A 17-year-old Aruban must remain in custody as authorities investigate the disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway.

An Aruban appeals court announced that decision today.

The court also found that there is not enough evidence to detain two brothers from Surinam in Holloway's disappearance.

At a closed hearing, a judge yesterday heard the appeals from a defense lawyer seeking the release of Joran van der Sloot, and from
prosecutors asking for the re-arrest of the Surinamese brothers, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe.

Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers were among the last people to see the Mountain Brook High School graduate before she vanished May 30th -- the final night of her high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.

Another court ordered the release of the brothers on July Fourth.

Van der Sloot is the son of a judge in training on the island. He's been in custody since June Ninth, when he was arrested along with the brothers. He has not been charged.
