Arizona police are still searching for a little girl who disappeared from her Tucson home more than three weeks ago. A Bay Area recording studio is lending a hand.

Police in Tucson say they are scaling back the two-week-old search for Isabel Celis, who they believe was abducted. But friends of friends in the music business from Tucson to Oakland have gotten together to help find Celis. The finishing touches are being made to a song music producers hope will help.

Six-year-old Celis has been missing since April 20. Her parents say they found the window to her bedroom open and a screen pushed aside when they went to check on her.

Music producers at Oakland's Pajama Recording Studios have made a professional mix of a video made by Arizona musicians and artists in order to cut a CDthat will be sold to raise funds to help find Celis.

James Gardiner and Nomi Yah have donated the mix and studio time.

"I was heartbroken about Sierra LaMar, who is our local girl were still looking for, so when the case came from Arizona, it felt close to home," Yah said.

Pajama Recording Studios manager Paula Telander hopes that the music and video finds Celis' suspected abductors.

"We hope that this will find the hearts of these captors and that she will be returned safe and sound," Telander said.

Pajama Recording Studios and the Arizona artists hope to raise tens of thousands of dollars through the sale of a DVD. It goes on sale next week.
