    I have been following this story from the beginning too and have kept my opinions to myself. I am extremely happy that Chloe has been found alive and well. However from the very beginning i thought something was very off with the dad as well. I know everyone deals with grief differently but he was putting it all on.

    Its all good and well to defend people with additions such as drugs, but when these additions affect their families and innocent children especially it is completely unacceptable. What hope do children who are raised in environments such as this have?

    Shame on her parents, yes they do need help, but until they clean their act up the children should be raised in a more stable and SAFE environment.

    Couldn't agree more. Only concern should be for the children - it's irrelevant whether or not the parents are trying their best in this situation, they are the adults here with a responsibility over 4 young children so I don't really have much sympathy for them. Whereas the children did not ask to be put in this situation. Racking up thousands of dollars of drug debts while you have children is not doing your best, by any standards!

    It's a public forum, we are discussing a current news story and some of our opinions differ.
    What's the difference in this than when other news/affairs/topics are discussed?
    As a PP said our discussions won't change the outcome of how the professionals will handle this. It's simply a discussion - as we would discuss vaccines, breast feeding or the Daniel Morcombe case. The only difference is we all thought Brett Cowan was a skum sucking rodent who deserves to be locked up for the rest of his life whereas with this case opinions differ. You can't blame human instinct for having a certain feeling about something.

    If the family choose to google themselves then they do so at their own risk, DH was once upon a time in the public eye and he kept right away from looking up gossip about himself because he knew everyone was going to have opinions on him.
    If you don't want to read sh!t about yourself, don't look for it. They would have to be a little naive to think that the internets going to be full of sunshine and rainbows for them.

    News story relating to the press conference:

    http://www.news-mail.com.au/news/chl...olice/2228233/

    Renewed call for information on 'cowards' who took Chloe


    UPDATE 1.20PM MONDAY:
    Speaking today at a press conference in Childers, Detective Inspector Bruce McNab has renewed calls for information about the disappearance of Childers toddler Chloe Campbell.

    "We're still conducting a number of inquiries into the events surrounds the disappearance of Chloe and also her reappearance," he said.

    "We're examining the house still, conducting forensic examinations at the house and interviewing a number of people who have come forward to provide us with information in relation to Chloe.

    "I think it's important to stress that the cowards that left her in the showgrounds' yard in the early hours of the morning just after midnight did so in the darkness and what we're focused on now is attempting to find the people who removed her from her family home and then left her in such a fashion in the darkness."

    When questioned about the motives for Chloe's disappearance, Det Insp McNab said police were keeping an open mind in their investigations.

    "I think it's really important that we all keep an open mind in relation to what was the motivation behind Chloe being taken from her family home and being returned in the way that she was," he said.

    "It's dangerous for me to talk about specific lines of inquiry because I don't want to give fuel to any rumours that are going around town."

    How about they take some responsibility for their actions?

    People like the morcombes - they were blameless in Daniels disappearance. These parents are not.

    I agree. This is a reminder to all that as parents, what we are involved in can affect our children. Whether it is drugs, stealing etc. I guess thinking about others and consequences isn't as important to some.

    Poor innocent kids were not asked to be born into that family. If this isn't the wake up call for her parents to change and seek help, then I think the gov should intervene. It is now a life/death situation.

    Police have taken DNA samples from more than 20 people as they investigate the unusual kidnapping of Queensland toddler Chloe Campbell.


    Detective Inspector Bruce McNab said DNA samples had been taken from about 20 people, including family and friends and "other people around town whose names have come up".

    ...

    Inspector McNab said reports Mr Campbell was associated with a drug-dealing family in Childers, were so far unfounded.

    "I don't know who the drug families are, because we haven't heard of them," he said.

    Very interesting read ... seems the information supplied 'reliable source/family member' quoted by 7 has not been found to be accurate by the QPS.

    Full article for those who don't want to click ...

    Police have taken DNA samples from more than 20 people as they investigate the unusual kidnapping of Queensland toddler Chloe Campbell.

    The three-year-old was snatched from her family's Childers home, about 300 kilometres north of Brisbane, about 6am last Thursday.

    Her family believe the intruder snatched Chloe from the lounge room, where she was sleeping with her sisters on Wednesday night, via an unlocked window.

    She was found by police 42 hours later after being dumped at the Childers Showgrounds across the road from her Ridgeway Street home about 1am on Sunday.

    Detective Inspector Bruce McNab said DNA samples had been taken from about 20 people, including family and friends and "other people around town whose names have come up".

    "We've had a fantastic result in getting Chloe back alive and well ... but it still leaves that unanswered question of, 'Who took Chloe?"' Inspector McNab said.

    It has been reported Chloe was abducted and held hostage over her father's alleged drug debt, with family friend Melissa Small telling News Corp the three-year-old had described her kidnappers as "daddy's friends".

    Ms Small would not speak to media on Monday, saying she did not want to jeopardise the police investigation.

    However, Inspector McNab said Chloe had made no mention of "daddy's friends" when interviewed by specialist police at the weekend.

    "We've spoken to her a number of times and she's certainly given us some really valuable information that we're following up, but she's not said that," he said.

    "Likewise, we've spoken to a number of family and friends, who have come forward to tell us things that Chloe told them that we haven't heard from Chloe.

    "But at no time has anyone told us that she's uttered the words 'daddy's friends'."

    Inspector McNab said reports Mr Campbell was associated with a drug-dealing family in Childers, were so far unfounded.

    "I don't know who the drug families are, because we haven't heard of them," he said.

    The morning after his daughter disappeared, Mr Campbell said he was certain the kidnapper knew his family, but stopped short of revealing more.

    Not long before his daughter was found, Mr Campbell was involved in a drunken fight outside the town's Federal Hotel.

    It is understood the distraught father, who had been on a drinking binge since his daughter's disappearance, was arrested and charged about 7pm on Friday.

    Inspector McNab said detectives were following "some lines of inquiry", but would not confirm if any persons of interest had been identified.

    "We've got a number of possible scenarios that we've thought of, or that people have told us, and each one of those we're following to its logical conclusion," Inspector McNab said.

    "We've spoken to a pretty broad cross-section of the Childers community."

    The family received no threats or ransom demands during Chloe's two-day disappearance.

    Inspector McNab said detectives were working around-the-clock from an investigations centre established in Childers, with the help of local officers.

    "I know, moving around the streets of Childers, there's people in the local community who are really concerned about how this person could take a young child out of her bed," he said.

    "These cowards, and you can't call them anything but cowards, have then left a three-year-old girl in the dark of the showgrounds in the hope that she finds her way home, or someone finds her - a more cowardly act, you couldn't possibly imagine."

    Inspector McNab said police had made inquiries as far south as Tweed Heads, New South Wales during the investigation.

    "We've still got specialist investigators in town and if people have information to tell us we'd ask them to come forward ... it doesn't matter how obscure or unrelated it may seem we want to talk to the community," he said.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
