TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police have confirmed that the brothers of a missing Tucson girl have been placed with their mother.

Isabel Celis, 6, was reported missing on April 21 from the home she lived in with her two older brothers and her parents, Sergio and Rebecca Celis.

Today, Sgt. Maria Hawke of the Tucson Police Department confirmed that the boys are with Rebecca Celis and that Sergio Celis has been ordered to have no contact with his two sons.

Police said this does not mean he's a suspect in his daughter's disappearance.

Detectives continue to work the case but police still don't know what happened to Isabel. They have not identified a suspect.

On Friday, TPD issued a statement saying that Child Protective Services had increased its involvement in the case to ensure the welfare of the children.

It was subsequently learned that the boys had been placed with one of their parents, but officials wouldn't identify which parent had the children.

Tucson police will hold a press briefing at 3 p.m. today. Tucson News Now will stream the briefing live on our live video page.
