Police have warned the search for missing four-year-old girl Cleo Smith in Western Australia is growing more urgent with every hour.

As emergency services enter day five of trying to find the young girl in the Gascoyne region, searchers are throwing everything at the operation.

At the Blowholes campsite near Carnarvon, where Cleo was reported missing last Saturday morning, the police mounted section has returned for a second day.

The horses are being used to scour some of the harder-to-reach dunes in the vicinity and navigate some of the near-impenetrable vegetation that covers the rugged coastline.

A fresh police pilot has also arrived and further drone searching will be conducted under clearer skies after a storm yesterday briefly suspended the search.

Australian Defence Force personnel are also offering their help.

Cleo’s family say she was last seen in their tent at 1:30am on Saturday, when she woke her mother Ellie Smith asking for a drink of water.

When Ms Smith woke later at 6:00am, Cleo and her sleeping bag were gone and the entrance to the tent was unzipped.

Ms Smith said she had been sleeping just metres away with her partner Jake Gliddon in a separate section of the tent, but neither heard a thing during the night.

Fears Cleo may have been abducted

During an emotional plea for information yesterday, Ms Smith said her daughter was “not the type to wander off” and that Cleo was afraid of the ocean.

The couple now fear the four-year-old was abducted.

Investigators are also treating that as a strong possibility and are concerned she may not even be in the region anymore.

Despite those concerns, relief State Emergency Service volunteers have been drafted in to join the search around the campsite. 

A nationwide appeal has also been issued asking people to keep an eye out for Cleo, and anyone with information is urged to come forward.

In Carnarvon, posters with her picture are plastered on every shopfront and the community has also made bumper stickers featuring her image.
