ORANJESTAD, Aruba - The father of a Dutch suspect arrested in the disappearance of an Alabama honors student in Aruba has been freed from jail.

No immediate comment was available from officials about the release of 52-year-old Paul van der Sloot, a high-ranking justice official who is studying to be a judge on the Dutch Caribbean island.

His wife, Anita van der Sloot, says the most important thing for her now "is that my son comes (out) free."

Paul van der Sloot was arrested Thursday as a suspect for collaborating in a crime with his son, his lawyer says.
