A second man was arrested on Friday and the third, reported by local media as being the 37-year-old brother of the first suspect, was taken into custody by police on Sunday morning local time.

The police on Bonaire are continuing their search for Der Kouwen who was last seen being dragged off her bike after a night out. They have thanked local people for coming forward with information.
