Dave Holloway: “There is always hope of finding Natalee alive; however, police are saying to look in the sea”


From Diario, October 26, 2005:


Dave Holloway has extended his original stay in Aruba to continue the search for his daughter Natalee Holloway. The water searches continue in hopes of finding any clues in to Natalee Holloway’s disappearance.

According to Holloway, the case is continuing forward, he said to commissioner Dompig that he hopes that they can find answers on important questions about the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

As any father would, Dave Holloway continues to remain positive in his search for his daughter as the police tell him to “look to the sea”.

According to Dave Holloway, the hope always remains, however he explained that the police corps indicated to him in which direction to look and at the moment all indications from the police is to look in the sea.

Everyone who does not have a first hand personal connection to the family or Natalee Holloway should take a long hard look at the difficulty that Dave Holloway and the rest of the Holloway and Twitty family must be enduring in search for Natalee some five months after her disappearance. The translated story from Diario (Hat Tip: Get a Grip)

ORANJESTAD(AAN): Recently DIARIO conversed with the father of Natalee Holloway, Dave Holloway, about the fact that he’s back in Aruba.

According to Holloway, the plan was to start searching where Dompig pointed, where perhaps the could find something. DIARIO asked Natalee’s father what he thinks of how the case is going.

More from A.M. Digital; Dave’s hope is to find her alive, Although everything else indicates otherwise.

For those that think this may be about media attention or complain about the fact that a family just won’t give up. Would anyone of us if we were in Dave’s shoes? And who of us would want to be? All other problems in life would seem to pale in comparison than searching for your missing daughter in the seas.

Dave Holloway also said that, although they have hopes to find Natalee alive the police, who are more experienced in these cases, say that they should look for a body, and that is what they are doing.

      Mr. Dompig, according to the US Internal Revenue code beth has to account for all funds received and distributed from the trust fund and the Aruban gov’t is well aware of this knowledge. I’m sure that she has accountants keeping track of every cent, otherwise there are severe penalities to pay including incarceration. This appears to be just another tactic by your gov’t to wrench bad publicity on to the mother whom lost her daughter on your island. Your obviously hoping that a few individuals ignorant of such Internal Revenues codes will change their opinion on the Holloways.

      In my opinion if I was Beth I would step on to your island again – the case may be moving forward with statements; but you have nothing in evidence to show this is true. I support Beth 100% in her actions.

      PS – typing error on my part, should read:

      In my opinion if I was Beth I would NOT step on to your island again – the case may be moving forward with statements; but you have nothing in evidence to show this is true. I support Beth 100% in her actions.

      Dave, you need to look in the landfill, but I bet the Aruban Government will not let you.

    4. BRENDA on October 28th, 2005 12:13 am

      NATALEE’S FATHER no matter what the say no matter what they tell you GO WITH YOUR GUT FEELINGS and follow that. the bond of father and daughter is a strong one follow your instincts and you can’t go wrong keep a open mind and your guard up and bring NATALEE HOME. we want her safe. YOUR GOD GIVEN INSTINCTS will not let you down. trust them

    5. AJMAC57 on October 28th, 2005 8:41 am

      It’s always been my gut feeling that if something bad did happen, she was put into the water. With strong currents around Aruba I hope it’s not to late to search.

    6. John Staton on October 28th, 2005 10:42 am

      Over the past 5 months I have learned too much about who and how Aruba is run to believe anything coming from an Aruban official. Statements given disappear, evidence gets changed, they send out equipment to disrupt search efforts and the primary sites to be searched never are. Now after all of this time they are sending divers where they should have been sent in the beginning. There were reports of signed statements given to the FBI covering statements by Paulus which have not been used to question him. Sorry Aruba, you have to show me.

