Police investigating the disappearance of an Alabama teenager in Aruba said late last night that one of three young men in custody has admitted "something bad happened" to her during her island visit.
Deputy Police Commissioner Gerold Dompig told The Associated Press that the man was leading police to the scene. He refused to identify which of the three young men who took her to a beach the night she disappeared made the statement.
Eighteen-year-old Natalee Holloway vanished on May 30th during a five-day trip to the Caribbean island with 124 classmates and seven chaperones celebrating their graduation from Mountain Brook High School, near Birmingham. Police found her U-S passport and packed
bags in her hotel room.
A relative says her family continues to believe she is alive.
Three men -- two brothers from Suriname and a 17-year-old Dutch student -- were arrested Thursday. Two former hotel security guards
were also being held in the case. None of the five has been charged.
