Posted 10:02 AM 4/27/2012 : Police looking for video from Freedom Park taken last Friday night
TUCSON - More details were revealed on last night's search at Lakeside Park at this morning's briefing by Tucson Police Department.
Lieutenant Fabian Pacheco said a tip led TPD to join forces with the Pima County Sheriff's Department, and search bodies of water throughout the city.
In addition to Lakeside Park, investigators searched Reid Park Lake, Kennedy Park, and Columbus Park. Pacheco said special underwater sonar belonging to the Pima County Sheriff was used to look for evidence, but nothing significant was found in any of the water searches.
KVOA was at the media briefing and asked Pacheco if investigators were more confident today, on day 7 of the search, than they were on day 1.
According to Pacheco, "a tremendous amount of information" has been generated in the last 7 days. He said based on the leads, law enforcement has made quite a bit of progress but it takes time to go through it all.
"I know that it's frustrating, but believe us, we continue to do everything to bring back Isabel and I would say progress remains steady and consistent."
Pacheco also discussed the involvement of law enforcement from across the border in this investigation and said TPD is working with U.S. Marshals who in turn are working with Mexican authorities.
Mexican law enforcement is checking hotels, restaurants, and bus terminals looking for Isabel, and pictures of Isabel are being shown in those areas.
Pacheco would not go into detail on some of the rumored aspects of the investigation including whether or not family members had been administered a polygraph test.
Rather he reminded that law enforcement has several resources and assets and they are using all of them. And regarding the polygraph test specifically, he told the press: "I will just stop short of confirming that we have done that."
And more than once Pacheco made a request to parents who were in Freedom Park last Friday evening. He asked that anyone who took taken photos or videos, to please come forward and show them to police. Pacheco said there are not video cameras in place at parks so parents who may have snapped or recorded anything should come forward, even if they don't think they captured anything important.
Isabel was at that ballpark watching a game with her family last Friday evening. She was reported missing the next morning. The next hearing is at 6 P.M.