    7. one who cares on October 28th, 2005 11:08 am

      Beth and Dave: What are you waiting on? You should be initiating a civil suit against the Aruban and Dutch governments for all the expenses you have incurred in your search for your daughter. They botched up this case and permitted a felon to leave the island. At minimum Joran should have been doing 6 months in jail for knowingly deserting some one and not telling the authorities: this is based on Aruban law.
      You should be initiating a civil suit against Joran and his mother and father, for all the expenses you have and will incur for looking for Natalee. Joran was a minor and based on his on testimony should be responsible for any harm that anyone perpetrated against your daughter. And since his was a minor and his parents knowingly permitted him to gamble and drink as a minor are responsible for his actions.
      You should also be suing Satish and Depak for impersonating a public vehicle (cab) and kidnapping Natalee. You should also be suing the police for not regulating taxi cabs so tourist can tell the difference between a taxi and a predator.
      And on top of all of this, why are the police so insistent that Natalee’s body is out to sea?
      Anyone with half a brain would know the perfect burial site would be a mine shaft at the Balashi gold mine ruins, fifty or more feet underground, which are only about 1.5 kilometers from MONTANA and about 3.0 kilometers from the beach where Joran says he left Natalee. Most of these mines have open shafts and are never visited by anyone except on the surface and never underground. If I lived near Montana and wanted to get rid of a body, the mine shafts are what I would pick.
      I am under the opinion that no one really wants closure to this sad case because of all the air time that everyone is getting. Find Natalee, prosecute the known suspects and poof everyone goes home, no more tv shows and interviews, no one has anything to comment about and 68,000 web sites disappear.

      Dear Dave:
      My heart goes out to you. I am glad that they are finally assisting you by telling you in which direction to look.Please always trust your “gut” instincts. I f there is someplace that you feel you should search personally, don’t ignore that feeling.I know that God has been with each & every one of you or else you could not have come this far.We love you & your family.We will continue to pray for you all.

    9. vicki on October 28th, 2005 12:15 pm

      Dave, I say to you never give up hope…trust in your heart and your gut feelings..dont quit no matter what bring “our” sweet Natalee home so we can all breath again.Faith in God

    10. Joe on October 28th, 2005 1:37 pm

      I dunno, but trusting the police at this time for any suggestions or ‘leads’ may be like sending the lettuce home with the rabbit. I hope that I’m wrong……………………

    11. dennisintn on October 28th, 2005 2:10 pm

      cal, you forgot to add that as soon as the fire was out, they immediately refilled the hole dave and jossy’s crew had spent more than 2 weeks excavating. over the objections of the searchers. governmental oversight? i don’t think so. it was purposely done with equipment the govt. said was unavailable for the search because of the scarcity of equipment on the island.

      whatever has to be done to cover up for the jvds’, kalpoe bros., and the rest of the pimps gang is going to be done. i’d still like to know what the parents of all the so-called pimps do for a living on aruba. other high officials and businessmen maybe?

    12. julie on October 29th, 2005 12:51 am

      I agree with Cal…Let me say also that by trying to turn this on Beth the investigators are as I have said all along incapable of handling the investigation and in their frustration of their own lack of intelligence have to try to turn the tables.

    13. Pat on October 29th, 2005 2:44 pm

      One who cares:

      I am sure your advise is from the heart, but is unlikely that anyone on Natalee’s side of any suit will prevail in Aruba. The courts have already shown they will blatantly ignore reason and law to accomplish the purpose of a corrupt system.

    14. Bluesky on October 29th, 2005 4:40 pm

      I do not support Beth Holloway. She’s is in my opinion to Paranoid. I do understand that she is frustrated and desperate, but her behaviour is just too over the Top. She thinks that the whole world should be looking for Natalee. Natalee is a Virgin….?!?!??!PPPLLEEAASSEEE…….Natalee is the most improtant missing person on this planet…. That is DISCRIMINATION…. That is just Paranoia…

      On the other hand I do support Dave. He seems like a fair person.
      Beth should let him have access to the Natalee Fund….He seems to be doing a better job in communicating with Aruban authorities…..

      I am an Aruban, and Proud of it…

    15. dennisintn on October 29th, 2005 9:28 pm

      and what possible reason could she have for being paranoid. 5 months of lies? if i were beth, i’d be worried if i was being paranoid enough.

      she spends 4 months on the island trying to find natalee and get the police and prosecutors office to talk to her. all this time people are telling her to get off the island and forget about her daughter. she needs to leave because she’s impeding the investigation.

    16. EU on October 30th, 2005 7:27 pm

      Bluesky, I couldn’t agree with you more. This whole case is a complete over the top media circus. Unfortunately Americans seems to think different and feel the whole world should be sitting ready for them like a little puppy. But that’s not gonna happen, no sireee…

      I have full confidence in Aruba and it’s judicial system.

