TO GET THIS LITTLE GIRL HOME SAFE!!! PUT THE CRIMINALS AND CHILD PREDATORS BEHIND BARS FOREVER OR AT LEAST ALOT STRONGER SENTENCE!!!!
The names are synonymous with a parent's worst nightmare: a child snatched by a stranger from the safety of her own home.Tucson police are searching for a 6-year-old girl who went missing from her home on the city's east side. Little children with their parents light and hold candles at a vigil in the parking lot near a police command post in Tucson, Ariz., on Sunday, April 23, 2012, in honor of the missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis. The girl's disappearance has prompted a massive search with more than 150 law enforcement officers trying to figure out whether she was abducted, a police spokeswoman said Sunday. Isabel Celis was discovered missing from her home Saturday morning.
**Now, police in Tucson, Ariz., are trying to determine what happened to 6-year-old Isabel Mercedes Celis. Her parents say they awoke on Saturday to find her missing. Police said a window was open with the screen pushed aside.
While officers are investigating all possibilities in her disappearance, experts say, abduction from the home is relatively rare, with just over 18 children taken each year.Each year, 58,000 children are abducted by strangers and released, according to the most recent statistics. Of those, 115 were "stereotypical" kidnappings carried out by strangers who either killed the children or held them for ransom. And 16 percent of those were taken from home.
Nearly three quarters of the victims are girls, and 38 percent of them are 12 to 14. At 24 percent, the second largest victimized group is the one Isabel belongs to: girls ages 6 to 11.In Tucson, the possibility that a kidnapper could be in their midst unnerved some parents.
"Every time a child would disappear, they would invent that wheel all over again," said Klaas, who travels the country speaking about child abduction.
Polly's case served as a model for the FBI's first missing child protocol and also prompted California voters to pass the state's three strikes law, which requires harsh prison sentences for repeat offenders!
