Cleo Smith search: Inconspicuous shack security camera ‘recorded Cleo’s voice’
Audio of Cleo Smith was recorded on a single CCTV camera at a beach shack, situated just 20m from where she was staying, the day before she vanished.
The motion-sensitive camera faces the front of the shack, capturing a wide shot of anyone who enters or exits the beach home. It also records audio.
Cleo, just four years of age, was heard on the camera, police have confirmed.
The camera is in a protective box with a glass front, making it inconspicuous to those staying in the area.
Police took copies of the footage and scoured through it, saying Sunday it had helped confirm Cleo was at the camp grounds prior to her disappearance.
It comes as the driver of a car seen near the camp site where Cleo went missing last weekend is being sought by West Australian police, who stress they are a not a suspect in the disappearance.
Detectives want to talk to the driver of the vehicle spotted two hours after Cleo was last seen in her family's tent, as well as anyone who was camping nearby.
Police believe Cleo was taken from the tent at the Blowholes site on WA's northwest coast in the early hours of last Saturday morning.
Detective Superintendent Rod Wilde on Sunday afternoon said a car was seen turning south off Blowholes Road between 3am and 3.30am that morning.
"We want the person or persons who were in that vehicle to come forward and contact police," Mr Wilde said.
"We want to know who they were and what they were doing."
Mr Wilde stressed the driver was not a suspect.
