edmond of Top95: – American in Aruba commenting live.
Marriott at this moment they have made the search area larger…nothign yet….dont know if it based upon a confession or just a random search…….police has moved EVERYONE to the Marriott hotel not allowed to be close…they have seen the technical team (TOD) and the FBI that indicates that their is something but what no one knows….all press is being moved away front he area……their is an indication that they don’t want anyone to see what is happening and that maybe they found something and don’t want the press tehir…that is all they have to say…everythign indicates that they may have found something…all local and Int’l press is being moved away from the area.
Barricades are put everywhere… “my typing is bad because I’m going as fast as I can”!!
They moved press far far away….they are closing off everywhere so the police can make the investigation…..another team has arrived…police…in blue coveralls…they dont know who they are….alto of police force to close off the place closing with yellow “no trespassing” tape…their is no access to the MAIN search area….they dont know if a body was found yet but unfortunately they thin that is the case…….THEIR INTERVIEWING SOME ON NOW:
he was their in the morning early and they saw some “strange” things and the authority immediately took over…i dont know if the guy is in the construction area
In the brushy area to the north of the Marriott the police are doing an intense search. Press and all have been moved far away. Roads are blocked off.
Also in that area there was found earlier in the day a pair of women’s underwear and a number of condoms. However, this is a lovers lane type area. Not sure what to make of this last fact yet.
However, the stories now coming from the arrested group would likely place evidence in this area of the island.
From ABC News, Aruban Police Launch New Search for Teen
Nearly three dozen police officers launched a search Tuesday along a beach near the Marriott Hotel for Natalee Holloway after a former security guard alleged that one of three youths seen with the missing teenager had lied to police.
Antonius “Mickey” John said he was detained in a cell adjacent to one of the young men, 21-year-old Deepak Kalpoe, and that the two spent time talking.
John, 30, said Kalpoe told him that he and his 18-year-old brother, Satish, and their 17-year-old Dutch friend never went back to the Holiday Inn the morning of May 30, the day Holloway disappeared on this Dutch Caribbean island during a student trip.
Kalpoe said they instead dropped the Dutch youth and Holloway off near the Marriott, located just north of the Holiday Inn, on the same beach.
Police cordoned off a three-block area near the Marriott, and government spokesman Ruben Trapenberg confirmed it was yet another search for the 18-year-old from Mountain Brook, Ala., High School.
Update: According to Canal 90, one of the 3 boys told the cops that they burried Natalie at the Fisherman’s Huts and that the FBI has two dogs on the scene.
From Fox News, Aruba Authorities Begin New Search for Clues
ORANJESTAD, Aruba Ã¢â‚¬” Investigators in Aruba began searching Tuesday in an area near the island’s hotel district following a new tip in the mystery surrounding Natalee Holloway.
A boy who found a pair of women’s underpants, used condoms and condom wrappers near a small pond in the Palm Beach area north of the Alabama teenager’s hotel phoned his find in to police.
Authorities said the area was a popular hangout among teens and that the items were nothing unusual, but a dearth of clues to Holloway’s whereabouts was prompting police to follow every lead.
A representative of the Aruban prime minister’s office and the police commissioner were on the scene, yet another indication of how eager the tranquil island paradise is to show the world how seriously it is taking the Alabama teen’s disappearance. Police Chief Jan van Stratten was to speak at a press conference Tuesday afternoon
