Aruba Teens dad arrested in Natalee Case.

Aruba Police Detain Dutch Teen's Dad In Holloway Case

POSTED: 3:00 pm EDT June 23, 2005

ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- Authorities have detained the father of a Dutch teen in custody for the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, his wife says.




Anita van der Sloot tells The Associated Press that her husband Paul "was just picked up by police." She added, "I don't know what to think."

The couple's 17-year-old son already had been arrested in Holloway's disappearance.

Joran van der Sloot and two friends were arrested 10 days after 18-year-old Holloway vanished on May 30. The three said she and the Dutch boy were kissing in the back of a car at the beach, but then they dropped her off at her hotel.

Holloway's mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, has insisted that the three know what happened to her daughter. She said police should press them harder to tell the truth.

Officials said that lie detector equipment was brought in for the questioning. Polygraphs aren't admissible in court in the United States, but attorneys said that if everyone agreed, they would use a polygraph in the investigation there.

Van der Sloot's parents visited him in the jail on Tuesday. His mother described him as very upset and sad, but hanging in there. She said that she and her family also are very frustrated with a lack of information -- a similar complaint for Holloway's family.

"I think we all are the same, and frustrated, because nothing is going on," Anita Van der Sloot said. "There's a lot of things going on, but we don't know what is going on."

"He's very upset because today would have been a very great day for him," said Anita van der Sloot. "We would have made preparations for his study in the states, so he's very sad, but he's doing OK."

Rescue Group's Trip Delayed

A volunteer Texas rescue group has postponed until Friday a trip to Aruba to help search for Holloway.

A member said delays in getting permits for their search dogs was the reason.

Joe Huston, a volunteer diver for Texas EquuSearch, said the group has a verbal agreement from Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber to bring three dogs in, but he said they are still waiting for the official papers.

Holloway's uncle, Paul Reynolds, who lives in Houston, asked for the Texas search group's help because the family was frustrated that three weeks of searches on the island had turned up nothing. They will be employing 17 searchers, three dogs and some underwater sonar equipment.
