Searchers scour Tucson for missing 6-year-old girl
April 22, 2012

Law officers searched Tucson areas early Sunday for a 6-year-old Arizona girl who was reported missing from her bedroom, a disappearance that police are calling suspicious and a possible kidnapping.
 ::snipping2::
After a fruitless day of searching Saturday, numerous patrol and search and rescue personnel continued the hunt Sunday morning, Hawke said.

She said that at any given time, 75 to 100 officers from a variety of agencies were taking part, including police, FBI agents and a large contingent of deputy U.S. Marshals.

Teams combed an area of Tucson Saturday around East Broadway Boulevard and Craycroft Road into the evening using street patrols, canines, detectives and a helicopter.

At one point late Saturday night, communications operator Patrick Olea said the area encompassed "pretty much the entire east side."

Also involved are Department of Corrections bloodhounds, search and rescue experts and a Pima County rapid response team.

Friends of the family also fanned out to distribute fliers with a photo of Isabel, KVOA-TV in Tucson reported.

Tucson police search for missing 6-year-old girl
By Phil Benson
April 22, 2012

TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Tucson police have been joined by FBI agents and a large contingent of deputy U.S. Marshals as they search for a 6-year-old girl who went missing from her house.
 ::snipping2::
Sgt. Maria Hawke says police are searching the area of the Arizona city around East Broadway Boulevard and Craycroft Road using street patrols, canines, detectives and a helicopter.

Police say they are investigating all potential scenarios, including the possibility that Isabel got up and wandered out of the home she shares with her parents and two brothers or that she was kidnapped.

6 Year Old Isabel Mercedes Celis Missing Since 4/20/12 in Tucson, AZ … Family Believes She was Kidnapped by a Stranger

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2012/04/21/6-year-old-isabel-mercedes-celis-missing-since-42012-in-tucson-az/

UPDATE III: Isabel’s uncle and family spokesperson Justin Mastromarino said Isabel’s bedroom window was open. He also said her family is a loving one.

Accoridng to accounts the 6 year olds bedroom window was open and the blinds were pushed to the side. Good grief America, please, I beg you ... do not keep bedroom windows open to children's rooms especially when they are on the 1st floor. With as many registered sex offenders that lived in the area and their ability to stalk and scope out a child, don't add the the problem by having an "enter" sign on your home!

Such a beautiful child.  Prayers she is found alive and soon! 

So many crimes seem to be ones of opportunity.  I agree with Red.  Please, people, lock your windows and doors for the love of Mike!

Police hold press conference regarding missing 6-year-old
CREATED 1:40 PM

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Chief Roberto Villasenor of the Tucson Police Department held a press conference at 2:00 p.m. Sunday to update the public on the disappearance of Isabel Celis, 6. Here's the latest.

The little girl has not been found, but as many as 200 law enforcement officers, local and federal, are searching for her around the clock. Along with Tucson Police, FBI, US Marshals, Pima County Sheriff's Deputies, Department of Corrections bloodhounds and FBI dogs from Virginia are taking part in the search.

Was Isabel abducted? Police aren't saying that but are calling this a "suspicious disappearance" and "possible abduction". They aren't giving any specific details about the condition of the girl's bedroom but are looking into a possible entry point of the bedroom. Family members tell KGUN 9 that a window in Isabel's window was found pushed open.

Here we go again....    I have a very bad feeling about this case.  The circumstances surrounding her disappearance, and the time she's been missing, are just not good.  May God bless and protect her.  Hopefully she will be found safe.

FBI dogs search missing child's Tucson home
Published April 23, 2012
Associated Press
 ::snipping2::
TUCSON, Ariz. –  Investigators early Monday sent FBI dogs trained for urban searches into the Tucson home where a 6-year-old girl disappeared as teams of law officers worked to determine if she was abducted.

The dogs arrived from the FBI's Virginia headquarters late Sunday and began searching at the home around midnight, said police Sgt. Marco Borboa.
 
"We have deployed the dogs and they're working at the residence," he said Monday.
 
Officers kept the whole neighborhood block where Isabel lives cordoned off for a second day Sunday.
  ::snipping2::
More than 150 law enforcement officers were involved in the effort, which included a fourth search of a three-mile radius around the home in temperatures that reached the high-90s, police Lt. Fabian Pacheco said at a Sunday evening news conference

Family friend Mary Littlehorn said she heard from others close to the family that a window screen in the girl's bedroom had been knocked down.
Littlehorn, who joined other family friends at a police command post, said authorities separated the two parents for hours Saturday as they questioned them. She said it was difficult for them knowing their little girl was out there somewhere.
 
"She hasn't been allowed to help look for her daughter," Littlehorn said of Becky Celis.

She said Becky Celis is a registered nurse in the pediatrics unit and Sergio Celis is a dental hygienist. There's no way anyone in the family is involved in the disappearance, she said.
 
"We all feel this is somebody who's been watching 'Isa' for some amount of time to know where her bedroom is," Littlehorn said.

My heart breaks for this family.

This news prompted me to check the locks on my windows--I was appalled to find 2 downstairs windows unlocked. The weather's been pretty and I guess my quiet,  friendly neighborhood gives me a sense of security...but there is no excuse. Just a reminder to stay safe out there, everyone! Smile

Suspicion over 'entry point’ in Tucson girl search


Quote
She said Becky Celis is a registered nurse in the pediatrics unit and Sergio Celis is a dental hygienist. 

Most cases involving parents don't include those so educated.  I hope that doesn't sound like bias or profiling.  I'm just thinking of Lisa Irvin, Zahara Baker, Caylee Anthony, Shaniya Davis, etc...  One would think that if there was abuse and a medical emergency, these two would know what to do to help a child. 

I'm not sure what to think about this case.

Missing Tucson Girl Isabel Celis : Landfill Searched
By Collen Curry
April 23, 2012

Tucson cops searched a landfill without success today after an FBI search dog came upon a "hit" in the home of missing 6-year-old girl Isabel Mercedes Celis.

Having police turn to a landfill for evidence of the girl was a grim turn in the investigation.

Searchers combed through garbage at the landfill and continued canvassing a 3-mile area around the girl's home to try and solve what they say has become a likely abduction case.

"We have information we obtained from the dogs that has necessitated more follow-up investigation," Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor said today.

Police have evacuated the Celis family from their home today following the dog search, which involved one cadaver dog and one scent-following dog, Villasenor said. They are treating the house as a crime scene.
