Jawbone Found in Aruba Not Natalee Holloway's

The mystery surrounding Natalee Holloway's missing body goes on. A jawbone recently found on a beach in Aruba does not belong to the missing teenager.

Dutch investigators say they compared a tooth on the bone to dental records the Holloway family provided and "it could be excluded that the investigated bone material and molar came from Natalee Holloway," the prosecutors said.

A tourist found the bone last week, leading to hope that it was Natalee's, giving her family some sense of closure. But it was not to be.

Natalee was last seen in the company of Joran van der Sloot while on a vacation to the Caribbean island in 2005. Van der Sloot has been questioned several times but never charged in her death. He is currently being held in Peru for allegedly killing a young woman there.
