The mother of missing girl Cleo Smith has posted yet another heartfelt video online of her daughter pleading for her to return home.

The mum’s video and fresh plea for her daughter’s safe return comes as the desperate search for the four-year-old enters its 13th day.

Late on Thursday afternoon Cleo’s mum Ellie posted a series of videos on her Instagram account of Cleo dancing in a pink ballerina outfit.

She also posted a video of the little girl holding a cupcake with a sparkle in it and another clip of her dancing in a pink dress.

“My kind hearted baby girl, mummy wants you home,” Ms Smith posted at the end of the video.

Earlier on Thursday Ms Smith posted another story to her Instagram page with a selfie of her and four-year-old Cleo, pleading with people with any information to contact police.

“If you know anything please CALL the police!” the post read. “We want our baby home.”

Ms Smith also reposted a missing poster with a picture of her daughter, advertising the $1 million reward for information leading to her return.

There have been more than 200 reported sightings of Cleo Smith across the country since she vanished, police revealed on Thursday.

Despite the staggering amount of tip-offs from the public nationwide, Det-Supt Rod Wilde said none had turned out to be the missing four-year-old girl, after thorough investigations by police.

“Unfortunately all of those have proved unfruitful,” he said.

“That’s been national as well, other policing jurisdictions have helped us and followed those leads through for us, so we’re very grateful for that.”
