FBI K-9 dogs hit on items around the southern Arizona home of a missing 6-year-old girl on Monday, prompting authorities to take over the house, a police chief said.
Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villasenor said Monday night that the “specialized K-9s (were) flown in” to help in the case of young Isabel Mercedes Celis, who was reported missing on Saturday morning. The dogs “did alert on some things that caused us to go back” to the house, said the chief.
While they’ve described her disappearance as suspicious, local authorities have not identified any suspects in Isabel’s case nor have they indicated what they believe may have happened to her.
They have launched an extensive search in a 3-mile radius of the girl’s home, where she lives with her parents and two older brothers, as well as contacted all registered sex offenders living nearby.
Search for Arizona girl, 6, turns back to her Tucson home.
