Robyn Gardner of Frederick County went missing in Aruba where she was traveling with a man from Gaithersburg named Gary Giordano.

The mother of a woman who disappeared during a trip to Aruba tells the Associated Press the family is hoping for the best outcome and praying she'll be with them soon.

In a statement released by the Natalee Holloway Resource Center, Robyn Gardner's mother, Andrea Colson, also expressed gratitude to Aruban authorities and volunteers who are working above and beyond their expectations.

Gardner's traveling companion, Gary V. Giordano, has been detained by authorities who had doubts about his account that she disappeared while the two were snorkeling together.

Giordano's Aruban lawyer, Michael Lopez, insists his client is innocent and is being unjustly detained.

Gardner's boyfriend says that he doesn't believe Giordano's story makes sense.

The case is reminiscent of the still-unsolved disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway during a high school class trip to Aruba in 2005. Her remains were never found.
