TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sergio and Becky Celis, parents of missing Isabel Celis, said whatever the reason is, they are happy police continue to try to track down new leads.

Tucson News Now caught up with Sergio Celis as he arrived home from work this afternoon.

He and his wife Becky are hoping the revamped search and fresh sets of eyes by new detectives will help bring their daughter home.

Police talked to a lot of neighbors these past two days but Sergio and Becky have not yet been interviewed.

The family welcomes the stepped up police presence.

"Of course, it's more than welcome and we wish it would've been done earlier if that's what the direction this was going to take," Sergio said.

"Whatever comes out of it. I mean, this has to be positive. There's no other way to look at this," Becky said.

The Celis' have also been dealing with a family emergency: a relative is in the hospital.

Police will continue to stay out here through the night to talk to neighbors.
