New Search Begins

 

A new search is under way for an Alabama teen missing for more than two weeks in Aruba. Police have cordoned off several blocks around a Marriott hotel, which is not far from the hotel where Natalee Holloway was staying.

A government spokesman says the new search may have been the result of information given by a man who had been detained, but has now been released. The man told police one of three men still in custody has lied to police about what happened to Holloway.

The released prisoner -- a former hotel security guard -- tells police that 18-year-old Satish Kalpoe told him in prison that he and his brother dropped off the girl and a Dutch teen near the Marriott the day she disappeared. The group had earlier told officers they had taken the girl back to her hotel.
