Who is Terence Darrell Kelly ?

Kelly’s identity was revealed later Wednesday when the alleged abductor spent time in the hospital for medical treatment.
Arrested and Charged
Kelly, who has yet to plead guilty to his charges, was arrested on a nearby street around the same time.
On Wednesday, Western Australian Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said police could be in Carnarvon for up to 15 days while they analyze what happened to the boy.
The girl was brought home with her mother Ellie Smith, her stepfather Jake Gliddon and her younger sister Isla de ella and it is said that she was happy and playing.

It is understood that he was injured again in his cell overnight and was returned to the hospital on Thursday.
Social media posts reveal photos of Mr. Kelly holding two Bratz toy dolls.
Another image shows a room full of toy figures.
Kelly was questioned by detectives for several hours and subsequent charges include a charge of forcibly removing a child under the age of 16.
During an appearance in Carnarvon Magistrates Court on Thursday, the Magistrate described Mr. Kelly’s case as “notorious.”
Dressed in a black T-shirt, he looked stern as he sat on the dock, manned by two policemen.
He was represented by an attorney from the Geraldton Aboriginal Legal Service, who appeared via video link and did not request bail.
Detectives from Task Force Rodia were in court when Mr. Kelly appeared.
Off the court, Det. Senator Sergeant Cameron Blaine said that while he could not comment further on the matter, police were pleased to be able to press charges.
When asked if it felt good to finally have the matter before the court, he said, “He certainly does.”
“It was the culmination of a lot of hard work,” he said.
It comes when Kelly’s neighbors told The West Australian that he was a “very quiet” man who “kept himself to himself.”
Everyone who lived on the street said they knew him, and some said he was family.
Everyone was surprised to discover that he supposedly had a four-year-old girl in a bedroom of his house.
The four-year-old girl disappeared from a tent at Blowholes camp, about 950 kilometers north of Perth, after the family arrived on October 16. Her mother saw her for the last time around 1.30 in the morning.
The search that followed captured national attention and her impressive rescue was hailed as a miracle.
Cleowas was found early Wednesday in a locked home in Carnarvon, a coastal city north of Perth and 75 kilometers south of where she disappeared.
