Missing Tucson Girl And Fbi Dogs

Missing Tucson Girl And Fbi Dogs, Dogs trained in urban searches arrived this weekend from the FBI’s Virginia headquarters to help investigators working on the disappearance of a six-year-old girl.
Law enforcement officers are trying to determine if Isabel Mercedes Celis was abducted from her Tuscon home.
Two days of searching by scores of police and officers from several agencies failed to locate the first-grader, who police said was last seen by her family in her bedroom at 11 p.m. Friday. When she was discovered missing at 8 a.m. Saturday, they called police.
The dogs arrived from FBI headquarters late Sunday and began searching at the home around midnight, said police Sgt. Marco Borboa.
“We have deployed the dogs and they’re working at the residence,” he said Monday.
Officers kept the whole neighborhood block where Isabel lives cordoned off for a second day Sunday.
More than 150 law enforcement officers were involved in the effort, which included a fourth search of a three-mile radius around the home in temperatures that reached the high-90s, police Lt. Fabian Pacheco said at a Sunday evening news conference.
He said the search was being scaled back during the overnight hours, but did not provide any numbers.
Investigators found “suspicious circumstances around a possible entry point” at the home police, Sgt. Maria Hawke said. But she wouldn’t comment on whether the entry point was a bedroom window or a door.
Family friend Mary Littlehorn said she heard from others close to the family that a window screen in the girl’s bedroom had been knocked down.
