FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The family of missing 9-year-old Diana Alvarez plans to issue an update on the case Tuesday morning.

The little girl has now been missing for nearly a month and a half, and at 11:30 a.m., the lawyer representing the Alvarez family tells Fox 4 there will be a press conference regarding Diana's case.

UPDATE: Family of Diana Alvarez pleads for new leads in girl's disappearance

Diana went missing on May 29th from her San Carlos Park home.

The family held a press conference last month, upset with the Lee County Sheriff's Office waiting 3 days before an Amber Alert was issued. 

Earlier this month the key person of interest in the case pled not-guilty to federal child porn charges, unrelated to the case.

Diana's parents say they found it suspicious how he acted in court and even right after Diana disappeared.  "I feel like he has something to do with this because he wouldn't look me in the face," said Diana's mother, through an interpreter.

"Why he don't want to speak with cops on the first day, why he don't want to speak with us the first day that we called him?" asked Diana's father.

If Guerrero's found guilty on child pornography charges, he could face up to 30 years in prison.

We will bring you the latest details this morning from the press conference on Facebook and on our website.
