Terence Darrell Kelly allegedly abducted Cleo Smith from her tent at a campsite

A mum and a daughter whose photos were used by a man accused of kidnapping a four-year-old girl to create a fake Facebook family have said they are horrified.

Terence Darrell Kelly, 36, allegedly abducted little Cleo Smith at a campsite where she was on holiday with her family in the early hours of October 16.

The girl’s disappearance sparked a major search operation in Australia until officers found her alive and well on Wednesday this week – 18 days after she went missing.

On Friday the state’s Justice Department said suspect Kelly was flown to a maximum-security prison in Perth.

Since his arrest for the alleged kidnapping, a number of fake Facebook accounts believed to be used by the Bratz doll collector to interact with his main accounts – Bratz DeLuca and Terence TezKelz – have emerged.

With one of the accounts, he pretended to be a teenage girl and a mum, it has been reported.

A woman from Sydney said she was horrified to discover Kelly used her pictures and those of her daughter to create his fake virtual family.

She said she has no connection with Kelly, as she explained: “Of the millions and millions of people, what I want to ask is, why me? What have I done or what has my daughter done? Who is following us for this to happen?”

The mum added: “My daughter hasn’t done anything wrong, and I haven’t done anything wrong, but now it looks like we are friends with this dude.”

Yesterday, it emerged that Kelly reportedly posted a cryptic message the day Cleo was abducted and that his Facebook profile was following the child’s mum.

It is alleged Kelly made a strange post on Facebook at 5am on October 16, saying: “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 post stated the person wouldn’t be “mates” with anyone just because they have a friend or a family member in common.

Cleo went missing from her family’s tent at the remote Blowholes Shacks campsite in Macleod in Western Australia.

Police mounted an extensive search by land and air, set up roadblocks and scoured CCTV footage.

Officers found her after breaking into a locked house in Carnarvon, a town about 100 km south of the campsite on the far northwest coast of the state.

Footage released by Western Australia Police shows the moment the little girl was found as an officer brought her to safety.

Another officer then spoke to the child who appeared calm and nodded her head.

The first words of the missing four-year-old upon her being miraculously found by police “alive and well” were: “My name is Cleo”.

In a statement released after Cleo was found, her parents Ellie Smith and Jake Gliddon said: “We are so thankful that our little girl is back within our arms and our family is whole again.”

The suspect is next due to appear in court on December 6.
