Aruban police searching for body missing Frederick woman

ORANJESTAD, Aruba — Aruban authorities have launched a new search for the remains of a missing Frederick woman or evidence against her detained travel companion.

Search teams can be seen fanning out in the northeast of the Dutch Caribbean island. Previous efforts focused in the south, near where Maryland businessman Gary Giordano says Robyn Gardner disappeared while snorkeling.

It isn’t clear if Aruban authorities will search other parts of the island Monday. Solicitor General Taco Stein earlier said authorities hope to find Gardner’s body or evidence to help build a case against Giordano.

Giordano has been detained on suspicion of involvement in the presumed death of the 35-year-old woman from Maryland. He has denied wrongdoing.
