TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Prosecutors are expected to decide this week whether to file charges against two sisters who police say called them claiming to be a missing Arizona girl.
The 9-year-old and 11-year-old girls were arrested over the weekend on suspicion of false reporting to authorities.
The Arizona Daily Star (http://bit.ly/LHv5Po ) reports the girls were taken to the Pima County juvenile jail. But officials say they didn't meet the court's criteria for detention.
Tucson police Sgt. Chris Widmer says 25 officers responded to the call Sunday morning from a girl reporting to be 6-year-old Isabel Mercedes Celis of Tucson, who has been missing since April 21.
Investigators traced the call to the girls' home. Police say the sisters admitted making the call, though it's unclear which of the two actually did.
