Teens From Missing Girl's Family Say She Wasn't Killed

Natalee Holloway, Aruba:

Sources: Search Resuming For Natalee

(CBS) CBS News has learned that authorities in Aruba are resuming the search Wednesday for missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.

The lead investigator in the case calls this the "critical last phase" of the search.

Holloway vanished nearly 10 months ago while on a high school graduation trip.

48 Hours Mystery correspondent Troy Roberts told The Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen Wednesday that Aruba's Deputy Police Chief, Gerald Dompig, is hoping new clues help authorities find her.

"They're bringing in cadaver dogs from Holland to search the dunes, and also the beach area near the Marriott hotel, where the prime suspect, Joran van der Sloot, said he last saw Natalee," Roberts said . "They're also bringing in ground radar equipment that was used to try to find mass graves in Bosnia. And, finally, they're comparing satellite images of this area taken before Natalee disappeared last May and photos taken (more recently) to see if there's, like, a shift or something peculiar, changes in the landscape, to help pinpoint a burial location." ...

    On Aarone T. it sounds like two kids who have either decided they didn't like their foster home and came up with a plan to get out, or who have reacted to family pressure and have decided to speak out. I know the family has never mentioned prior to this, that the boys were witnesses to Aarone being in the home the morning she was reported missing. And they have been quite outspoken with the media through other family members and spokesmen. If this were true, you would think that they would have mentioned it earlier.
