Dave Holloway Stressed But Happy About New Search in Aruba for Natalee Holloway


The recent events in the search and investigation of Natalee Holloway can be best summed Dave holloway signup as a “Tale of Two Dad’s Stress”. While Dave Holloway, father of missing Natalee Holloway, is stressed that the focus is once again front and center on efforts to find his daughter. He is also happy that efforts are once again focusing on finding Natalee.

Dave Holloway said the next few weeks could be “stressful” now that Dutch police renewed the investigation into his daughter, Natalee’s disappearance.

He said he has not been told why they searched the home of a one-time suspect.

About 20 investigators from the Netherlands dug up earth outside the house Friday and Saturday, reviving a case that had seemed to grow cold since the American teenager vanished during a school trip to Aruba nearly two years ago.


“They haven’t told us anything, but it does add extra stress,” Holloway said Monday. “You wonder what they are looking for and if they are going to find my daughter. You know, its been quiet for awhile, and then this happens, and it seems to begin again. I can see this could be a stressful month already.”

“We’ve been so pleased with all the prayers and support from the community.” (Meridian Star)

However, Joran’s father, Paul Van der Sloot, is dealing with quite a different form of NATALLEEHOOLOWAY18-1_Pstress. Its a stress that should have occurred nearly two years ago as Aruban investigators should have gone through the Van der Sloot residence and property with a fine tooth comb. The Van der Sloot’s feel that their privacy has been violated? A small price to pay as compared to Natalee’s family experiencing the loss of a daughter with Joran Van der Sloot being one of the last reported people with her. The heat is probably just beginning for the Van der Sloots. They best get used to it.   

Paul van der Sloot, Joran’s father, told the Nova program on Dutch television that investigators found nothing suspicious and ‘‘they have been reassured.’’

‘‘You can hardly believe it, but they must have seriously been looking for Natalee in our garden. It’s incomprehensible,’’ he said in the interview Saturday.

He said that investigators seized diary notes and letters from him and his wife, as well as a personal computer that was returned later Saturday. He felt his privacy had been invaded.

      No privacy at all in jail, PvdS … just pointing that out.

      How come you don’t have Anita doing sob story interviews these days? Maybe she has too many brains to waste her time, though I doubt it….

      Good luck to you Dave and hope good luck for all of us….but I expect the worst from this…..we can only hope.

      Did anybody just watch Greta NOT MENTION BETH? WTF???? Mentioned Dave, his wife, and Jug but not Beth? What’s the grudge there????

      Greta, Natalee has a MOTHER>I can’t imagine what it feels like losing a child, nevertheless the circumstances and lack of a body to at least know where she is. Beth’s got NOTHING.

      This just goes to show ya…how far things have gone south now. Greta is showing Greta’s ANGLE and that’s IT.

    4. realtruth on May 1st, 2007 10:51 pm

      Greta is a cold hearted bitch – she is on the run for her life for busting millions in investments, she’s running scared and she’s trying to unspin the truth.

    5. december_star on May 1st, 2007 11:05 pm

      Hang in there Dave and Beth, we are all here for you, and we are all praying that you will finally have an end to this terrible time in your life.

      God bless Nat’s family.

      Bring Her Home! -j4n

      I noticed the lack of Beth and her name.I guess I won’t be watching what is her name

    9. tex on May 1st, 2007 11:20 pm

      beths a wonderful human being, as im certain natalee was too. i met beth, spoke with her and saw her sincerity, spirit and broken soul glitter in her eyes when she came to houston for a fund raiser for texas equusearch in 2005.

      Greta also let Julia get away with saying that the investigators didn’t find anything in their search. A good reporter might have said, “oh, did you talk with them?”, or “have they had a press release?”. But, no, no, no, not Greta…She lost her follow up question book about the time she was “inclined to believe” a natural born liar.

    11. Sherry on May 2nd, 2007 1:27 am

      Not taking up for Greta but she it sounded like she accidently said Natalee when she meant to say Beth…something to the effect of..hard for ‘you, Robin, Natalee, Jug” Sounded as if she just made a screw-up…but who knows for sure.

