TUCSON - Just shy of a week and still no sign of 6-year old Isabel celis. She's been missing from her east side home since late Friday or early Saturday morning.
Tucson police are looking for five people believed to be two males and three females who were walking east along the northern side of Saint Joseph's Catholic church between 1 and 1:30 early Saturday morning on April 21st. Police believe the group may have been leaving the area of the Cactus Moon nightclub or Risky Business Restaurant and Bar.
Police say they may have information that could be crucial to their investigation.
Saint Joseph's Church is where the Celis family worships. They have posted a sign for all to see "Pray for the safe return of the Isabel Celis."
Linda Pike lives down the street from the Celis family, she says, "I know in my heart she's going to come home."
A picture a little Isabel is on the Pikes front door. They've lived the neighborhood for 16 years. David Pike says, " When she moved in she was in a stroller we watched her get to six years old"
So imagine the horror the Pikes felt when Isabel's older brother came to their house in a panic looking for his baby sister last Saturday. "The panic, the sheer terror was already there, the helpless feeling."
The Pikes say in their opinion too many people are speculating as to what happened. Linda Pike says, "That doesn't matter we have to focus on the victims and that's Isabel and her family and they need all our love and support that we can get them.
David Pike agrees he also says the public should be supporting Tucson police he says they've come to his house and the neighbors house numerous times. "That's a minor inconvenience that's nothing to put up with I feel like they are doing a great job and they will bring Isabel home."
The Pikes say the Celis family is very loving and very caring. They moved into the neighborhood so they could be closer to one of their mother's who suffered a stroke.
The Pikes say their heart goes out to the Celis family.
