After a lengthy and long probe the chief prosecutor in Aruba has said he might close the case of missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway.
Hans Mos said the only way he will keep the case open was if prosecutors had strong enough evidence to go to court before the new year.
The investigation has to end at some point he said, and he has promised the three suspects that after Dec.31st he will not pursue the case.
Mos has also stated that two years is a reasonable time for bringing charges against someone. Mos has also said that he doubts that Holloway's body will ever be found.
Holloway disappeared in 2005 while she was on a graduation trip. She was 18 years old and was seen with the three suspects on the night she disappeared.
As of now no one has been formally charged in the case.
Mos's comments came after last week's release of the three suspects.
