TPD 'encourages' Celis family to speak to media

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is encouraging the parents of Isabel Celis to speak with the media again.

The first and last time we heard publicly from the family was last Wednesday.

That was when Becky and Sergio Celis made emotional pleas for the safe return of their daughter.

The Tucson Police Department says it has passed along two pages of media requests for interviews with both local and national media to Isabel's parents. TPD feels it could be extremely helpful in the search for their daughter who has been missing for 11 days.

"We've said all along that we think that it's important to keep the investigation in the forefront, to keep the tips coming in. So, we've made that known. Whether they chose to do that or not, I've said all along that's entirely up to them," Lt. Fabian Pacheco of the Tucson Police Department said.

Pacheco also said that the family did express interest yesterday in doing some interviews.

The TPD added there was never a point in the investigation when they told the family not to speak.
