Natalee Holloway's father looks for answers in Aruba
ORANJESTAD, Aruba -- Natalee Holloway's father was back in Aruba on Monday, hoping the suspect in his daughter's disappearance has provided local authorities with new clues since being arrested for the killing of a 21-year-old woman in Peru.
Dave Holloway planned to discuss the latest developments with prosecutors and investigators at a meeting today, said Tim Miller, a friend and the founder of Texas EquuSearch, a group that has repeatedly searched for the missing Alabama woman since her disappearance in 2005.
Miller said volunteers were ready to resume the search if there is any new information from Joran van der Sloot, who was jailed Friday on charges of killing business student Stephany Flores on May 30 in a Lima hotel.
Miller said the killing of Flores, on the fifth anniversary of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway's disappearance in Aruba, opened up old wounds for the distraught father, who has been frustrated with the lack of progress by Aruban authorities.
"He's very saddened," Miller said. "He feels that if the Arubans had done their job, Joran would be in jail and Stephany would be alive."
Holloway and Miller have made many previous trips to Aruba in search of clues about the teen from Mountain Brook, Ala., who was last seen leaving a bar with Van der Sloot on the final night of a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island.
