Isabel Celis' Disappearance Gets More Bizarre With 'Suspicious' Activity at Her House (VIDEO)

This Just In 54

Isabel celisThe latest news on Isabel Celis has just added another layer of confusion to the already mysterious case of the missing 6-year-old. The screen in the window of the bedroom where the little girl was last seen Friday night was knocked out. And what's been described as a "suspicious hit" picked up by an FBI search dog has been deemed significant enough to turn the Celis home into a crime scene. Now for the confusing part: police say that doesn't mean Becky and Sergio Celis are to blame for their daughter's disappearance ... but it doesn't mean they aren't to blame either.

Wait, whaaaaat? Are you confused too? You have to wonder if the Tucson Police Department isn't hedging their bets here. 

Tucson News is reporting they've actually allowed the Celis family -- including Isabel's brothers -- back into their home. Already. Kind of odd, considering just yesterday they kicked them out because it was a crime scene, huh? Not to mention they're refusing to say that this was an abduction by an unknown subject even though they can't say for certain whether or not Isabel left her house on her own two feet before Sergio went to wake her up at 8 a.m.?

If I were a cop, I'd probably keep the crime scene locked down. But that's just it. I'm not a cop. I don't know why they do what they do.

Maybe they're still building a case here, or maybe, just maybe these parents really are the victims here. It may sounds sadistic to say it, but I hope it's the latter.

Any time these missing kid cases crop up in the media, the conspiracy theories begin floating around, and 9 times out of 10, people start pointing fingers at the family. Usually these complaints come from armchair psychologists, regular moms and dads who think a few episodes of Law & Order: SVU and Criminal Minds under their belts make them experts. But we can't ignore that there are reasons these TV shows portray plenty of parents as bad guys. The statistics tell us that kids are much more likely to be kidnapped or hurt by a family member -- as much as 49 percent of kidnappings are done by relatives. When we first started talking about the facts surrounding Isabel's disappearance here on The Stir, we had plenty of parents reminding us of just that, and pondering whether little Isa's parents were involved.

And yet, as a parent, I can't bring myself to think of it that way. I can't think about the kind of people who would hurt their own child; especially in the case of little Isabel who is my own daughter's age. I want to think that the Celis' statement to the media -- that they will never stop searching for their daughter -- is the God's honest truth.

I don't like to think about the fact that their daughter is missing, but she already is. We can't go back and erase that. Now we have to move forward. And if her parents can be cleared of suspicion, that's, well, it's probably the "best" outcome of this ... besides the obvious "best" of finding little Isabel Celis alive.

Where does your mind go when you hear about missing kids? Abduction? The parents?

I usually like to hear backstory before making any accusations.  I have decided that Ayers dad killed her.  Lisa Irwin was kidnapped by a wealthy lesbian couple who paid someone to take her.  :)

When the child goes missing from their room, yes, I'll admit I think of the parents first. Like you said, most cases of abduction are by known family members. Lately though, it seems like many parents are staging abduction to cover their tracks.

Yes most abductions are family members but stranger abductions aren't completely unheard of. Polly Klaas, Jessica Lunsford, Elizabeth Smart-kidnapped from their rooms in the night by non-relatives. It is extremely rare. The family home is now a crime scene, there were 2 dogs brought in to check the house, 1 cadaver dog and 1 tracking dog. It was stated that one of the dogs "hit" on something in the house, but the authorities are not saying which dog. As the days go one the hope of a positive outcome definitely are waning. This whole situation makes me sick and sad.

I don't know about anyone else but I am a mother of 8 and I wouldn't be home or making press conferences. I would be out looking for my child and banging on every door surrounding my home. I wouldn't have or make time to give statements to the media. Everyone knows that when a child is abducted, they are usually dead within the first 3 days.

Tucson police department are absolutely horrible. My sister was murdered in 2002, the police Tucson PD did not do a crime scene because the guy who shot her shot himself, they did not think he would survive. He sat in the hospital with bags on his hands to preserve evidence of the shpooting.....they did not want to spend the money to get a specialist in to do the gun residue tests on his my opinion they are completely incompetant...oh, and he did survive....if they were ever able to make the charges stick, they had no evidence anyway..they didn;t bother to do a thorough crime scene.....He is currently enjoying his life in another state....

In this day and age I am sad to say that when I hear of a missing child, my mind goes to the parents and I think the worst. I am usually right 85% or more. It is so sad that this happens to these poor children. If you don't want them give them to someone that does..Stop all the killing and abuse! just saying.

They have to look at the parents first. God forbid if they did do it. I don't even think I could hurt a stranger unless they were hurting one of my kids, then I'm going for blood!!!!!

I hope that she is found soon and that she is ok. My heart does not go out to the family because first of all that window should have been locked and closed at night, two i'm sure the little girl probly tryed screaming and even if not dont most parents keep the kids doors opened a crack at night just in case, so that way in case they do wake up from a bad dream or something or in this case if a jerk off has enough balls and trys to open a window wouldnt someone in the house have heard it? I really wish the cops were a bit more questionable and reasonable sometimes, i mean really people stop and think.
