LIMA, Peru (AP) - The search is on in Chile today for a man long

suspected in the 2005 disappearance of U.S. teen Natalee Holloway
on Aruba and who is now the prime suspect in a killing in Peru.
Police in Chile say Joran van der Sloot (YOHR'-uhn
VAN'-dur-sloht) entered the country two days before Peruvian
officials announced that he was the prime suspect in the death of
21-year-old Stephany Flores in a Lima hotel.
Chilean Police Inspector Douglas Rodriguez in Arica told The
Associated Press there was no record of van der Sloot leaving Chile
and authorities are searching the country's dry, sparsely populated
northern provinces.
In Lima, police Gen. Cesar Guardia says Flores had been seen
with the suspect the day she was killed.
The killing occurred exactly five years after Holloway's
disappearance.
Prosecutors on Aruba say van der Sloot is still their main
suspect.
