Family of 6-year-old girl who disappeared from Arizona home to speak to media
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ' The family of a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her home in Tucson, Ariz. plans to speak to media for the first time.
Tucson police says the family of Isabel Mercedes Celis will make comments but not take any questions Wednesday afternoon.
Isabel's family has only issued one written statement since her disappearance, to thank volunteers for their support.
The first-grader was last seen in her room by her family Friday night.
Despite police scaling back their search and number of personnel this week, Police Chief Roberto Villasenor says he still hopes to find Isabel alive. The FBI has brought in specially trained profilers to help.
Police consider the case a suspicious disappearance and possible abduction.
