Robyn Gardner, a Frederick County woman, has been missing in Aruba since last week.

As authorities in Aruba continue to search for missing Frederick County resident Robyn Gardner, more questions are being raised about the man who police say is a suspect in her disappearance.

When Gardner traveled to Aruba with Gary Giordano, she didn't tell her boyfriend Richard Forrester. Gardner, who lived in Frederick, occasionally stayed with Forrester at his home in Bethesda.

Forrester says in spite of their relationship, Gardner was less than truthful about Giordano.

"I didn't know who he was. I just knew that he was a friend," he says. "I was under the impression that he was a homosexual friend, and now I believe that's not true."

Forrester also says he doesn't believe Giordano's claims that Gardner was washed out to sea.

"My gut feeling is that something bad has happened. I don't think she was snorkeling or in the water at that time," he says. "She's very concerned about her hair and makeup, and I don't think she would have gone into the water to mess that up.

Giordano is being held by Aruban police in connection with the disappearance.
