankful she’s alive.”

Mr Dawson said “dogged, methodical police work” led to the girl being found.

Australian prime minister Scott Morrison reacted from the United Arab Emirates on his way home from the Cop26 climate summit in Scotland, thanking police for finding Cleo and supporting her family.

“It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. The fact that that nightmare has come to an end and our worst fears were not realised is just a huge relief, a moment for great joy,” Mr Morrison told reporters.

“This particular case, obviously, has captured the hearts of Australians as we felt such terrible sorrow for the family,” he added.

Cleo’s family lives in Carnarvon, a community of 5,000 people, and the girl had disappeared with her sleeping bag on the second day of a family camping trip at Blowholes Campground, 47 miles north of Carnarvon, on October 16.

A massive land and sea search was initially mounted in the sparsely populated region on the assumption that she had wandered from the tent. But more evidence began to support the theory that she had been abducted.

A vehicle was reported speeding away from the area in the early hours of the morning. A zip on a flap of the tent compartment where Cleo and her sister were sleeping was too high for the girl to have reached.

Forensic scientists examined the exterior of the family’s home to see if a predator had stalked Cleo and attempted to break in.

A distraught Ellie Smith made emotional public appeals for information on her daughter’s whereabouts that were broadcast across Australia over the past two weeks.

“Hope wins out for a change”, how that must stick in the craw of the hope-less.

There are a lot of very strange individuals about and there can be few stranger than the guy who took it upon himself to abduct Cleo and rip her from her family.

He was watching Cleo and her family.  Entirely unbeknownst to the family they were being stalked.  Innocent posting on social media became the abductor's window into their world and their activities.

The kidnapper followed Cleo's mother on social media and played with dolls
Terry K., the kidnapper of four-year-old Cleo, appeared in court for the first time. Meanwhile, footage of him with children's dolls appears on the net. His behaviour on social media is also described as abnormal.

Nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.  One wonders how many other fetishists there are out there in the world - this is certainly a new one on me or maybe not.  I know there are people with train sets or all sorts of model scenarios from wars to galaxies none of which I have ever thought the slightest bit odd.

This guy has taken his interest one step too far.  I think there is probably quite a bit to be gained as far as understanding his motivations for doing what he did.
At the moment the best that can be said for him is that he didn't physically harm Cleo but he must have caused her a lot of trauma and how she must have missed her family.

"All I'm going to say is that we've conducted a very serious investigation and there's no indication that Madeleine McCann's parents are connected to her disappearance. On the other hand, we have a lot of evidence pointing out that Christian killed her," Wolter told the "Friday at 9"....

French 17-year-old feared abducted while jogging

Police in north-western France are searching for a young jogger and have opened an inquiry into her abduction.

The 17-year-old, who has not been named, disappeared on Monday afternoon in the French district of Mayenne.

Her father raised the alarm when he found her phone and GPS watch on her running route after she failed to return home as usual.

Some 200 police officers, rescue dogs, divers and a helicopter have joined the search, covering woodland and a river.

Local prosecutor Céline Maigné told a news conference that the inquiry was initially seen as a "worrying disappearance" but was now classed as an abduction and holding someone against their will.

The teenager, described as a regular runner, left her home for the local Bellebranche forest at around 16:00 on Monday. Her father contacted police less than three hours later, after discovering items belonging to his daughter that had traces of blood.

"The current investigation has only just begun and there are many lines of inquiry," Ms Maigné said, adding that teams were searching a partly wooded area with stretches of water of about 190 hectares (470 acres).

She appealed to residents not to join the search so as not to get in the way of investigators.

She said police were interviewing an individual related to the case due to some inconsistencies in initial statements made to officers but did not suggest he was a suspect.

For some reason best known to herself, she made it up.
