Posted 2:10 PM 4/25/2012 : Celis parents plea for daughter's return
TUCSON - The mother and father of Isabel Celis separately spoke in front of those gathered at the Tucson Police command center, pleading for the return of their daughter in both English and Spanish.
Surrounded by supporters in "Bring Isa Home" t-shirts, Rebecca and Sergio Celis appeared at 2 p.m., standing in front of the command center set up by Tucson Police near the east side neighborhood where their 6-year-old daughter went missing Friday night.
Rebecca spoke first, thanking the detectives, the community, and millions worldwide for their support, then saying: "We do not want the focus to be taken off Isabel by us being in front of the cameras or by the media. We are here today to plea for a safe return of our baby girl Isabel."
After she repeated her statement in Spanish, Sergio Celis, Isabel's father, spoke.
"We are cooperating to the fullest extent with the investigation," he said. "We are increasing the reward. Just please, please, to the person or persons who have Isabel: tell us your demands. Tell us what you want. We will do anything for her. We are looking - we are looking for you Isa. We love, and we miss you so much. We will never give up. We will never give up looking for you."
