Cleo Smith: Zoe Marshall asks why WA Police shared hospital photo

It was the photo millions of Aussies had been waiting for: a smiling, happy Cleo Smith reunited with her mother after she went missing for 18 excruciating days.

But not everyone found the image released by WA Police on Wednesday afternoon particularly heart-warming.

TV and radio host Zoe Marshall, the wife of NRL star Benji Marshall, said the photo of Cleo waving for the camera and eating an icy pole made her feel ‘uncomfortable’.

She reposted the widely shared image of Cleo on Instagram Stories but obscured the child’s face with a block of text, which read: ‘This makes me so uncomfortable.

‘Why is there a photo of her waving and smiling? Why is there someone taking a photo and sharing it with the world at all?’

She added: ‘What this little girl has endured. I just don’t get it. Let her recover, be with her family, get the camera out of her face.’

After her post made headlines, Zoe gave a statement to Daily Mail Australia praising the police investigators for doing an ‘incredible’ job.

She also said she reacted the way she did to the hospital photo because, as a mother herself, she ‘instinctively felt protective’ of Cleo after everything she’d been through.

‘I’m so relieved and happy that Cleo is home and safe with her family where she belongs. As a mum of two small children this story really hit home,’ she said.

‘When Cleo was found I instinctively felt protective of the family and what they’ve been through.

‘Like everyone in Australia, I just want Cleo and her parents to have the privacy to heal and recover. I wish them only the best.’

‘The WA Police and the investigators did an incredible, amazing job and are to be applauded,’ she concluded.

WA Police shared the photo because of the overwhelming public interest in the case and it was presumably released with Cleo’s family’s permission.

The little girl seemed happy for her photo to be taken and her mother, Ellie Smith, can be seen holding her feet in the bottom right corner.

The photo of a smiling Cleo propped up on her hospital bed eating an icy pole has been shared millions of times around the world.

Many Australian celebrities posted it on Wednesday alongside messages of support for the child’s family.

Zoe isn’t the only WAG to weigh in on Cleo’s disappearance and miracle rescue.

Jesinta Franklin, who is married to AFL superstar Lance Franklin, used the child’s discovery to highlight the ‘disparity’ in media coverage of missing children who are white and those who are black or Indigenous.

‘Without taking away from the joy of finding a missing child alive and well, I can’t help but think about the disparity that exists in this country between missing children who are white and Indigenous children when it comes to the visibility and coverage of the case,’ she wrote on Instagram Stories.

‘I have read so many heartbreaking stories of missing Indigenous children that garner hardly any media coverage or the social media coverage that a case like Cleo’s did. 

‘I have no doubt the widespread broadcasting of information in regards to the case assisted the phenomenal efforts of the WA police force in locating this beautiful little girl and reuniting her with her family.

‘Posting this because I think we need to do better for all children who go missing and their families.’

Jesinta, like Zoe, later deleted her post.

Jesinta is mother to daughter Tullulah, 20 months, and son Rocky, seven months.

Her husband is Sydney Swans star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin, a proud Noongar-Wajuk man whose ancestors hail from south-west Western Australia.

Indigenous people account for 17.5 per cent of all unsolved missing persons cases in Western Australia, despite making up just three per cent of the local population. 

In August 2019, the families of 15 missing Aboriginal children united for a state-wide rally in NSW to raise awareness for Indigenous cases.

Cleo disappeared from a remote campsite in Western Australia on October 16 and was found alive at 12.46am on Wednesday when police stormed a public housing home after a sudden tip off with a ‘needle in haystack’ clue.

Police feared the missing girl could have been spirited away anywhere in the country – but instead she was under their noses all along in a rundown house just 3km from her home and 75km from the campsite.

‘What’s your name?’ officers asked as they scooped her up into their arms. ‘My name is Cleo,’ she replied.

That rundown house on Tonkin Crescent in Brockman, in the northern suburbs of Carnarvon in northwest Western Australia, is just kilometres from where she lived in South Carnarvon.

Right in the middle is the town’s main shopping centre where the 36-year-old resident of the house, Terry Smith, was seen by neighbours buying Kimbies nappies at Woolworths. 

Cleo was likely already locked up in the house when her mother, Ellie Smith, and stepfather, Jake Gliddon, awoke at 6am to find she was no longer lying next to them and her baby sister, Isla, in their tent at Blowholes camping grounds. 

Smith remains in police custody but is yet to be charged. WA Police have confirmed they believe no one else was involved in the alleged abduction.
