Becky and Sergio Celis attend special mass

TUCSON - Isabel Celis' parents attended a special mass for their missing daughter Sunday evening.

Hundreds came to St. Joseph Catholic Church to pray for the girl's safe return.

Isabel's parents, Becky and Sergio, wore purple because it is Isabel's favorite color.

The parents hugged dozens of people during the service.

Tucson's Bishop Gerald Kicanas was in Rome but sent a letter.

"We extend to the Celis family our support and promise of continued prayers until Isabel is returned," Kicanas wrote. "All in our community stand in solidarity with Sergio and Becky Celis and their sons, Julian and Sergio, during this agonizing time."

Cousins brought Isa's little league hat and teddy bear to the front of the church during the service.
