TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police have released an age-enhanced rendering of Isabel Celis on Monday, more than three years after the six-year-old was abducted from her Tucson home. 

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the computer-generated image using Celis family photos. 

Tucson police released the image on Monday, July 13, and her family is hopeful it points investigators in the right direction. 

"I'm thankful and grateful," Isabel's mother Becky Celis said. "I just hope this will help bring my baby home."

In the picture, Isa's dark-brown hair is shoulder-length. She has greenish-brown eyes and the same dimples seen in previously-released photos. 

Isabel was reported missing by her father on the morning of April 21, 2012. By all indications, she was snatched from her bedroom. 

More than 250 law enforcement officers from local, state and federal agencies including the FBI scoured a three-miles radius of the home, located near Park Place Mall, looking for any sign of the girl. 

Since then, Tucson police have pursued more than 2,200 leads, interviewed multiple persons of interest from several states and Mexico, and spent more than $1 million on the investigation.

    Why did Cracker Barrel fire Brad's wife? It's really no one's business, other than Brad's and his wife's, but that hasn't stopped people around the world from demanding answers after a Harrison County, IN, man publicly asked the restaurant chain why his wife Nanette was let go from her job at the Cracker Barrel in Corydon.
