ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — A team of cadaver dogs searched through cactus and scrub brush Tuesday for the remains of a Maryland woman who was reported missing by her travel companion during a trip to Aruba.

Solicitor General Taco Stein says they would be in the Dutch Caribbean island through the end of the week.

They planned to focus their search in a southeastern section of the island known as Seroe Colorado, not far from where Robyn Gardner, 35, of Frederick, Md., was reported missing on Aug. 2 by Gary Giordano, her travel companion.

Giordano has been jailed since shortly after reporting her missing because authorities doubted his account of how she disappeared. He has denied wrongdoing and said Gardner was swept out to sea while they were snorkeling off the southern tip of the island.

    Charge this man or let him go. His constitutional rights are being trampled on here. Where is the state dept. in all of this?

      No they’re not. He killed a woman, they need to find the body. He’s dead meat.

    Willie, the State Department has NO say in how these events are unfolding in Aruba. Get educated please. Americans just don’t seem to get the message that when you are in another country, you will fall under THAT country’s laws and NOT those of the U.S. His U.S. “constitutional rights” don’t exist outside the U.S.
