Texas Group To Help In Aruba Search

The family of Alabama high school graduate Natalee Holloway hopes a Texas group can help in the search for the missing teen-ager.

Volunteers from Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team plan to leave for Aruba tonight to carry out a search of the island. Officials say the contingent will include 17 searchers and three search dogs. They'll bring with them sophisticated sonar units for boats.

 Holloway disappeared in the early hours of May 30th, the last day of a five-day vacation with 124 students celebrating their high school graduation.

Her family is preparing to file a lawsuit demanding that authorities give them the evidence gathered in the three weeks since the 18-year-old vanished.

A court in Aruba is detaining four people.
