Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. — Police in Tucson, Ariz., say they're checking bodies of water near the home of a missing 6-year-old girl for any signs of her.

Officers aren't going into the water and no dive teams have been called in. Police say it's just a visual search around the lake at Charles Ford/Lakeside Park and several retention basins.

Meanwhile, a neighbor says she heard noises the morning of Isabel Celis' disappearance.

Alicia Stardevant tells KVOA-TV she heard her dogs barking and male voices outside her bedroom window at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday. She says there were no sounds that indicated a struggle.

Isabel's parents say they last saw her in her bedroom Friday night and they awoke Saturday to find her missing. Police say a window was open with the screen pushed aside.
