"The investigation has never stopped and the Dutch authorities are completely reviewing the case for new indications," said Vivian van der Biezen, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office.
She told reporters waiting outside the gates of the Van der Sloot home that the Dutch investigators had been on the island for some time. It wasn't clear how long they planned to remain on the Caribbean island.
In a statement to the press, the prosecutor's office said, "the team has indications that justify a more thorough search." No further details were revealed.
Members of the media, watching from outside the property, said they did not see investigators carrying anything away from the search. It was also not know if searchers went inside the main residence area of the house.
Case Still Under Investigation
Natalee Holloway disappeared May 30, 2005 the day before she and 124 of her classmates were scheduled to return from a senior trip to Aruba. She was last seen leaving a bar with Joran Van der Sloot and his friends Deepak and Satish Kalpoe.
All three were jailed and questioned in the case, but all were released. Van der Sloot, who is now attending college in the Netherlands, admitted to being with Holloway the night she disappeared, but said he left her alone on the beach.
