Tucson police are searching for a little girl who disappeared from an east-side home Saturday morning.

Isabel Mercedes Celis disappeared from a home in the 5700 block of East 12th Street, police said.

Isabel was last seen Friday night at about 11 p.m. when her parents put her to bed, said Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson police spokeswoman.

The parents found out the girl was missing at about 8 a.m. when they went to wake her up, Hawke said.

Isabel is 6 years old, 44 inches tall and weighs 44 pounds, Tucson Police said. She has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Scores of police officers scoured the neighborhood throughout the afternoon, checking cars that entered the neighborhood and handing out fliers with the girl’s photograph.

Tucson police also received assistance from the U.S. Marshals, FBI and Arizona Department of Corrections, who used bloodhounds to trace the girl’s scent.

Police officers were trying to determine if the girl was abducted or if she walked away during the night, Hawke said.

Anyone who sees her or has any information is asked to call 911.
