Isabel Celis' father asked a friend to read a statement to well-wishers at a candlelight vigil and Little League game at Freedom Park on Tuesday night.

Segio Celis thanked the Little League community for supporting his wife, Becky, and two sons since the disappearance of 6-year-old Isabel.

The statement was read by Joe Vega, Celis' friend and a coach with him for the Diamondbacks team in the Freedom Little League coach-pitch division.

"On behalf of myself, Becky and the boys, we would like to thank the Little League community for all of their support and ongoing prayers. I just can't be there right now. My family would like to be there, too. We just can't at this time. Thank you for all of your support."
