TUCSON – A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday for a Tucson girl who went missing in April 2012 and whose remains were recently found in a remote area of Pima County.

The outdoor memoriam for Isabel Celis went from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone Ave.

A guest book was available for people to send their thoughts to the Celis family and the public was invited to speak at the downtown event.

The girl disappeared from her family’s midtown home when she was 6 years old.

Tucson police announced Friday that the child’s remains were found last month and positively identified by DNA testing.

Police say the investigation into Isabel’s death is ongoing and they won’t disclose if there are any suspects.
