Mother Of Natalee Holloway In Philadelphia

Mother Of Natalee Holloway In Philadelphia
Article:(CBS 3) PHILADELPHIA Five months after she disappeared without a trace on a class trip to Aruba, the search for missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway has united people around the country and around the world.

Her mother is in Philadelphia thanking people for their support in her quest for answers.

“I just want to give a big thank you to the city of Philadelphia because they just have been so supportive,” said Beth Holloway-Twitty.

The mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, who vanished on Memorial Day while on a school trip to Aruba had words of thanks for the city of brotherly love.

“We have always spoken that we do not have family or friends here but I feel like I do now,” said Holloway-Twitty.

Sadly, she revealed there were no new leads in the search for Natalee, a search she is convinced has been mishandled by Aruba investigators.

“The current investigative team, we have to look into removing them and replacing them,” explained Holloway-Twitty.

As she presses forward in her efforts to find her, Beth came to Philadelphia to help other families of missing children at an all day conference at West Philadelphia High School on Saturday.

Among those joining her will be Melvin Figueroa, the father of murder victim, LaToyia Figueroa.

“The idea is to invite people who have missing loved ones in this city and for them to come forward and tell their story,” stated City Councilman Juan Ramos.

With no end in sight, she says it is the support from other parents that makes all the difference.

“They have just stayed with us since the beginning and we are so grateful because that is the only way we can get through this,” said Holloway-Twitty.
