TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police Department wrapped up its special patrols near Broadway and Craycroft two days earlier than planned.

The investigative deployment was launched Wednesday afternoon in hopes of unearthing new evidence in the disappearance of Isabel Celis.  It was originally schedule to continue through Saturday night.

Police say the six year old girl was abducted from her east-side home nearly two years ago.   

For investigative purposes, TPD is not telling us specifically what they found over the last 48 hours.

What they will tell us is that they made contact with most of the 350 to 400 homes they originally intended to.

So now it's just a matter of going over all that new information -- comparing it with the old -- and seeing where it leads them.

From the very beginning, TPD said the special deployment wasn't because of a tip or some suspicion that brought them back to the neighborhood.

Instead they say it was a matter of putting new eyes, new detectives on the case and exposing them to many of the same questions, the same neighbors, even the same lay of the land as the original investigators.

Over the last 48 hours, 40 uniformed officers and eight detectives went door to door, asking people if they've seen anything unusual over the last 19 months.

For instance, anybody who suddenly moved out without explanation; any landscapers who seemed to be hanging around; or anybody else here who just didn't seem quite right.

Again, TPD says they've received dozens of tips as a result of the Celis detail.

That, in itself, is a small victory.

"So what's happening now is the investigators are looking at all those phone calls that came in, the tips they received and they're trying to kind of weed through right now, figure out which of these tips are new tips, new leads...and which of them are things that we already had," says TPD Sgt. Pete Dugan.

"Those new leads will be assigned to detectives for follow up and that's the process that they're in right now."

In addition to tips received in the Celis neighborhood, TPD says they've received tips and phone calls from folks all over the city, even different parts of the state.

Their goal, once again, was to regenerate interest in this case.

If tips are any indication, that's exactly what they did.
