Two sisters have been arrested after calling 911 and pretending to be 6-year-old Isabel Celis, who has been missing from her Tucson home for three months.
The Tucson Police Department received a 911 call after 9 a.m. from a young female claiming to be Isabel. She was calling from a cell phone, stated she had been kidnapped and hung up.
The call was traced to the 7200 block of East Pierce Place and more than 25 officers responded.
Their investigation led them to an apartment complex in the 1300 block of South Kolb Road.
Officers made contact at an apartment with two the girls, ages 9 and 11. They admitted to making the phone call as a prank, police said.
The girls' mother was at the apartment but unaware that the phone call had been made to 911.
Both girls were arrested for one count of false reporting to a law enforcement agency and booked into the Pima County Juvenile Detention Center.
Police would not release their names.
