Aruban prosecutors have appealed a judge's decision to release two brothers jailed in the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway.

Twenty-one-year-old Deepak Kalpoe and 18-year-old Satish Kalpoe were freed Monday after a judge decided there was insufficient evidence to hold them in connection with Holloway's disappearance.

The Mountain Brook teen has been missing since May 30th. She vanished while on a five-day vacation with 124 other students.

Seventeen-year-old Joran van der Sloot remains in custody in connection with the case.

The prosecutor's office says lawyers for van der Sloot have appealed the order holding him for an additional 60 days.

Although the brothers are free, they could still face indictment until they're formally notified that no charges will be brought. They haven't granted interviews.

Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, has asked nations not to grant asylum to the brothers. She says they're guilty of a violent crime against her daughter.
