Investigators have spoken to 20 sex offenders, but none are suspects.
Investigators spoke to as many as 20 registered sex offenders from the Carnarvon region, but they did not find any suspects.
“Given the information now that we’ve gleaned from the scene, the fact that the search has gone on for this period of time and we haven’t been able to locate her … it leads us to believe that she was taken from the tent,” Det Supt Rob Wilde said.
He stated that authorities were open to the possibility that Cleo was taken by someone they knew.
Cleo might have been driven eight-hours away from the campsite she was last seen. Cops suggested this as they pieced together her whereabouts.
Another suggestion is that Cleo was taken to the town of Kalbarri – some five hours away – and may have passed through the suburb of Meekatharra, which is 670km south-east.
