(Newser) – Natalee Holloway's father is back in Aruba today, hoping the suspect in his daughter's disappearance has provided local authorities with new clues since being arrested for the killing of a 21-year-old woman in Peru. Dave Holloway planned to discuss the latest developments with prosecutors and investigators at a meeting tomorrow, said Tim Miller, a friend and the founder of Texas EquuSearch, a group that has repeatedly searched for the missing Alabama woman since her disappearance in 2005.

Miller said the killing of Flores, on the fifth anniversary of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway's disappearance in Aruba, opened up old wounds for the distraught father, who has been frustrated with the lack of progress by Aruban authorities. "He's very saddened," Miller said. "He feels that if the Arubans had done their job, Joran would be in jail and Stephany would be alive."
