Dogs find no trace of missing US woman in Aruba

Posted: Updated:

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — A team of cadaver dogs summoned to help search for the remains of a Maryland woman reported missing by her travel companion during a trip to Aruba are leaving the island without finding any clues, officials said Friday.

Prosecutor Taco Stein said he was not concerned that the search did not yield any evidence.

"We have other lines of investigation," he said.

The dogs searched a southeastern section of the Dutch Caribbean island known as Seroe Colorado. It is near the site where Gary Giordano reported 35-year-old Robyn Gardner of Frederick, Maryland, missing on Aug. 2.

Giordano, a businessman from Gaithersburg, Maryland, said she was carried away by currents while they snorkeled in the southern tip of the island.

He has denied wrongdoing but remains jailed because police question his account of her disappearance.

A judge issued an order Aug. 31 ordering Giordano detained for 60 days while investigators seek evidence to charge him with her presumed death.

Stein has said his office will seek to extend the detention order when it expires at the end of October.
