Robyn Gardner was last seen a week ago in the same resort area of Aruba where Natalie Hollaway vanished six years ago.

Aruban Authorities ended the active search for missing Frederick County resident Robyn Gardner, but continue to question Gary Giordano of Gaithersburg.

Aruban Solicitor General Taco Stein says investigators are suspending the search for Gardner because they have no more leads to pursue. Stein added they planned to continue questioning Giordano.

According to investigators Giordano claims both he and Gardner went snorkeling off the southern tip of the island Aug. 2. They decided to swim back to avoid strong currents, but when Giordano arrived on shore Gardner was not in sight.

Giordano's Aruban Attorney Michael Lopez says his client was not involved in Gardner's disappearance and is being unjustly held.

In a written statement to the Associated Press Lopez says, "Our client emphatically denies being involved in any malicious act concerning his friend and consequently does not consider himself a suspect."

The prosecutor's office in Aruba detained Giordano Friday, as he tried to leave for the U.S., because of questions about information he gave police. So far, prosecutors have not said what raised their suspicion.
