East Texas Search Team Is Back From Aruba

by Ramonica R. Jones

Five members of the East Texas Canine Search and Rescue team are back in Lufkin.

The group of trained volunteers just returned from Aruba, where they helped with the search for Natalee Holloway. Holloway turned up missing back in May, just hours before her scheduled flight back home to Alabama.

The team used ATVs to look for clues in the teenager's disappearance. They also covered much of the island on foot. After seven days, the crew came back to Lufkin, still not knowing what happened to Holloway.

The Aruba trip was the first time the East Texas Canine Search and Rescue team left the country to join a search. To find out how you can volunteer, call (936) 674-6926.
