How neighbours of ‘quiet man’ arrested after Cleo Smith was found locked in his house raised the alarm after spotting him buying NAPPIES at Woolworths
Shocked neighbours have described seeing a ‘quiet’ man buying nappies at Woolworths just two days before Cleo Smith was found alive inside a locked home.
Police teams found the four-year-old girl inside a Carnarvon home about 1am on Wednesday – 18 days after she vanished from her family’s Blowholes campsite.
A man from Carnarvon was arrested at the home and taken into custody to be questioned by detectives.
Neighbours say they awoke to frantic scenes as police cars and detectives packed into their street, piling into and out of the home where Cleo was found.

‘We stood back and waited but after that, we saw someone, on the detective’s shoulder,’ one man told 7News.
‘We thought it might be the little girl, which it was. I went closer to the detectives car and I saw her in the back of the car with the detective, he was holding her.’
More to come.
