ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Police in Aruba searched a brushy coastal area for seven hours Monday but found no new leads into the case of a Maryland woman who disappeared on the Dutch Caribbean island, a prosecution official said.
The officers combed through the vegetation around Sereoe Colorado for the remains of the missing woman, Robyn Gardner, or anything that might link her travel companion, Gary Giordano, to her disappearance.
Giordano has been detained on suspicion of involvement in the presumed death of the 35-year-old woman from Maryland. He has denied wrongdoing.
The area that was searched is near the southern tip of Aruba, not far from where Giordano, a businessman from Gaithersburg, Maryland, reported that Gardner disappeared while they were snorkeling on August 2nd.
