BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama high school student disappeared during her graduation trip to Aruba, and officials said they have few clues after questioning and releasing three men who said they dropped the teen off at her hotel.

Natalee Holloway, 18, was among 125 graduating seniors from Mountain Brook High School, near Birmingham, on a five-day trip to the Caribbean island.

She was last seen getting into a vehicle and leaving a nightclub in the capital, Oranjestad, before dawn on Monday, deputy police chief Gerold Dompig said. She did not show up for her group's return flight later in the day.
