Police said the home was around 50 kilometres from the campsite where Cleo and her family were staying. She has now been reunited with her family.
In a video post on the police force's public Facebook page, Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch said, "It's my privilege to announce that in the early hours of this morning, the Western Australia Police Force rescued Cleo Smith. Cleo is alive and well."
Police said that one of their officers who entered the property picked Cleo up and said, "What's your name?" To which she replied, "My name is Cleo."
The statement added, "This is the outcome we all hoped and prayed for. It's the outcome we've achieved because of some incredible police work."
A local man is in custody and currently being questioned by detectives, it added.
