Remains of Natalee Holloway may be found

SAN JUAN (WKOW) -- The case of the missing teenager Natalee Holloway has led to months of searches and speculation. This morning, authorities may have a new lead. 

Aruba officials say they expect to release results of tests on a jawbone found in the Dutch Caribbean island that has led to speculation it might belong to missing teenager Natalee Holloway.

A spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office says the announcement will be made Tuesday afternoon. Ann Angela tells The Associated Press that she does not know at what time the results will be released.

Authorities in the Netherlands requested Holloway's dental records as they analyzed a jawbone with one tooth in it that a tourist found on a beach almost two weeks ago.

The Mountain Brook, Alabama, student was 18 when she disappeared during a high school graduation trip to Aruba in 2005.

She was last seen with Dutchman Joran van der Sloot.
