My name is Cleo. I am 4 years old. I came from Guatemala.
Yes, Guatemala. On Wednesday, our community in Loma Linda in Southern California gathered for a prayer vigil that ended with the news that four-year-old Cleo had been found safe in Australia.
Out of nowhere a beautiful description of Cleo was posted to Facebook late Wednesday, along with a photo of her.
After a lengthy search, the police believed the information that Cleo might be in Australia. The community in Cleo’s hometown of Guatemala waited nervously for an update on her whereabouts.

On Thursday, Cleo was found in Australia. The Child Abduction Recovery Team were contacted and Cleo is now safe.
During this time, Cleo’s picture circulated across social media and the local community of Guatemala circulated a message asking for prayers.
#GenesisGambino lost her heart to us. One of her mom’s names is Elizabeth, so we called her E. I called her Rev. Cleo for a short time when we were concerned, and she eventually came back home. We are waiting for Cleo to come home so we can say she is ready to go to school! This is what I love doing. ❤️ https://t.co/OTZkR5y97b — Fox Crew 19 (@FOX19) October 18, 2018
Thanks to more than 1,600 people on Facebook, Cleo has been found safe. My heart is full.
