A jawbone recently found on a beach does not belong to missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway, Aruba prosecutors said on Tuesday.The jawbone with a tooth was found last week.

The prosecutor's office in Aruba said that an analysis based on dental records rules out that the bone fragment came from Holloway.

The jawbone was confirmed to be human, but it is unclear who it belongs to.

Holloway disappeared in 2005 while on a high school graduation trip. She was last seen leaving a bar with Dutchman Joran van der Sloot, who is the prime suspect in her disappearance.
