A missing three-year-old girl dubbed ‘Australia’s Maddy’ has been found alive almost two days after disappearing.
She was found by police close to the family home and was taken to hospital for a check-up as the massive search operation launched to find her was called to a halt. Her mother, Tammy, was taken to meet her at the hospital and was described as overjoyed.
Chloe was discovered missing on Thursday morning, local time, and a window of the room she was sharing with two siblings was found open. Her father, Garth, told reporters a footprint had been found on the roof of a vehicle parked underneath the window.
Her re-appearance came after security footage was found of two men and a young child close to the family home shortly after midnight on Thursday.
Before Chloe turned up alive her mother had described the disappearance as “a nightmare I can’t wake up from” and added: “All I’ve got at the moment is hope.”
