Despite the long and at times slow process of the investigation into the disappearance of Natalee Hollow, her parents remain confident that it is close to being resolved.
From the AP: Missing Teen’s Father Says Investigation Progressing, Texas Search Group Postpones Trip to Aruba
The father of a U.S. teen missing in Aruba for more than three weeks said Wednesday he was confident that an investigation into the disappearance was close to being resolved.
Natalee Holloway’s mother, meanwhile, spent a second day distributing prayer cards and special bracelets to residents and tourists who offered their sympathy and support.
But her father, Dave Holloway, told Associated Press Television News on Wednesday that the family is confident there will be a resolution soon.
“The investigation appears to be moving forward. I’m optimistic,” Holloway said during an interview at the Holiday Inn, where Natalee had stayed during her school trip. “The FBI indicated to me that the (Aruban) police are very adequate and doing a good job. That gives me comfort.”
Natalee’s mother, Beth Holloway Twitty, for a second day distributed prayer cards and bracelets for her daughter to passers-by in the suburbs.
At one point a car stopped and its occupants told her, “We wish the best.”
Holloway Twitty smiled, went up to the car window, and thanked them.
“I like to have my face and Natalee’s heart in the community,” said Holloway Twitty. “It gives me therapy for the day.”
