Search Continues for Missing Alabama Teen with Region 8 Ties

As the search continues in Aruba for an Alabama High school student, police are investigating the story of three men who say they dropped her off at her hotel.

Natalee Holloway's Uncle says security cameras didn't show her returning.

A Deputy Police Chief is calling the men their "most important lead".

He describes them as "persons of interest''.

An official close to the investigation says the men told Police they had taken the teen to a beach, then to her hotel.

Natalee's parents say they are not leaving Aruba without her.

The family is offering a $50,000 dollar reward to anyone who delivers her safely to a Police station or hospital.

Holloway has ties to Region 8.

Her father is originally from Bono, and her Aunt and Uncle still live in the area.
