Police: 'Suspicious circumstances' found at 'entry point' to home of missing Tucson girl
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) ' A police spokeswoman says investigators found "suspicious circumstances around a possible entry point" at the home of a 6-year-old Arizona girl who has gone missing from her Tucson home.
Police Sgt. Maria Hawke wouldn't comment Sunday on whether the entry point was a bedroom window or a door.
However, family friend Mary Littlehorn says she heard from others close to the family that a window screen in the girl's bedroom had been knocked down.
The disappearance of first-grader Isabel Mercedes Celis has prompted a massive search, with more than 150 law enforcement officers trying to figure out whether she has been abducted.
Hawke says the girl's parents say they last saw their daughter in her bedroom at 11 p.m. Friday and discovered her missing at about 8 a.m. Saturday. The parents phoned 911 minutes later.
