Isabel Celis disappeared from her bedroom and today the Tucson community came together to remember
Isabel Mercedes Celis
TUCSON, AZ - Gone, but not forgotten. That's the message a Tucson family wanted to send today.
Exactly one year ago, Isabel Celis disappeared from her bedroom and the 7-year-old hasn't been seen since.
But even after a year, her family hasn't given up hope.
Friends and family released 365 balloons on Sunday representing the 365 days since the disappearance of the little girl.
They're a family that's relying on prayer, the community and each other. But each day it's a struggle to stay strong.
"We can't be broken when she gets home, we need to be strong for her," her parents said.
They have a lot of help.
Today the Tucson community came together for Sunday Mass to pray for Isabel's family.
There was also a special event focusing on safety.
Isabel's family said today was all about keeping hope alive.
They also said there's a new tribute song for their missing daughter and all the proceeds from the song will go to a reward to help find Isabel.
