It looks like there’s a break in the case of the missing teen in Aruba.

ORANJESTAD, Aruba (MSNBC/AP) – Police investigating the disappearance of an Alabama teenager in Aruba said late Friday that one of three young men in custody has admitted “something bad happened” to her during her island visit.

Deputy Police Commissioner Gerold Dompig told The Associated Press that the man was leading police late Friday to the scene. He refused to identify which young man had made the statement.

Natalee Holloway, 18, disappeared May 30 while on a five-day trip to the Caribbean island with 124 classmates and seven chaperones celebrating their graduation from Mountain Brook High School, near Birmingham. Police found her U.S. passport and packed bags in her hotel room.Local reports indicate that the Dutch suspect, Joran Andreas Petrus Van Der Sloot, is student at Aruba International School. Van Der Sloot’s father is a prominent official in the Aruba justice system. Reports indicate that Van Der Sloot may have been romantically involved with the Holloway the night she disappeared. The Surinamese brothers in custody, 18 year-old Satish Kalpoe and 22 year-old Deepak Kalpoe, are sons of a local Aruban business man.

Update: Almost 24 hours later nothing is any clearer. AP is reporting that confessions are being denied. Scared Monkeys and Riehl World View are providing several updates a day.
