Missing Tucson girl's dad in court Thursday

Posted: Updated:

It's day six in the search for missing Isabel Celis, and there's still no sign of her. But her father, Sergio Celis, showed up at Tucson City Court this morning.

He walked on past cameras and ignored questions.

"He attended Tucson City Court on a matter that's related to animal violations, dog violations, I believe one of those dogs running at large, the other a vaccination violation," said Tucson police Lt. Fabian Pacheco.

Sergio Celis will have to reappear in court next month. In a statement from the family Wednesday, Rebecca Celis hopes the search for her daughter remains top priority.

"We don't want the focus to be taken off Isabel by us appearing in front of the cameras," she said.

Tucson police say investigators are still following up on leads and checking on some places several times.

"There are some homes' locations, business, any area that we're not 100 percent comfortable, that perhaps we need to go back and revisit, we're certainly going to do that," said Pacheco.

Officials say the family has been cooperating with investigators. Police say they're still working with the FBI.  At this time, police are still not ruling out anyone as a possible suspect.
