Aruba probes insurance in missing tourist case

ORANJESTAD, Aruba - An Aruban prosecutor says a Maryland tourist had a travel insurance policy that covered a companion who has been missing on the island for more than two weeks.

Solicitor General Taco Stein tells The Associated Press that prosecutors are still studying the policy and do not yet know if it has any relevance to their investigation into the presumed death of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner, of Frederick, Maryland.

Stein says that 50-year-old Gary Giordano confirmed to investigators that he had travel insurance. Stein says the policy covered both travelers, but that it wasn't clear whether it covered Gardner's accidental death. Nor was it clear who was the beneficiary.

Giordano remained jailed Wednesday as a suspect in Gardner's presumed death.
