FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Friends of a Maryland woman missing in Aruba say her wild tattoos belie a gentle nature.
Robyn Gardner disappeared during a trip last week. Police there have detained her traveling companion, Gary Giordano of Gaithersburg.
Frederick salon owner Christina Jones said Wednesday that Gardner is her part-time roommate and full-time friend.
She says the laid-off dental-office worker is a sweet-natured woman who loves traveling, jogging and her two Siamese cats.
Gardner mostly lived in Rockville with on-and-off boyfriend Richard Forester. He describes Gardner as open and outgoing.
The 35-year-old divorced woman decorated her body with tattoos including a jungle-print design on her left shoulder and a Latin phrase over her right ribcage that means, "If I can't move the earth then I'll raise hell."
