One of the men sought by police in the case of missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis came forward Saturday. The man is not a suspect, but police think him and a group of four others may have information that could lead to finding Isabel.

On Friday, the Tucson Police Department has received a tip that a group of up to five people, including two males and three females, may have information that could lead to a break in the case involving missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis.

According police spokeswoman Maria Hawke, it is believed that the group was walking in an eastbound direction along the northern side of Saint Joseph's Catholic Church, located at 215 South Craycroft, between 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 21.

Hawke said they were walking in the direction of, or directly to East Cooper Street. At that time of the early morning, the group may have been leaving the area of the Cactus Moon Nightclub or Risky Business Restaurant and Bar, located on E. Broadway Boulevard.

The Tucson Police Department urges the members of the group to call 911 as soon as possible.

Isabel was last seen wearing a blue tank top, and blue shorts. She is missing a tooth on the top and the bottom.

She was last seen on Friday, April 20 at 11 p.m.

Police have not ruled the case of the missing first grader as an abduction, but they are calling it "suspicious."
