AMSTERDAM — Beth Holloway Twitty has left Aruba after spearheading a vigorous but fruitless drive for over two months to find her daughter Natalee.
Holloway, 18, vanished on 30 May while holidaying on Aruba with friends to celebrate their graduation from high school. Aruba is a Caribbean island of 71,000 people and an autonomous part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Beth Holloway Twitty has been highly critical of the investigation into Natalee's disappearance. She has offered a large reward for information leading to a resolution of the case. She says she will return to Aruba if there are new developments in the investigation.
Local police suspect Holloway is dead but her body has not been found despite intensive searches over the last eight weeks. For several days Dutch F-16 jets with special cameras flew over the island in a bid to find her.
Dutch teenager Joran van der S., 17, remains the chief suspect. He was remanded in continuing custody for 60 days on 5 July as the police investigation continues.
Two of his friends, brothers, Deepak K, 21, and his brother Satish, 17, were released from custody on that date but are still regarded as suspects.
The three young men are believed to be the last people seen with Holloway but they denied harming her and claim they left her at her hotel after leaving a nightclub with her.
