Tucson police expected to give update in 2012 disappearance of Isabel Celis
Apr 02, 2017, 01:05
Tucson police Chief Chris Magnus says remains found in a remote area in Pima County about a month ago are those of six-year-old Isabel Celis, who went missing from her family home almost five years ago.
Isabel Celis was last seen on 20 April, 2012, when she went to bed and was reported missing by her father when he found she was not in her room the following morning.
No information was given as to what led police to the location, but Magnus said it was not "happenstance".
"The death of a child is a loss to the family and the entire community", said Police Chief Chris Magnus.
Isabel's disappearance from her family's home resulted in a missing child case that involved a massive search in Tucson by hundreds of law enforcement personnel, national media attention and public scrutiny of her parents.
At 8 a.m., Sergio said he discovered his daughter missing when he went to wake her so she could get ready for her Little League game. However, they have found what they believe are suspicious circumstances pointing to an area of entry into the family home. Anxious about what could have happened to his daughter, her father reported her missing to the Tucson, Arizona police.

Magnus did not release many details regarding the girl's remains and their recovery of her body.
CNN affiliate KGUN said the girl's family released this statement: "We want to thank the community for the support they have continued to show for Isa over the years and for refusing to give up hope". They say they are grateful the search is still on, but it was tough to look at this new picture. We ask for our privacy during this time so that we can do that.
The family of six-year-old Isabel Celis said in a statement issued by Tucson Medical Center, where the girl's mother works, that it is their time to mourn.
Magnus said investigators were again asking for the public's help in solving the case. He said that "reverberations" about what happened to Celis have gone well beyond the Tucson area and even the state of Arizona.
