Number of Isabel Celis volunteers drops

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The number of volunteers who are helping in the search to find Isabel Celis is continuing to decrease.

Police have said numerous times how helpful the volunteers have been in generating tips and helping with the investigation since Isabel was reported missing nearly four weeks ago.

Yesterday just a few volunteers were manning the volunteer tent.

A couple of weeks ago there would be well over a dozen people, not including all the other volunteers out and about distributing flyers and doing other things.

Despite the drop in volunteers, the ones that are still helping say they are not giving up.

"When it comes, and it happens next to you, if nobody else says to do it you have to do it. You have to do it, and it does take a volunteer effort to make sure that she stays out there and that nobody forgets," volunteer Rey Sanders said.

Volunteers are urging anyone who wants to come help to please join them at the volunteer command center on the east side of Tucson near the intersection of Broadway and Craycroft in the Office Max parking lot.
