#McCann Case : #IsabelCelis - Accidental Death/Cover-Up.

Statement Analysis

"We love Isabel and will never give up finding her."

When someone tells us they will never stop searching, it causes us to wonder why they feel the search will never end.  Better to say they will search until they find her. Here, they seem to indicate that they will never have success. 

OJ Simpson once said that he would spend the rest of his life searching for Nicole's killer.  He anticipated no success.  

Parents of missing children, particularly early on, are not only in denial, but believe that their child is alive and will be found, even if police have indicated otherwise.  It is unusual to not hear optimism, just as it is unusual that the parents have not gone public. 
Tucson police are trying to determine what happened to Isabel. Her parents say they awoke on Saturday to find her missing. Police said a window was open with the screen pushed aside.
Since Saturday, investigators and volunteers fanned across Isabel's neighborhood and an area landfill searching for clues. Volunteers posted fliers with a photo of Isabel — about 4 feet tall with brown hair and hazel eyes — holding a school award.
Her parents, identified by friends as Becky and Sergio Celis, told investigators they last saw the first-grader at 11 p.m. Friday. Her mother, a nurse, was at work Saturday when her father went to wake her at 8 a.m. and discovered her missing, police said.
Police call the case a "suspicious disappearance/possible abduction."
"We're not ruling anything out of the investigation at this point because we really need to keep our mind open about all the information that's been brought to us," Police Chief Roberto Villasenor said.

Sensitivity noted.  This is why there appears to be a subtle shift from abduction to investigation at the home. 
Officers have been interviewing sex offenders in the area — a practice that has become standard in all abduction investigations.
On Monday, FBI dogs — one that can find human remains and the other used for search and rescue — went through the family's home and turned up information that required a follow-up, but police declined to say what that was.
The family said in the statement that they are fully cooperating with authorities.
Experts say abduction from the home is relatively rare, with just over 18 children taken each year.
"It's unusual, but it's not unprecedented," said Ernie Allen, president of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which is involved in the search.
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 more
