TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tucson police said a surveillance video that showed five people walking in the area near the home of a missing girl is from a night after her disappearance.

Isabel Celis, 6, was reported missing from her home on Saturday morning, April 21.

At a news conference on Monday, April 30, Lt. Fabian Pacheco said the video they have is from Saturday night/Sunday morning. The police are waiting for the company that provided the video to give them video from Friday night/Saturday morning.

Pacheco said police in Mexico have been helping with the investigation by checking tips and following leads, but nothing of significance has been uncovered.

Police will continue the search "as long as (TPD) continues to receive viable information," Pacheco said.

He said 88-CRIME is still taking almost a dozen tips a day.

Pacheco said the family continues to cooperate with police. He said Tucson Police have encouraged them to talk to the media and they have been given a list of media outlets that want to talk to them.

Pacheco said he hopes the Celis family will provide any interview so the public can "judge for themselves." He said that TPD is in frequent contact with the family.
