The Tucson Police Department said Thursday that information circulating on social media sites about missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis being found in San Diego is false.

Tucson police urge people to use caution when posting such rumors.

Isabel was last seen when she went to bed April 20 at 11 p.m., at the family's home. Sergio Celis, Isabel's father, discovered his daughter missing from her bedroom the following morning. 

Police, who said they consider her disappearance an abduction, have scaled back the investigation and have ended news briefings on the case, said Lt. Fabian Pacheco.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911, 88-CRIME or leave a tip through TPD's new tool that allows people to text anonymous tips or leave them online. Tips also can be made through the Center for Missing & Exploited Children's tip line at (800) THE-LOST, or online through its CyberTipline.
