Alabama Missing Teen in Aruba

By  | 

The government in Aruba is calling on thousands of civil servants and tourists to help look for Natalee Holloway.

The 18-year-old from Birmingham vanished a week ago while on a trip to celebrate her high school graduation.

A police leader says the government is asking most of its public workers to meet at a sports stadium today to get instructions for "a systematic search."

A Pennsylvania tourist who says he's helping in the search says, "It's tough to enjoy paradise when somebody is in trouble."

Officials arrested two men yesterday in the case.

The police commander says officials hope thousands of people will join "a national effort" to find the missing teen.

Police, soldiers and FBI agents have been searching scrubland, beaches and the water.
