REUNITED | Cleo Smith ‘slept in the same room’ with her family
WA Police Deputy Commissioner says the parents of four-year-old Cleo Smith were overjoyed to be reunited with their daughter.
The suspect has been taken to hospital for a second time, but there are no serious injuries.
WA Police Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch told Ben Fordham the family were relieved.
“Ellie and Jake had been through 18 days of hell and I know Australia have felt that with them.
“I’m pretty sure they all slept in the same room just cuddling all night.”
Mr Blanch says it was an emotional moment for the police too.
“Four fathers walked into that room… they might have been wearing guns and detective suits but they were four fathers.”
