“Man Detained As 2nd American Female Missing In Aruba”


Six years after American teenager Natalie Holloway went missing in Aruba, a second American female has turned up missing under mysterious circumstances.

According to published reports, a 50-year-old man with a history of domestic violence against women is being held in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner.

Gardner, 35, of Frederick, Maryland, went missing on August 2 from the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in Oranjestad, Aruba. Gary Giordano was detained on Friday, August 5, by Aruban police as he attempted to board a plane and leave the island.

Giordano has a history of domestic violence against his ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend. His ex-wife, and at least one other woman, obtained restraining orders against Giordano in the past, according to Gawker.com.

Reportedly, Gardner hooked up with Giordano after meeting him online last month. The pair traveled to Aruba on vacation and Giordano told authorities that Gardner disappeared while snorkeling.

18-year-old high school student Natalee Holloway went missing on the Aruban island during a class trip in 2005. Aruban native Joran van der Sloot is suspected in her death. He is currently in a Peruvian prison on charges of murdering another woman. Holloway’s body has never been found.

  1. I felt more safe in Aruba than any other island I have traveled to thus far. I stayed at this same hotel when I was there in 05. I plan on visiting the island again it was very clean/small. Beautiful island.

      • Wow he is a psycho, she had a boyfriend who knew about her going on a trip with a virtual stranger who is a platonic friend. Hmph, sounds very suspect. He wanted sex and she probably didn’t give it to him- him being a psychopath left her out in the water to drown and booked back to the states. I don’t think he actually killed her but he definately was responsible for her death.

        In my humble opinion, this is another reason to be VERY careful who you go off to meet. She met this man online, (evidently not knowing his history of domestic abuse in the past), and went with him to Aruba?!! How smart is that? Please ladies, use your brains…H­ate this had to happen again, but it also happens in the U.S., so what are we to do but use our brains?

  18. I travel out of the country all the time–solo, with girlfriends and with a 14 yr old(been doing it since whe was 10). Some people go overseas and forget common sense. As a travel agent, I tell people all the time to use the same caution while traveling that you would use in the states. Hate to say it but a background check should be required if you are meeting someone online. This chick probably saw a free trip and jumped on it not knowing it was a death trip.
