Transcript An Aruban Mystery atalee Holloway's disappearance caused a media rush on the tiny Caribbean island of Aruba and the absence of college students in a traditional holiday destination. Story by Jenna McManus ne of the mysteries of early summer 2005 was the whereabouts of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, who disappeared May 30 during a high school graduation trip to Aruba. Holloway's graduation photo was quickly circulated on national television. Her disappearance sparked months of cable news coverage and protest among media watchers over the extent of interest in the story. Holloway's disappearance did have legitimate impact on American campuses, where safety concerns caused many college students to cancel trips to the traditional Caribbean destination. The overwhelming presence of media on the tiny island may also have played a factor in many cancelled trips. Aruban Prime Minister Nelson Oduber was criticized by many for seeming more concerned over the prospect of a declining tourism rate than Holloway and her family. Police arrested three men who were seen accompanying Holloway out of a local nightclub: Satish Kalpoe, 18; Deepak Kalpoe, 21; and their friend, Joran Van Der Sloot, 17, the son of an Aruban judge. Two other men were later arrested in connection with the Holloway case, but were released soon after; one of them said Deepak Kalpoe told him in jail that he had lied to police and apologized for getting him "in that mess!' Meanwhile, authorities seemed to have come no closer to finding Holloway. "From the family to the FBI to the local authorities to the Aruban government to the U.S. government, I feel like we are all in this investigation, and I do feel like we are beginning to proceed forward" Beth Holloway Twitty, Holloway's mother, told CNN's American Morning. "That's were I want to go because that will help us find our daughter!' Aruban Prime Minister Nelsen Oduber said his government was doing everything in their power to find Holloway. Oduber also assured the media that the island was safe for visitors — a concern in a country that gets more than 60 percent of its income from tourism. "The best thing that we have to do is to allow the proper authorities now to do their investigation" Twitty said. "This is their expertise, and I feel the assurance and trust that we are moving in the right direction!' Twitty and her husband spent two months in Aruba, finally returning home to Birmingham, Ala., to await news in August. 188
