TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police searched a wash north of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base for evidence related to the search for a 6-year-old Tucson girl who was reported missing on April 21.

About 30 officers equipped with shovels and picks combed through the area this morning and left at about 1 p.m.

Police said nothing was discovered.

TPD Sgt. Maria Hawke told Tucson News Now that investigators were looking for anything of "evidentiary value" in the case.

Hawke said it is not the first time they've looked in the area near Golf Links and South Swan roads.

Isabel Celis was reported missing from her house about two miles away, near Broadway and Craycroft. Police searched an area with a roughly 3-mile radius in the days immediately after she was reported missing, and this site is within that area.

Police say they are following 1,000 leads in the case but have not named or eliminated anyone as a suspect.

Yesterday in a press briefing, Tucson Police chief Roberto Villaseñor said the police have searched lakes and landfills, contacted all 542 registered sex offenders in the area, and canvassed neighborhoods in an effort to find Isabel.

Tucson News Now has a crew at the scene near Golf Links and Swan roads and we will update this story as details become available.
