The mother of the missing Alabama teenager in Aruba says she thinks even more people could be arrested in the case.

Police on the island say a fourth person has been detained in connection with the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway.
And her mother says that's "just the beginning."

Beth Holloway Twitty told Associated Press Television News she is increasingly unhappy with the lack of progress in the investigation.

Her daughter has been missing since the early morning hours of May 30th.

Holloway Twitty says "I want my daughter and I want her now."

The fourth suspect detained in Holloway's disappearance was identified by the attorney general's office only as a 26-year-old with the initials S.G.C. The office did not disclose any more details.

Authorities in Aruba say a fourth person was arrested today in the case of a missing Alabama student.

A statement from the Aruban attorney general's office said the person is suspected of being involved in the disappearance of the tourist -- 18-year-old Natalee Holloway of Mountain Brook.

The statement said the newest detainee was born on July 21st, 1978, and has the initials S.G.C. No other information was released.

Meanwhile, an Aruban judge today could decide whether one of three suspects already detained in the case can get a visit from his father. The judge is also considering whether the teen's attorneys can see any of the evidence gathered so far in the Holloway case.

More than two weeks of searches have turned up no clues, and no
one's been formally charged in the case.

A helicopter flyover in Aruba has failed to turn up any sign of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway.

An official wouldn't say exactly where the helicopter searched. It was described as a search for "possible remains."

An Aruban judge could decide today whether one of three suspects being detained in the case can get a visit from his father. The judge is also considering whether the teen's attorneys can see any of the evidence gathered so far in the Holloway case.

The three were with the Mountain Brook teenager the night she disappeared May 30.

More than two weeks of searches by police, volunteers and tourists have turned up nothing, and no one's been formally charged in the case.
