Dave Holloway Continues Search for NataleeDave Holloway, father of missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway, has returned to Aruba to personally take part in an offshore search with the help of Texas EquuSearch volunteers and investigators in Aruba.

The trip to Aruba is the fifth for Dave Holloway, who has concentrated his efforts on physical searches for Natalee, while her mother, Beth Twitty, has worked to keep her daughter's case in the media spotlight.

"Even if I'm not searching for her in Aruba or following up on tips on the computer here in Meridian, she's still on my mind," Dave Holloway said in an interview with his hometown newspaper. "It's hard to concentrate on anything else."

Holloway has said many times in interviews that Aruban investigators should go back to the beginning and start the investigation over and that may be exactly what is happening now that Gerold Dompig, a new deputy police chief, is on the case. "He says he's going back to the beginning and going forward from there," Dave Holloway said.

Dompig has promised action if media interviews with the suspects in the case -- in which they admitted having sex with Natalee on the night she disappeared -- turn out to be accurate.
"They always denied having sex with this young girl," said Dompig. "And so, in looking at the tapes, to watch if this is really what this gentleman has said, then it is totally contrary to what he has declared at our police station."

Case 'Will Turn Around Fully'"I assure you that, once this is verified, and if it's legitimate, the case will turn around fully," Dompig said. "And it will be for us absolutely enough new information to talk once more to this young man, or, as a matter of fact, with maybe to all three."

Beth Twitty claims to have a transcript of a police interview with Joran Van Der Sloot in which he claims he had sex with Natalee while she went in and out of consciousness, but Dompig says the Dutch teen never made such a statement to police.

Natalee Holloway has been missing since May 30, when she was last seen leaving a nightclub in Aruba with Joran Van Der Sloot, Deepak and Satish Kalpoe.
