Tucson Police give update on Isabel Celis case

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police provided an update in the case of missing 6-year old Isabel Celis, who now has been missing for more than two weeks.

During a media briefing on Saturday, Lt. Fabian Pacheo told Tucson News Now about 15-20 analysts and detectives are working on the case today.

Police have received more than 900 leads in the case, Pacheco said.

"The vast majority are not good leads, but we have to follow up on all of them."

Large amounts of false leads and rumors have been coming from social media, according to Pacheco.

Police continue to encourage the community to call in any tips to call 9-1-1 or 88-Crime. Detectives are also asking for any video from the public in the case.

Pacheco said detectives have not identified possible suspects in Isabel's disappearance.

"We're continuing to explore all scenarios. Nobody is a focus of it, and nobody is eliminated."

Pacheco also said detectives continue to operate on the assumption that Isabel is still alive, and they will be able to safely bring her back to her family.

"We don't have any reason to believe she isn't alive."

Pacheco said after two weeks, there has been a tremendous amount of pressure on detectives who are working on the case.  

"Many of the detectives go home still thinking about the case, still thinking about details that they need to look at for the next day."
