The father of Chloe Campbell says "we blame ourselves" after he awakes to find his daughter missing from the family home.



Chloe Campbell disappeared with her toy dog and sleeping bag.

A three-year-old girl has been snatched in an Australian town, prompting a major police hunt.

Chloe Campbell went missing at around 7am local time on Thursday morning from a home in Childers, Queensland.

She is described as white, with light brown shoulder-length hair and around 3ft 3in (1m) tall.

Police, who have issued a child abduction alert, say she was wearing orange shorts and a yellow shirt with butterflies and bees on the front.

Her father, Garth Campbell, told Australian Associated Press that Chloe, who normally sleeps in the living room, had vanished along with her sleeping bag and stuffed, blue toy dog.

He said a window was open and that there was an adult-sized footprint on the family's car outside.

"I don't think there's any possible way she's wandered off," he said.

"She wouldn't leave the yard by herself."

He added that they normally closed the windows at night, but that one of them must have failed to lock properly.

"That’s why we are blaming ourselves," he said.

"I think it's got to be someone who knows me, in how they got in, where she sleeps. They knew she was sleeping in front of the TV."

Bundaberg Police Inspector Kev Guteridge said: "Shortly after 7am Bundaberg Police were contacted by a distraught mother of a three-year-old girl to advise that her daughter was missing.

"We do hold very serious concerns for the safety of the girl as we do with every missing person reported."

This is already being labelled as a "Maddie Copycat Kidnapping" by the usual London culprits.

Strange isn't it that the sleeping bag went too?

Oh no! Please No more abductions of babies. She was sleeping in the Parlour with her sisters apparently. Wandered off?
Her family must be frantic  8(8-)) Hopefully she will be found soon.

UPDATE 6.33AM FRIDAY: The frantic search for missing three-year-old Chloe Campbell is continuing this morning, almost 24 hours after the tiny girl  was reported missing.

 Police yesterday said they had grave concerns for the safety of Chloe, amid fears she had been abducted.

The search yesterday widened to bushland, open paddocks and cane fields on the edge of Childers. 

Chloe's father, Garth Campbell, pleaded with whoever had his daughter not to harm her. He believes whoever has her is known to the family.

Chloe is described as being Caucasian in appearance, with light-brown shoulder-length hair and around 100cm tall.

She is wearing orange shorts and a yellow-coloured shirt with butterflies and bees pictured on the front.



 

UPDATE 7.51AM FRIDAY: Kevin Savage, who lives just four doors down from the Campbell family, said he was surprised his neighbourhood had been turned into a wide-scale police investigation.

"In this town it doesn't happen," Mr Savage said.

He said the Campbells seemed like a normal family and he would often see Chloe and her sisters playing in the neighbourhood - but they never ventured far from home.

He said while he hoped nothing sinister had happened, he felt that it wasn't just a simple case of a young girl who had wandered off.

"Being three years old, she's not one to wander very far," Mr Savage said.

"This is all a bit spooky, really."

 Police vowed to continue to search as long as they needed to, and appealed to the public for any information that might help them in their investigation.

Sickening isn't it  ? 

This  little girl has been missing since early this morning  ...   and the name above her picture is,   Maddie  with the obligatory  'lookalike' label added

As if who this little girl   actually  IS is merely incidental ...  a supplementary  almost...  to  the   Madeleine McCann story

What a cynically disgusting front page from that newspaper, a front page designed solely to boost the profits of the paper.

If you enlarge it, you will see that they don't even mention on that front page that the child went missing on the other side of the world and the case has probably no connection at all to the McCann case.

Another example as to why the press should be controlled more rigorously, such money-grabbing cynicism is of no journalistic value at all.

It is truly sick that this newspaper is trying to boost profits by referring to Madeleine McCann in this way and being totally disrespectul to the actual missing child.

No doubt there will be some fools who believe that the McCanns themselves are controlling the work of this paper's editor and insisting that he post such headlines and thereby improve his profits.

Oh no, not another one.  How sad

I agree, John. it does seem strange that her sleeping bag went with her.

Sounds to me like the child might have gone into another room possibly the second bedroom and curled up to sleep with sleeping bag and toy in some odd place like in a cupboard under a pile of clothes for example
Hope aussie police actually searched the house fully.
See the case in Durham North Carolina where even after police searches of the residence and after five hours of amber alert, there was a happy ending, and guess where the child was? http://www.wral.com/durham-police-missing-4-year-old-boy-fell-asleep-in-closet/12701129/

Reminds me of the Tia Sharp case Pegasus where police missed her body on three separate occasions.

UPDATE 11.08AM FRIDAY: Forensic crews have spent the morning examining the Campbell family's Ridgeway St home for clues on the disappearance of three-year-old Chloe Campbell.

SES volunteers and police officers could still be seen in the street today as the search continues to find the missing child.

The search area extended to the back of the Childers Woolworths store this morning, with crews also moving in on more bushland and paddocks. 

At the scene, SES volunteers told Isis Town & Country reporter Melinda Bradford they were determined to find little Chloe, and would not give up.

A blue soft toy and a grey blanket are also missing from the home.

UPDATE 11.56AM FRIDAY: Bundaberg Police Inspector Kevin Guteridge has pleaded with the public to give police any information they might have on the disappearance of little Chloe Campbell.

Insp Guteridge said an infra-red camera search last night failed to find any sign of the young girl.

Another air search was carried out at first light this morning. 

Seventy SES volunteers have now joined the search, with community volunteers on motorbikes and horses looking for Chloe.

Insp Guteridge told Isis Town & Country reporter Melinda Bradford that some items had been identified at the scene, but he was not privy to what they were and said they would be subjected to analysis at a later time.

Insp Guteridge reiterated how vital it was for the public to come forward with any information whatsoever, no matter how small or meaningless they might think it was.

He said police were carrying out routine investigations and were using every resource available and not ruling anything out in the search for Chloe.

In all three cases Police searched residence , found no child, even though child was in the residence.

It may be interesting to note that in two of those cases, the child was under a pile of clothes in a cupboard DURING police searches of the residence.
