TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Today marks the 8th birthday of Isabel Celis, who has been missing for more than a year. 

She was six years old when she disappeared from her family's home near Broadway and Craycroft.  Isabel's family is holding a special church ceremony to honor her birthday today.

Birthday wishes have been pouring in for Isabel on the Facebook page her family set up.  She was only six when she disappeared and in the year since she went missing, law enforcement has received hundreds of tips. 

Police believe she was abducted, but who did it and where she may have been taken is still a mystery. 

Isabel's mother posted to Facebook on Monday that the family will gather for a special mass in honor of Isabel's 8th birthday and an invitation to pray with the family has been extended to the community.

The birthday mass will be held at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Parish on Craycroft today, around 9 a.m.

Another mass is planned on September 1, also in Isabel's honor.
