Cleo Smith tells police officers her name during rescue

The suspect charged with abducting Cleo Smith swore at journalists as he appeared barefoot in court, it has been reported.

Terence Darrell Kelly told members of the media “I’m coming for you” as he was charged with multiple offences including forcibly taking a child under 16, according to ABC.

The 36-year-old was barefoot, wore a black shirt and his curly hair out at Carnarvon Magistrate’s Court in Western Australia.

He acknowledged the charges by nodding and didn’t apply for bail.

He was remanded in custody until December 6.

At one point Kelly asked the magistrate “what the f*** are the media doing here?”

Kelly then said “I’m coming for you” during the late afternoon hearing.

The young girl was found on Wednesday morning



The suspect was twice taken to hospital for self-inflicted injuries before being interviewed and charged with various offences related to the abduction, police in Western Australia state said in a statement.

Cleo had last been seen in her family’s tent in the early hours of October 16 at the remote Blowholes Shacks campsite in Macleod.

She had gone to bed for the night on an air mattress next to her sister’s cot in a tent.

When her mum woke up the next day the young girl was gone and the tent door was left open.

Her disappearance triggered an extensive search by land and air, along with roadblocks and scouring of CCTV footage.

The suspect was taken to hospital for treatment



Ms Smith was adamant that her daughter could not have left the tent by herself, instantly leading to fears that she had been abducted.

She was found safe on Wednesday when police broke into a house in Carnarvon, a town about 100 km (60 miles) south of the campsite on the far northwest coast of the state.

The house is 3km (2 miles) from her family home, media said.

The four year-old was found after an extensive search

Police released an audio recording of their entry into the house and the discovery of the girl in a room.

“We’ve got her. We’ve got her,” an officer could be heard saying.

After being asked her name a few times, the toddler answered: “My name is Cleo”.

She had been found playing with toys with the light on, police said.

A film of Cleo’s rescue by police has since gone viral

After meeting her family, state Premier Mark McGowan said Cleo was a “very bright, upbeat, sweet little girl” and looked “very well adjusted”, considering her ordeal.

Specialist child interviewers would speak with her, and authorities had instructed her parents on how to talk to her to preserve her memory, authorities said.

The hashtag #CleoSmith has been trending on Twitter since Wednesday, with a picture posted by police that showed a smiling Cleo waving from her hospital bed drawing nearly 54,000 “likes”.

Purple and pink balloons adorned the streets and many landmarks in Perth, the capital of Western Australia, were lit up in blue on Wednesday night to thank police for their efforts.
