A week after four-year-old Cleo Smith disappeared, police have turned their attention to her family's home.

A forensic squad has been dusting the fence and windows of the Carnarvon home this morning.

Officers have also been taking photos of sections of the fence.

A police source has told the ABC that officers were only gathering evidence on the outside of the property at this stage.

It is understood they are investigating the possibility of a break-in.

The ABC is not suggesting that Cleo's family were in any way involved in her disappearance.

Cleo Smith disappeared from her family's campsite nearly a week ago — here's what we know so far

  Cleo Smith disappeared from her family's campsite nearly a week ago — here's what we know so far It's been nearly a week since Cleo Smith vanished from her family's tent at the Blowholes, north of Carnarvon. Amidst all the information they have been able to gather to date, police remain baffled.The desperate search for the missing girl has now entered its sixth day, as police continue to painstakingly search the campsite near where she was last seen.

Children's play equipment, and a toy hanging on a clothesline, can be seen in the yard.

The family had spent the week staying at the campsite where Cleo disappeared from, but it is understood they are now staying elsewhere.

Police yesterday issued a plea for businesses — including bakeries and children's clothing stores within 1,000 kilometres of where Cleo was last seen — to provide CCTV and dashcam footage.

The plea came as the search around the campsite ended after police on horseback and officers on drones conducted a final scan of the area.

Posters bearing Cleo's image have been plastered on store windows across the state, including in Perth.

The WA government has posted a $1 million reward for information about her disappearance.
