Candlelight vigil underway for Isabel Celis

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A candlelight vigil is being held for missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis tonight.

It is being held  at the Christian Faith Fellowship Church near Broadway and Craycroft at 7:00 p.m.

Family, friends, and volunteers have had several candlelight and prayer vigils in the past.

They are coming together once again to pray for the safe return of Isabel and to help continue spread the word about her disappearance.

It has now been more than three months since Isabel was last seen at her east side home.

Since she went missing in April, around 2,000 tips have been reported to police, but still no major breaks and no suspects have been named in the case.

In May, Child Protective Services increased their involvement in the case and it was learned that Isabel's two brothers were placed with Isabel's mother.

Isabel's father, Sergio, was in attendance at the vigil Friday night.

Next Friday volunteers will be meeting at Freedom Park for a "paper your streets" event, where they will pass out and place more missing flyers around town.

For more information on this case, including interviews with Isabel's parents and a timeline of events, you can view our special Finding Isabel section of our website.

Tucson News Now's Matt Mendes is at the vigil and will have a full report tonight on Fox 11 Tucson Now at 9 p.m. and KOLD News 13 at 10 p.m.

    It may be bad news for a bear spotted several times in an area in Rio Rico the last few weeks, state wildlife workers may have to put it down.  However, they may not have to kill it, IF neighbors change their ways.
