TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -- While the focus of the past week has been on the case of missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis, the mysterious disappearance of another Tucsonan has been lingering in the community: Kay Frances Read.

It's been four years since the Sunday schoolteacher vanished from her home on Valentine's Day, leaving her crutches and leg brace, which she needed to walk. Her door shows no signs of forced entry, but her sister believes she would never open the door to a stranger.

So what exactly happened to Kay Read?

Police have collected evidence at her home and distributed surveillance video of perhaps the last person to see Read alive, but the trail has gone cold.

KGUN9 News takes a detailed look at how Read vanished, by talking to her family and reexamining all the pieces of the puzzle, including never-before-seen photos of Read's burned van found miles from her home.

Why does this case continue to baffle detectives? Tune in to find out.
