Natalee Holloway: Texas Equusearch returning to Aruba (and other "news")

I can't find a news article to confirm this yet, but it is mentioned on a couple blogs (see and and on a forum topic ( Scared Monkeys says the search will take place in three to four weeks in deep water with help from Superior Offshore International.

Some of the comments on the Scared Monkeys post also mention something about Natalee's mother turning down a $4 million ransom demand and her father saying it was just tabloid news.

Another topic active on Natalee's Websleuths board is about an article recently printed in the Aruban newspaper Amigoe about an unauthorized Medjet landing in Aruba one day after Natalee went missing (see Some say that the Medjet was ordered by the Holloway/Twitty family in case Natalee would need medical attention when they found her. The thread has now been "locked" (no more replies allowed) because some of the Medjet theories seem so preposterous.

I guess we will probably have to chalk up the Medjet and the ransom under the "Natalee Holloway: Rumors and False Leads" category. And the category is unfortunately pretty large. But maybe, there is a bit of encouragement in that, too. To quote Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes books and stories:

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth."

On a more positive note, three people recently traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana, to promote awareness of the fact that Natalee is still missing. For more details and photos of the event, see

Anyway, if you have any actual information on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, please call the FBI tipline at 1-877-628-2533.

The address I had for Natalee's website appears to no longer be valid. However, if you type in, you will be redirected to a flyer for Natalee.
