Family of Frederick woman missing in Aruba disappointed

WASHINGTON — A cousin of a woman missing in Aruba since August says the family is “very disappointed” that they are “no closer to finding out what happened” to her even as suspect in her death was expected to be released from jail.

Kelly Reed, a cousin of Robyn Gardner, said made the statement Tuesday in response to the anticipated release in Aruba of Maryland resident Gary Giordano. Giordano, a businessman from Gaithersburg, was to be released by Tuesday evening on the order of a judge, who ruled authorities had failed to justify continuing to hold him.

Reed wrote that the family trusts that authorities will “continue their fervent efforts” to investigate Gardner’s disappearance.
