The investigation continues into the disappearance in Aruba of a American teenager, Natalee Holloway.
Dutch police and forensic investigators searched the yard of a one-time suspect for the second consecutive day. They used metal rods and shovels to probe outside the home of Joran Van Der Sloot, the last person known to have seen the missing teenager.
Authorities have also been seen bringing dogs and a jackhammer into the walled property.
Holloway, an 18-year-old high school graduate from Alabama, vanished in May 2005.
