Aruba police pursue new evidence in Holloway case

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Investigators in Aruba are pursuing new evidence in the 2005 disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway.

The Prosecutors' Office says a new witness claims the only suspect in the case confessed to her that he was involved in dumping Holloway's body at sea.

But prosecutor Hans Mos said Tuesday that more evidence is needed to build a case against Dutch college student Joran van der Sloot.

Investigators reopened the case earlier this year based on similar admissions caught in hidden-camera recordings by a Dutch TV crime show.

The 18-year-old from Mountain Brook, Alabama, was last seen in May 2005 leaving a bar with Van der Sloot on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the Dutch Caribbean island.
