This reminds me of the case of the honeymooners in Australia where the hubby (allegedly) turned off his new brides air supply while scuba diving. I can't recall their names offhand but they were from Birmingham, AL.

I have no desire to EVER go to Aruba. The place gives me the creeps, MOO.

I pray that this lady is found safe and sound but am not feeling good about the companions story.

Hope this has a good outcome, but I'm afraid of what will happen and if/how it will be properly investigated.

Robyn Gardner, 35, Maryland woman missing in Aruba, 2 Aug 2011

Police in Aruba were questioning a man Tuesday after a Maryland woman vacationing on the island disappeared from the same resort town where Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway was last seen six years ago.

Robyn Gardner, 35, of Frederick, Md., disappeared Aug. 2 from the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in Oranjestad, MyFoxDC.com reported.

Gardner was visiting the island with a man named Gary Giordano, whom authorities have since detained for questioning.

Giordano told investigators that Gardner never made it back to shore after the pair went snorkeling, and has allegedly changed his story several times.

Gardner's boyfriend, Richard Forester, said he does not believe Giordano's account and pleaded for the public to help find her.

Richard Forester says they had been dating for two and a half years, but quarreled before she left. He received his last e-mail from Gardner Tuesday, three hours before she was reported missing.

“The last message I got from her was ‘I love you,’” Forester said. “We will talk and sort things out when I get back,” Gardner wrote.

Forester thought Gardner went with a friend, but now believes she had a romantic relationship with her companion. The man notified Aruban authorities Gardner was missing. He said a current pulled her out to sea while snorkeling, according to an account in a local newspaper.

Aruban authorities detained Gardner's companion Gary Giordano when he tried to leave the island. The 50-year-old apparently has an extensive rap sheet which includes domestic violence.


A center set up in her name is helping Gardner’s boyfriend deal work with local authorities.

Gardner is described as 5’5 and 120 pounds, with blond hair and brown eyes. She has a large tattoo from the back of her left shoulder to her elbow, as well as tattoos on her rib cage and her right bicep.

Giordano was arrested on Friday as he was leaving the island, having already given extensive declarations to the police. His lawyer on Aruba, Michael Lopez, has advised him to make use of his right to remain silent.

I think that must be him. He would be the same age, as well as geographically close to where Robyn is from. I found an article about a previous arrest, which fits into the description of his background as having other offenses.

(ETA: removed link)

ETA again: I just tried to modify/remove my previous post but I guess a mod beat me to it... Sorry, mods!

The one about Target? Found that too, are we allowed to post it?

I've actually now found several more MD cities as residences for him.

And there it is, thanks for posting it

She called the American a “suspect” in the case, but stressed how that covers a wide range of possibilities – from untimely reporting of Gardner’s disappearance to something more serious. “It’s too soon for us to be more specific,” Angela said.

Angela, the prosecutor’s office spokesman, said that on Sunday the suspect and Aruba police went to a beach where the man said Gardner was last seen. In recent days, a local judge ordered him held for an additional eight days while the probe continues, she said.

Forester said that Aruban authorities told him they plan to send Gardner’s Blackberry to the Netherlands for examination. He also said they are looking for clues in her iPad.

I looks like if you want to make someone disappear,just go to Aruba.They will never fully investigate it.This companion was watching her snorkel and I guess no witnesses.It doesn't sound good to me

Praying for a happy ending for Robyn but not feeling too optimistic. Way too many women & children disappear without a trace. Scary!!!!

I think Gary must have caught her texting Richard and he got very upset.Last message to
Richard "I Love you".I wonder if she was just using Gary to get away.

Robyn seems to use the last name Colson, or Robyn Colson Gardner. Praying for her safe return.
