We'll tell escorted back in session on the docket today a new plea for help from the parents of a little girl missing for almost a week now.
Six year old -- -- -- police was last seen going to sleep in her Tucson Arizona home.
This past Friday night.
Her father reported her missing the next morning when he said he went -- better -- Indiana she was not there.
Since then a searches turned up nothing and police are said to be scaling back their efforts.
Is -- -- parents offering increased the reward right now to 6000 dollars for information leading to their daughter's return.
Yeah we are cooperating to the fullest extent.
With the investigation.
We are increasing their large.
Don't leave it to -- person or persons.
Who have these seven.
Tell us your demands.
Tell us what you want to.
We will do anything for her.
We are looking for we're looking for you he's.
We love you.
-- she's so much.
-- never give up.
We will never give up looking for you.
Other award is said to have gone up to 30000 dollars what can be done to find this little girl.
Joining me now mark -- a former LAPD homicide detective in a Fox News contributor.
And mark my gosh who is a defense attorney and onetime prosecutor gentlemen thank -- both so much for being here so.
They are saying that they have no suspects in the case including the parents you always look at the parents you.
-- viewers know that by now guilty or not guilty got to start there.
But they're saying they're being very cooperative but mark it appears.
That they may be at a leads.
I hope not million my -- I got -- double marks and I my apologies mark -- -- was for you.
-- -- you know in this kind of -- case it's pretty rare.
Children are missing every year but -- most of those are connected to some type of custody.
Neighbor friend family member and only about a 115.
Are actually abducted by strangers but only about eighteen.
Were abducted from their -- so this is incredibly rare that's the that's the beginning.
And the police do have either a point of entry or -- point of exit from the child's room so.
That's word all sinners and I think that's where it's all going back to after the search for anything outside of the home they're going back to -- home.
Mark obviously a crime has been committed here it it would appear I mean it doesn't mean it doesn't seem like little Isabelle just got up and walked off.
I guess that's still a possibility.
-- as a DA do you go in there preserve evidence make sure that nothing's botched as we believe it has been another investigation.
Well looks like they've done a good job they kept the family out of the home until they get a sufficient sufficient shares search.
They've also questioned apparently fifteen.
Of these sexual offenders to live within a three mile radius of the home apparently there's one right in the vicinity.
I would take at face value anything of those people say since I consider those to be potential suspects there's also some video that I think they've secured.
Within 75 yards of the home allegedly showcasing the home but what might have happened during relevant time period.
You preserve all those things you analyze it you go back to and hopefully hopefully something comes through.
Mark -- -- what I mean how do you figure out whether somebody did indeed snatch this girl is similar to the baby Lisa case it appears a screen was messed with.
In little Isabelle is room but there are no eyewitnesses.
The the woman next door says she heard some things some men talking outside the dogs were going nuts that might -- not mean anything -- for.
Well it it could but we have to remember that this is unoccupied home -- you have a man and wife this is an actual trial the wife is a nurse she's at work by 8 o'clock won the child -- Is not in her room by the husband discovered not in -- room.
So that means that the wife is up at certain points maybe you as latest 7 o'clock maybe as early as 6 o'clock so.
That could mean nothing but news it would even mean that the suspect is more sloppy more amateur issued -- even on face value and you have to look at sex offenders.
Sex offenders are serial criminal they have an ammo and ammo that they repeat an -- that they do not want to be caught.
This is the best way to get caught an -- occupied home.
Whether you know it or not you know six year old doesn't live there by -- himself and that point -- trigger point of exit.
Should have Trace evidence or some type of evidence below the window where somebody stood.
We should -- it's a male female issue size there should be disturbance in the dirt there should be Trace evidence or should be some evidence.
In that room and if there is not.
That is cause for investigate -- alarm and re addressed you know -- one last thing megabit but I certainly hope and I'm sure it happened.
That all of the individuals in that home were interviewed individually.
-- -- and those state.
Mark -- -- -- I want as they say to parents are not suspects does that tell us anything.
Well I certainly hope that they're being honest and truthful because it would be really sad to think that the parents are involved I would polygraph -- has their attorney.
Just to make sure because they can say that they're not suspect the people are still looking at them.
And hoping that maybe there might have been some involvement because they don't want to think that there's somebody in their neighborhood potentially that could be doing right.
There's two older boys in the home -- they'll also be interviewed.
One would presume mark -- mark -- -- thank you both so much we'll be right back thanks.
