BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Authorities from Aruba will be in the United States this week to question some of the Alabama teenagers who accompanied Natalee Holloway on her graduation trip to the island nation, where she disappeared last year.

The Arubans, accompanied by FBI agents, plan to interview a number of Mountain Brook High graduates, FBI spokesman Ray Zicarelli said Monday. Miss Holloway’s father said the Arubans are expected to be in the country about a week.

Miss Holloway, of Mountain Brook, Ala., was last seen May 30 leaving a bar on the Dutch Caribbean island with three young men. The men were arrested in June; they were released after a court ruled there was insufficient evidence to hold them.

Miss Holloway, 18, was among 125 Mountain Brook graduates and seven chaperones who visited Aruba after graduation.

“We still need to question a couple of the schoolmates because some earlier given statements to the FBI do not match, and some students also gave disturbing [new] information about the trip on several television shows and on the Internet,” Aruba’s deputy police chief, Gerold Dompig, said in November.