      Re: #10. The spokeswoman for the Aruba prosecutor’s office who was giving statements during the search Friday has said they found no sign of a body. She didn’t say they didn’t find ANYTHING – obviously forensic work is still going on, but yeah, it has been confirmed that no sign that a body had been buried on the Van der Sloot’s property was found.

    13. Peaches on May 2nd, 2007 7:21 am

      Sherry, I was watching with captioning. She DID say Natalee instead of Beth. What a slip. She’s going downhil fast. I’m at the point I watch Carpe’s You-Tube’s so I don’t have to holler at the TV!

    14. Miss-Underestimated on May 2nd, 2007 9:11 am

      I can’t be;ive Julia brought up about how much money it is costing. Wasn’t she part of the group that support PVDS suing the ALE?

    15. MuffyBee on May 2nd, 2007 11:02 am

      God Bless you Dave Holloway. I’m sorry for the pain you must be feeling with the new searches. Although the investigation may bring the truth of what happened to Natalee and bring those responsible to answer for their deeds, it has to be hard all the same. You and your family need answers. It’s just a shame it’s taking so long to find them.

    16. Freebrid on May 2nd, 2007 11:10 am

      Julia bringing up the money was dum! Just think how much money the Holloways & Twittys have spent trying to find Natalee!! It doesn’t matter about cost. If they would have put the crimials where they belonged to start with they wouldn’t be spennding any of this money!!!!! Aruba it’s your own thought what’s happening, if you would just get Natalee back this would all be over with, but if not to hell with you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    17. Miss-Underestimated on May 2nd, 2007 11:41 am


      You are right bring her home. The family of Natalee needs to have closure.

      BTW: Joran admitted he cropped his picture with the picture of Natalee, I think he wrote that in his book.


    18. Carpe Noctem on May 2nd, 2007 8:12 pm

      For real Miss U.

      For the record, Julia Renhoe you effin flea bag,

      the reason this has cost so much… is because

      an investigation that should have taken all of

      about two weeks, was screwed over said badly

      by Aruba… that it has now spanned 2 entire years!

      It will go on for 5 – 10 more years, if necessary.

      PAUL, JORAN, DEEPAK AND SATISH are the reason this

      is costing Aruba & NL so much. The murdering/raping

      Van der sloots and Kalpoes are who you need to

      be angry with. KLPD needs to take it from the top!

      — CLEAN SLATE — Nothing less.


      cut loose into all details have been

      ironed out & examined

      under a microscope. -j4n

    19. Julie on May 3rd, 2007 6:36 pm

      I have an awful feeling that all this is being done (the search) by the family of Joran, the Aruba government and Joran himself to promote his new book. These people are so sleez, I wouldn’t put anything past them. Praying for an end to all this, but do not see it coming from anything the government down there does.

    20. lisa on May 3rd, 2007 8:54 pm

      YES I was floored when Greta acknowledged Dave,step mom Robin , Jug everyone but Beth. Beth probalby wised up and realized that Great whored out her lovely daughters tragedy for ratings,. Her viewers went up by 60% during the Holloway media blitz.

      Then Greta sits down with the guy that is a confident liar and says I believe him . He just lied. Yeah right he lied not for a day or 2 NOOOOO 9 days until he got arrested. He allowed innocent men to sit in jail. He repeated blamed the victim(who has no voice) He is missing a moral compass. Now he writes a book like all psychopaths he needs to flaunt his crime.

      2 years later there is Greta. All she can say is “They need to look for new suspects” Hey Greta Van Whore All roads lead back to these three. I have turned that manly woman off and I’m sure a courageous woman like Beth has too. But Great you bitch -shame on you for not paying respects to Natalee’s mom.

      To #12,postahchild aka Sehoytwo:
      How would renho or anyone(including you Sehoytwo,a antiBeth and Natalee person)know if they found any evidence of a body on the vds compound on FRIDAY when they weren’t even done digging and searching until the next day,saturday?
      Isn’t it about time for your sympathy visit to Aruba Sehoytwo?
