Aruban prosecutors on Wednesday announced they have re-arrested a Dutch student and two Surinamese brothers in the disappearance and presumed death of American student Natalee Holloway more than two years ago.

Taken into custody were Joran van der Sloot, 20, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, who are 21 and 24 respectively, on suspicion of involvement in voluntary manslaughter and causing serious bodily harm that resulted in the death of the 18-year-old Halloway.

The three were with Holloway when she left a bar, May 30, 2005, where she had been celebrating the last night of a trip she had taken with a group of about 100 graduates of her Alabama high school. They had been suspects from early in the investigation into her disappearance, but have never been charged. Holloway's body has never been found.

The arrests "just renewed some hopes that the police are going to find answers to this disappearance of our daughter," her father Dave Holloway told Associated Press Television News. He is hiring people to search the waters of Aruba this weekend.

Dave Holloway does not require official permission and police will not be involved in the search, prosecutor Dop Kruimel told The Associated Press.

She did not say what prompted the upcoming search, and Holloway could not be reached for comment Thursday, but the island's chief prosecutor, Hans Mos, said the father recently told police that he has a clue to his daughter's disappearance.

"We have no indications what he is looking for," Mos said. "Police are not involved because he has information that we don't have ... Anything that helps is fine with us."

On TODAY, Reynolds said of the suspects: "I know the individuals have blamed each other from the beginning. There's a level of responsibility that all three of them have, whether it's hindering the investigation, obstruction of justice, maybe we could get into perjury. There's certainly problems with their behavior that has damaged everyone."
