TUCSON, Ariz. (AP/KGUN9-TV) - Police are reporting no breakthroughs in the ninth day of the search for a missing 6-year-old Tucson girl.
Tucson police spokesman Lt. Fabian Pacheco says dozens of tips are being investigated for the one that may break the case, this weekend detectives were able to review the lead sheets.

Pacheco says authorities have also followed up on tips coming from the border area.

The ground search for Isabel Celis is essentially complete. A three-square-mile area around her home was canvassed three times and area ponds, dry streambeds and empty houses repeatedly searched.
The girl's parents reported her missing last Saturday morning, saying they last saw her in her room the night before.
Pacheco said at a Sunday afternoon press briefing that one of five people captured in a video walking on a nearby street the night Isabel was last seen has called them, authorities have spoke with him. Detectives are looking to identify the others captured in the video and ask them if they saw anything unusual.
