A volunteer Texas rescue group has postponed until Friday a trip to Aruba to help search for a missing U.S. teenager because of delays in getting permits for their search dogs, a group member said Wednesday.
Texas EquuSearch has a verbal agreement from Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber to bring three dogs in, but on Wednesday was still waiting for the official papers, said Joe Huston, a volunteer diver for the group.
Holloway’s uncle, Paul Reynolds, who lives in Houston, asked for the Texas search group’s help because the family was frustrated that three weeks of searches on the island had turned up nothing.
Let’s just hope that someone within the Aruban government cuts through the red tape and expedites the permits for the Texas EquuSearch. The more searching for Natalee the better and sooner rather than later.
