UPDATED: Jawbone found on beach does not belong to Natalee Holloway

ARUBA (RNN) – Aruban authorities said Tuesday that the jawbone found on an Aruban beach does not belong to missing teenager Natalee Holloway.

According to CNN, the Aruban Public Prosecutor's office said the bone and a tooth are human, but forensic testing in Hague, Netherlands, indicates they do not belong to Holloway.

Further confirmation of the results are expected later Tuesday afternoon.

The jawbone was found by tourists on an Aruban beach on Nov. 12, sparking the latest round of hope for finding the Mountainbrook teen.

Holloway was 18 when she disappeared May 30, 2005, while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving a bar with Dutch citizen Joran van der Sloot on the final night of her trip.

Aruba prosecutors have repeatedly said they lack evidence to charge van der Sloot, who is currently in jail in Peru accused of killing a 21-year-old woman May 30, 2010 - five years to the day after Holloway's disappearance.

The search for Holloway has seen numerous possible leads that turned into dead-ends.
