Wearing shirts that said, "bring Isa home," the parents of the missing 6-year-old Tucson girl held the first press conference since Isabel Celis disappeared on Saturday.

With tears, Isabel's mother Becky Celis begged for the focus to remain on finding her daughter, who was put to bed around 11 p.m. Friday night, and found missing around 8 a.m. Saturday morning.

Becky thanked the community, and the millions who have volunteered and shown support i the efforts to bring Isabel home.

Sergio Celis, Isabel's father, said no matter what they will never stop looking for their daughter.

"We are cooperating to the fullest extent," he said in a speech read in both English and Spanish. "To the person, or persons who have Isabel, tell us what you want."

Isabel has been missing for 5 days, and a $6,000 reward is being offered for her safe return.

Tucson police say the investigation is not a recovery effort, that they believe Isabel can still be found alive.

Anyone with information is urged to call 88-CRIME.
