THE BIZARRE disappearance of Robyn Gardner on Aruba has led cops on the island to an abandoned phosphate mine. The pretty blonde from Maryland vanished Aug. 2 on a clandestine trip to the island with an older suitor, Gary V. Giordano, also of Maryland.
Now, cops and firefighters are searching the mine and there was some grim evidence: a pink shirt and sandals. The mine is near where she went missing on a supposed snorkeling expedition.
Solicitor General Taco Stein said: "As long as we don't have a body, you can question whether or not she is dead. On the other hand, with all the publicity on the case, if she were still alive she would have made herself known."
Robyn and the 50-year-old lothario arrived in Aruba July 31 and shared a room
at a resort. Cops have video of them eating at a restaurant, not far from where he says she disappeared while snorkeling. No one saw them go into the water. Giordano, shown below, with cops is being held. The case is eerily similar to the 2005 disappearance in Aruba of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway. her body has never been found. The son of an island judge, Joran Van der Sloot is suspected of killing her. He is being held on murder charges in Chile for the slaying of another young woman. Coincidence? We think not.

Aruba became familiar to Americans after the 2005 disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway. Authorities repeatedly detained individuals suspected of involvement but then later had to release them for lack of evidence. That case was never solved.
