Ships Using Sonar in New Search for Natalee Holloway

APRIL 20, 2006 - Posted at 7:47 a.m. CST

 

ORANJESTAD, ARUBA (AP) - The family of a 19-year-old arrested in the case of a young Alabama woman who went missing last year while visiting Aruba says he had nothing to do with her disappearance.  The public prosecutor's office in Aruba said yesterday that the Coast Guard was using sonar and other equipment to check an unspecified area off the Caribbean island in a search for Natalee Holloway of Mountain Brook, Alabama.

The missing girl has several family connections in northeast Arkansas.  Her father, Dave Holloway, is a native of the Bono area and graduate of Westside High School.  She has several other relatives in Jonesboro and Craighead County.

At Oranjestad, Aruba, the family of Geoffrey van Cromvoirt said in a statement released by his lawyers that he is not friends with any of the people previously detained in the Holloway investigation.  Aruban prosecutors, identifying Cromvoirt only by his initials, said he was suspected of criminal offenses that may be related to the disappearance of Holloway but have not provided details about why he was arrested.
