Aruba Missing Girl

By  | 

Residents in Aruba say two men arrested in connection with the disappearance of an Alabama teen-ager were security guards for a hotel near where the girl was staying.

Natalee Holloway of Birmingham vanished a week ago during a graduation trip.

The island's attorney general says "the charges have a relationship with the disappearance" but he would not elaborate. He says the pair will appear before a judge by tomorrow.

The two were arrested at their homes yesterday. And, neighbors described them as security guards for a hotel closed for renovation near the teen's hotel.

Police say they have not ruled out the possibility other people were involved in her disappearance. And the police chief adds: "We hope she's alive."
