In episode seven of the podcast ‘My name is Cleo’ the search is getting desperate. Police have no leads and they’re trying anything to find the little girl.

That’s when they reveal they’ve used special agents to search the dark web for any signs of the four-year-old.

LISTEN TO THE LATEST EPISODE ABOVE.

In this episode, journalists Ben Downie and Daryna Zadvirna reveal their trip to the pub one night led to a fortuitous meeting with police, and how they then worked with investigators to keep Cleo’s story in the news, to keep people engaged and aware of her disappearance.

We also hear from surveillance expert Philip Branch and how mobile phone data can be used to solve a case, and just how intricate scouring through mobile data can be.

Join Host Natalie Bonjolo, regular guest Kristin Shorten and guests Ben Downie, Daryna Zadvirna and Philip Branch as they take you through the final three days in the search for Cleo Smith.
