TUCSON, Ariz. -- Police have released new information in the disappearance of a missing Tucson girl.

In time for National Missing Children’s Day, Tucson police have released more than 550 pages of documents from their investigation into the disappearance of 6-year-old Isabel Celis. 
Celis was last seen at her home April 20. The documents reveal that police have tracked down more than a thousand tips, garnered information from psychics, and investigated a caller from a phone booth claiming to have Isabel, which turned out to be a hoax.
The 550 pages include reports of dozens of potential sightings of the little girl from across Arizona and the country.
The documents also include information on evidence found in the Celis home, including possible blood stains inside Isabel’s bedroom, footprints, and a hat and shower curtain with reddish brown stains seized from a car parked outside.
The investigation into Isabel’s disappearance began on April 21 when her father, Sergio Celis, called 9-1-1 and reported her missing. 
Since that time, police have not named an official suspect. Their investigation into Isabel’s disappearance remains open.
On National Missing Children’s Day, police urge parents to keep updated, high quality photos of their children, in case they ever turn up missing.
Anyone with information about the disappearance of Isabel Celis is urged to contact the Tucson police department.
