Tucson police searched four Tucson-area park lakes, finding no clues in the disappearance of Isabel Mercedes Celis who was reported missing from her midtown home Saturday morning.

The search Thursday evening of the body of water at Lakeside Park, near South Pantano and East Escalante roads, was prompted by a tip, Lt. Fabian Pacheco said at a news conference this  morning.

After searching Lakeside, investigators decided to check lakes at three other Tucson-area parks: Kennedy, near West Ajo Way and South La Cholla Boulevard; Christopher Columbus, on North Silverbell Road near West Sweetwater Drive; and Reid, near East 22nd Street and South Country Club Road. No clues were found, Pacheco said.

Meanwhile, police are asking anyone with video of activities at Freedom Park friday night to contact investigators. Isabel was at Freedom park on East Golf Links near South Swan Road that evening for her brother’s baseball game, police said.

Anyone with video or tips about Isabel’s case can call 88-CRIME.

Police have scheduled another news conference on the case at 6 p.m.
