'My name is Cleo': Four******
A four-year-old Australian girl abducted from a campsite 18 days ago was discovered "alive and well" during a raid on a locked house yesterday, telling her shocked and elated rescuers: "My name is Cleo."
Cleo Smith disappeared from her family's tent in remote Western Australia last month, sparking a frantic air, sea and ground search involving 100 officers and scores of volunteers.
Many feared the search would end in tragedy, but after a night raid on a home in the coastal town of Carnarvon – just a short drive from where she disappeared – police announced the little girl had been found alone, but alive.
"One of the guys jumped in front of me and picked her up," said detective Cameron Blaine, one of the four rescuers who entered the house at 1am.
Blaine said that after the initial shock he asked the little girl her name three times before receiving her electrifying response: "My name is Cleo."
Police admitted "seasoned detectives" were "openly crying with relief" at the discovery and when Cleo was reunited with her parents at a hospital a short time later.
Her mother Ellie took to social media to express her relief. "Our family is whole again," she posted on Instagram under a photo of Cleo.
Police later released an image of the beaming youngster on a hospital bed holding an ice pop, waving and smiling. Officers said she was in good spirits and bouncing around like "a little energizer bunny."
"It's very rare. It's something we all hoped in our hearts, and it's come true," police deputy commissioner Col Blanch said.
A 36-year-old local man has been detained and is said to be assisting with enquiries. He was expected to be charged later.

Olympic champion Huang reaches "double" doubles semis at Denmark Open******
ODENSE, Denmark, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Tokyo Olympic badminton champion Huang Dongping secured semifinal spots in both the mixed and women's doubles here on Friday at the BWF Denmark Open.
Huang and her Olympic title-winning partner Wang Yilyu outplayed Tang Chun Man and Tse Ying Suet from Hong Kong, China 21-14, 21-17 to reach the mixed doubles semifinals.
"The game is actually not as easy as what we've seen from the results. We had played many times before, including the Tokyo Olympics," said Wang. "Now we are in the semis and we will play the best of ourselves for the fans."
Paired with Zheng Yu, Huang stunned Tokyo Olympic women's doubles gold medalists, the fourth-seeded Greysia Polii and Apriyani Rahayu from Indonesia 14-21, 21-10, 21-13.
"I had not played women's doubles for a long while until the Uber Cup. It's really a surprise for us!" said Huang. "It looks like I'm energetic on the pitch, but actually I couldn't stay focus for some moments and was a bit going down."
Huang also expressed gratitude to her temporary partner Zheng. "It's not a success for me only, but also for my partner. She covers the middle and back court with much more moves."
"Our opponents made good start today and we are not playing confidently in the beginning," said Zheng. "Then we stopped thinking about the results and the games are turning to our side."
He Bingjiao struck compatriot Wang Zhiyi 21-16, 21-14 to set up a semifinal encounter with the second seed Akane Yamaguchi from Japan in the women's doubles.
"Wang and I know each other so well and we are under no pressure. The match is like an internal training for us," said the sixth-seeded He. "To reach the last four is a very satisfying and inspiring result for me at Denmark Open. I'll give my all to the next game."
Having played the Uber Cup as a newcomer before coming to the Denmark Open, Wang is hoping to improve as quickly as possible to be accepted as a key shuttler in the Chinese team.
"I was encouraged and motivated a lot in the top-class team events and I did not play many high ranking tournaments before," said the 21-year-old Wang. "The tour comes to an end now and it's really precious experience."
Another Chinese Olympian in Tokyo 2020, Du Yue, swallowed defeats both in the mixed and women's doubles.
Du and 20-year-old Feng Yanzhe lost to mixed doubles third seeds Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti from Indonesia 16-21, 21-18, 17-21.
And in the women's doubles quarterfinals, Du and her 21-year-old partner Li Wenmei were outclassed 21-19, 21-13 by the fifth-seeded Thais Jongkolphan Kititharakul/Rawinda Prajongjai who will face Huang and Zheng in the semis.
In another women's doubles last eight matchup, 21-year-old talents Liu Xuanxuan and Xia Yuting lost to third seeds Kim Soyeong and Kong Heeyong from South Korea. Enditem