    17. one who cares on October 31st, 2005 10:38 am

      REPLY TO EU. Lets hope you never get into a situation on Aruba… mayby you’ll change your opinion. Your statement makes absolutley no sense.

    18. Daryl on November 7th, 2005 11:59 am

      First i’d like to say i’m from Aruba.
      I’ve read all that has been said about this Nathalee Holloway case but what i find very sad and upsetting is that the american media is only listening to one side of the story.
      The twitty/Hollaway Family have said that the aruban government an authorities have done nothing to help them find there daughter.
      Let me give all of you a list of things that have been done, and when i’m finished please tell me if one of your kids went missing in the U.S if your goverment would do what we’ve done.

      1. A couple of days after N.H. went missing the Aruban Government gave all 4000 public works half day off to look for N.H. They started looking all over the island from 12:00 pm miday until 7:00 p.m. ( WOULD THE U.S GOVERMENT GIVE ALL PUBLIC WORKERS THE DAY OFF TO LOOK FOR A MISSING PERSON)
      2. They invited the F.B.I to help with the investigation, but as some of you may not no the law the F.B.I does not have any authority on Aruba so what ever they did there had to be a police official there.
      3. The aruban Goverment invited many and i mean many differant agencies to help. e.g The U.S marines (the one that look for under water bombs, the F.B.I Equ Search and so on.
      The dutch Government sent 3 F-16 fighter jets to Aruba from Holland to help with the search. do you as an American thing if your family member went missing the would send a F-16 fighter jet to look for you. LOL NEVER
      There has been so much doen in this search so many kids and Americans go missing everyday in the U.S and no one ever hears about it and still after so much has been doen and still the want to say we have not done anything.
      What i would like to ask all Americans don’t you find it the least bit suspicious the the adults that were on that faithfull trip left Aruba nowing that one of there students were missing. And now none of them want to talk. The also told the 140 students who were there were instructed not to make a statement, including N.H. ex-boyfriend.
      Anyway thanx for the space.
      Any questions and updates you can e-mail me.

      I want everyone to know, the Arubian Police did a good job of investigating. Whether you believe it or not! I am a 23 year Police veteran and was invited to look at some of the evidence. This whole thing is not what anyone thinks. Juristiction….what’s that? This was planned and executed by a series of individuals and the truth was NOT released by the family and the US government didn’t wish to get involved but they know the truth. The FBI isn’t stupid like everyone says. There was an incident. It escalated, van der Sloot took advantage of it, I agree. So have others!! Aruba has cameras everywhere!!!! They tell the truth. Carlos and Charles cameras told the truth. So did the cameras showing Beth drinking/intoxicated in the casinos gambling!!! Is that a mother looking for her daughter??? Listen to the Van der Sloot tape. Come on people this is all set up!! He even says it…listen to the tape! In 10 year I’ll be a millionare. What does that tell ya? Set up!! Mom illegally uses funding from the funds and noone’s taken steps for an arrest. Look deeper…she who she knows!! Her Arubian attorney quit because she caught her lying and confronted her with it. This attorney is one of the best!!! Dompeg’s version is real close!!! I’ve talked with some of the people. In Aruba, money talks!! The word Rehab comes to mind??? 151 Rum shots!!! Try one, then think about it!!! Yes Nancy there is a medical condition that is called Alcohol poisoning. If not there’s alot of South Texas Doctors that need to return to school! Book,Movie, Money !!! The answer, sorry to tell ya but it has been proven!Enough with the accuzations. If Natalee is alive…what crime did she commit? Who has Juristiction? If the Van Der Sloots come clean, noone gets any money. That’s what this is all about. One clue! Beth stated numerous times she never talked with her daughter while she was in Aruba. Wrong!!! More than 50 calls! Proven Fact!Last note! Did everyone know that Aruba also had another case like this approx 15 years ago almost to the exact events. The girl was found alive and well years later. After the insurance and all the money was paid!IRS where are You??? As far as in the water, not even close!!! Not even a good story! FBI has no juristiction and the Arubian Police’s hands are tied. Juristiction !! Charges!! No extradition !! Van Der Sloot doesn’t care ..he’s a player. Listen to the lastest video where Dompeg explain’s the events. Listen to the Radio commentator who everyone’s against. Closer than you think!!! Soon it will all come out!!!

      Justice !!!!
