    Gary Giordano and Robyn Gardner

    A team of cadaver dogs arrived in Aruba to search for the remains of a Frederick, Md., woman who was reported missing two months ago by her travel companion.

    The dogs arrived from the Netherlands last weekend and will search for the body of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner, Solicitor General Taco Stein told The Associated Press. The search will focus on a southeastern section of the island known as Seroe Colorado.

    U.S. businessman Gary Giordano, 50, of Gaithersburg, Md., has been jailed since Aug. 5 on suspicion of involvement in her presumed death while authorities pursue evidence against him. Giordano denies any wrongdoing and says Gardner was swept away while they were snorkeling off the Dutch Caribbean island on Aug. 2.

    Authorities said they became suspicious of Giordano because he tried to cash in on a travel insurance policy he took out on Gardner and there were inconsistencies in his story. He was detained before he could leave the island.

    Giordano’s family has hired Jose Baez, the attorney who defended Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee. In Aruba, Baez can serve in an advisory role and provide other assistance, but he cannot argue in court, according to Giordano’s Aruban lawyer, Michael Lopez.
