Isabel Celis' father barred from seeing sons?

Report: Isa's dad barred from seeing kids

Report: Isa's dad barred from seeing kids

It appears the father of missing Arizona girl Isabel Celis can no longer have contact with his two sons. Over the weekend, Tucson Police told HLN affiliate KGUN that Isabel's parents, Sergio and Rebecca, were separated at the order of Child Protective Services. 

Police would only confirm the separation and that one parent is banned from contact with Isabel's older brothers. However, Rebecca appears to still have contact with the children. On Sunday, KGUN spotted Isabel's mom with the boys in tow.

Rebecca told the affiliate Sunday that despite the hole in her family, she tried to have a normal Mother's day, taking the boys to church and spending time with them. She says the holiday is no more difficult than any other day since Isabel's disappearance more than three weeks ago.

"The longing for her to come around the corner," Celis told KGUN. "That's what's hard. But that's everyday. It's nothing different today than yesterday."

Isabel disappeared last month from her bedroom. Her parents have been largely silent on the disappearance, having minimal media contact and refusing to discuss their polygraph tests.

Police are planning a 6 p.m. ET press conference Monday with more details on the investigation.
