Searches Continue For Natalee Holloway in Aruba near California Lighthouse


Despite the lack of media attention or the fact that all suspects have been released from custody, searches do continue in Aruba in the investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Search1Holloway. Yesterday divers searched the coast line of the Northwest shore behind the California Lighthouse. The divers were supervised by Prosecutor Karin Jansen and searched the rocky coastline and caverns.

MALMOK – Yesterday, a search team continued diving for missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway. The divers, supervised by Prosecutor Karin Jansen together with lawyers Vinda de Zouza and Mr. Mohamed retained by the teen’s father Dave Holloway, searched the coast line of the Northwest shore behind the California Lighthouse. The area in question was a deep cavern where diver Gino Wauben and his team searched the caves. The waves were crashing into the rocky coastline where strong currents pushed Search2the divers into the cavern. This was a very dangerous situation as the divers were tossed by the treacherous waters into the rocky coastline.

The search did not provide any new evidence in the investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

      I think that this is one big cover up.. Hiding of evidence and a bunce of false leads.. America is suppose to be a powerful country ……….. I think that it is time from teh american gov to step in……. Maybe then we can all get answers.

      So, with another flight by Dutch citizens to avoid prison, it seems that what happened on Aruba is more a practice than an event based upon serious judgement.

      How deep go these caverns go back? Does the current wash into the caverns?

      Karin Janssen its nice of you to continue searching so let me say thank you for that! Now please get your submarine out there to search the ocean floor. You can search for hrs even days at a time. You may find what you are looking for then and, that would be our beautifull Natalee. Then the Holloways and, the Twittys will have closure.

      Karin – Aruba is not going to be ever free from the world’s perception of ineptness or incompetence until Natalee is found and her killers brought to justice. Don’t forget about the thousands of American boys who made the supreme sacrifice during WW2 to rescue the Dutch people – we haven’t…….and we won’t………..

      i guess its o.k. to murder american girls in aruba as long as you change your story a few times and basically tell the family of the victim and the justice department to go fuck themselves. this will bolden the animals to do it again.

      What ever happened to the arm (bone) that was found. I thought it was supposed to be sent for DNA testing?

    13. Dawn on September 26th, 2005 6:33 pm

      TOTAL COVERUP!! The Dutch do not want their image “tarnished”. A confession, admittance to guilt, that should be enough – which they HAVE. But it seems the prosecutors are trying to find more loopholes for the defendants than their own defense attorneys!!! I don’t get it….just don’t…..

      I love this site btw…..

      I also have a theory concerning the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. This is what might have happened. I am sorry to say that my personal feeling is that Natalee is no longer alive. The feeling I have, on the night she disappeared is that Natalee wanted to get back to the hotel after she was hit by Joran after some kind of argument at Carlos and Charlie’s. I have a feeling he told her he would get her a ride back to the hotel. However Joran told his friends, the brothers, that Natalee would service all three if they offered their car. I think Natalee was drugged by Joran just prior to leaving the club but the drug did not take effect until after she was in the brothers’ car. That is why she looked ok getting into the car. None of these persons saw her alive again. Once unconscious the three took her to a convenient location. My guess was it was Joran’s apartment/house. There I believe there were more than just the three involved that took advantage of her while she was drugged. Some of Joran’s other buddies were involved and may later get nervous and talk. (I also feel they were stupid enough to video tape everything that went on there).

      In my opinion, if she was not awake or partially awake there would be no reason to eliminate her for even if she recognized Joran or the brothers, everyone knew they left together. She would just wake up on the beach where they would ditch her; a confused victim of a rape and that would be the end of the story and Natalee would fly back home sore, bruised, raped but alive.

      There had to be some other reason why she had to be eliminated. I feel that this was just a case of kidnapping and date rape: not a kidnapping, rape and premeditated murder. My opinion is someone else was there and involved with the gang rape and that if recognized would stand to lose a lot more than the three that kidnapped her.

      In my opinion that person is one who cannot account for his time on May30th. Someone close that also raped Natalee. Someone who sweats a lot during interviews.

      I feel that her body was then taken to the other side of the island were the National park is located and disposed of in one of the caves.

      Because of the political stature of this person this investigation will go nowhere and is nothing but a whitewash. I feel that all the searches have been red herrings to draw attention away from where I feel may be her resting place.

      I also feel that Natalee is no longer alive. I feel that she is buried in a shallow grave near that chapel on the other side of the island. She’s not in water. She’s in sandy dirt. Probably between the chapel and those old caverns. I had a vision of where she was while I was praying for the family. I wrote news corrospondents and posted it on the natalee holloway website, but have not heard anything. I also called the FBI and told them. Still haven’t heard anything. They don’t need a search warrant to search this area….and yet they still don’t. If I were Natalee’s mom, I would want to check out EVERY tip. Including mine.
