He added: “I want to thank Cleo’s parents, the Western Australian community and the many volunteers. And of course, I want to thank my colleagues in the Western Australia Police Force.  I can confirm we have a man from Carnarvon in custody who is currently being questioned by detectives.  We’ll have more to say on the rescue of Cleo as the day unfolds. For now – Welcome home Cleo.” Published: by Radio NewsHub
