The three young men detained in the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway went before a judge in Aruba Monday.
The judge was to decide whether to extend their detention another 60 days.
On Sunday, authorities investigating the disappearance took each of three young men out separately to various locations on the island. Aruba’s attorney general said the trips were a way to continue checking the suspects’ stories and to gather new information.
The three detainees — the 17-year-old son of a top justice official on the island and two brothers from Surinam — were arrested on June 9.
Holloway has been missing for five weeks.
