Natalee Holloway Search To Be Resumed
Not sure what to make of this, Father of Natalee Holloway, Dave Holloway, intends to resume the search for Natalee's remains by concentrating on deeper water. This on the heels of the re-arrests of the three primary suspects. Also, Joran Van Der Sloot should be in Aruba within days, a judge has approved his transport.
ORANJESTAD, Aruba - The father of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway will relaunch a search for evidence of her remains in waters off Aruba, he said Thursday after police re-arrested three suspects in her 2005 disappearance.
While authorities searched the sea to depths of 330 feet, Dave Holloway told The Associated Press that he believes his 18-year-old daughter was thrown into deeper waters - a belief based on talks with a police official and a private forensic expert.
Holloway said a private boat owner is providing divers, sonar equipment and the ability to map the ocean floor.
"It's like this: we've searched all the land areas ... It's common knowledge on the island that if someone were to dispose of the body, it would be out in the ocean," he said by telephone
Holloway said he would alert police on the Dutch Caribbean island if anything is found.
Natalee Holloway Case Officially Closed
Unfortunately, this doesn't come as much of a surprise. I figured they were giving it one last go for a public relations move.
ORANJESTAD, Aruba (AP) — Authorities have closed the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Holloway and do not have evidence to charge anyone, the prosecutors' office said Tuesday.
The three young men who were last seen with the Alabama teenager have all been notified that they will not be charged, the Public Prosecutor's Office said.
"The public prosecutor's office and the police have gone the extra mile and have exhausted all their powers and techniques in order to solve the mystery of the disappearance of the girl," it said.
The three suspects — a Dutch college student and two Surinamese brothers — were seen leaving a bar with Holloway the night she disappeared in May 2005. Police re-arrested them last month in a last-ditch effort to solve the case, but prosecutors said the men did not provide any new information under interrogation.
Natalee Holloway Case To Re-open?
Is this the guy Van der Sloot threw wine on in a recent TV event in Holland? Damn. Strange case - just doesn't want to go away. The question is, is this valid, or a troll for a TV special? Maybe they have someone on camera saying something. Or, could be they simply offer more speculation.
GRETA! Sorry about that election coverage, dear. Actually, Fox is getting worse and worse with the whole crime thing. Anyway, stay tuned.
After a Dutch journalist declared that his private investigation had solved the mysterious disappearance of American teenager Natalee Holloway, the chief prosecutor in Aruba announced today that he is reopening the case.
Van der Sloot Confronts ReporterReporter Peter R. de Vries said he used a sophisticated network of hidden cameras in what he called an "undercover operation" to obtain evidence that he claimed "has solved the mystery" of Holloway's disappearance on May 30, 2005.
He credited de Vries with uncovering the leads and said, "This information may help considerably in the solution of the mystery of Natalee's disappearance."
De Vries said that he and his team had been conducting an undercover operation for several months, and that he would broadcast his findings in a special program on Dutch television this Sunday.

The officer accompanying the dog reportedly told the airline employee that they were going to retrieve what was believed to be Holloway's remains.
"They think they've found where Natalee Holloway's remains are, and they're taking the dog down there to confirm that," the flight attendant told the paper. "They're not telling anybody because Aruba's trying to keep this quiet."
In January, Aruban prosecutors said their investigation into the disappearance of Holloway was nearing the end and appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
