A volunteer group searching for a missing Alabama teenager dug through a landfill in Aruba for a third day today (Sunday) but found no clues.

The search resumes tomorrow.

An Aruban man said he was at the landfill dropping off trash when he saw men dump and cover the body of a blonde female, two days after Natalee Holloway disappeared.

Police spokesman Edwin Comenencia said police searched the landfill after receiving the tip days after Holloway's disappearance May 30th, but found nothing.

He said the witness recently approached Holloway's family, who asked for another search.

The teen's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, left Aruba for the first time since arriving to the Dutch Caribbean island soon after her daughter went missing May 30th.

Paul Reynolds, the missing teen's uncle, says Holloway Twitty and her husband left Friday and returned home to Birmingham.

Reynolds says she intends to return very soon and keep this investigation alive.

Joran van der Sloot, a 17-year-old who has admitted spending time with Holloway the evening of May 30th but denied having anything to do with her disappearance, is the only person detained as a suspect. No one has been charged.
