I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

So many came to mind, including Natalee.  We can always hope.

American Woman Rescued in Secretive Military Op, Trump Says

Military.com | By Richard Sisk

President Donald Trump said Sunday that an unspecified military operation had been conducted in a "certain area" overseas to rescue a female U.S. citizen who was being "horribly treated."

Details on the operation and where it was conducted were initially being kept "somewhat private," Trump said, but he added that "we got her out and she's OK, and she's back with her parents."

At the beginning of a White House news conference on the coronavirus, the president spoke to efforts to bring U.S. citizens home from overseas during the pandemic, and cited cooperation from the governments of Peru and Honduras.

"We were able to get a young woman released from a certain area who was being horribly accosted, horribly treated," he then added.

Trump said he consulted with Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley, who "took care of it. We went in and we got her out, but that was rough stuff."

He thanked Milley "and all the people involved and people who went in to get her."

In a question-and-answer session at the news conference, Trump was asked for details, but said only that "bad things were happening to her in a certain country," adding that "Gen. Milley does not play games."

There was no immediate response from the Pentagon to questions on the operation.

We were on the scene and at the museum with Beth Holloway, Natalee Holloway's mother, as she attended several speaking events in the area. Thanks for sharing your story, Beth!

A Reminder to Put Safety First

Alcatraz East Crime Museum, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, has teamed up with the Natalee Holloway Resource Center and Beth Holloway to offer some timely travel safety tips.

Fifteen years ago, on May 30, 2005, Beth Holloway's nightmare began. Her daughter, Natalee Holloway, went missing in Aruba while on a high school senior trip. While the details of her daughter's disappearance remain a mystery, Holloway has turned her grief into a mission of helping others. Not only does she help parents of the missing, but she also helps educate the public on how to travel safely.

Alcatraz East Crime Museum and the Natalee Holloway Resource Center are providing these awareness programs as Holloway speaks to local students, just in time for their spring break and end-of-year travels.

"The country watched the news regarding the disappearance of Natalee. She could have been anyone's daughter and it struck us," noted Janine Vaccarello, chief operating officer at Alcatraz East Crime Museum. "We are honored to work with Beth to help spread the message of ways that people can stay safe while traveling."

Natalee's disappearance sparked media headlines around the world, as people waited and watched, hoping for answers, and as Holloway's quest for answers in finding her daughter was relentless.

While Holloway's grief continues, she has turned her energy toward helping others. She's been seen on the TV show Vanished with Beth Holloway and, along with the museum, is providing assistance through the Natalee Holloway Resource Center, where downloadable resources such as college safety tips, identity-theft information, and information about law enforcement careers could be found. Soon, Holloway will bring her story and message to local schools surrounding Alcatraz East.

"I'm looking forward to sharing Natalee's story with the students, with the hope that they will use what happened in my family to make informed decisions regarding their personal safety, especially in unfamiliar situations," Holloway explained. "Just maybe, it will help keep someone else's children safe. Natalee's story is a reminder to everyone to put personal safety first, and I hope other teens can learn from it."

Travelers never expect bad things are going to happen to them. Yet every year, lives are ruined due to trafficking, sexual offenses, homicide and other incidents. Keep these safety tips in mind when traveling.

Research.
Always spend some time researching where you are going. Don't just focus on tourist attractions. Check out the U.S. Department of State's recommendations, available online. The government will let you know how safe it is to travel to and within a particular country. While you are at it, look up the contact information for the U.S. Embassy closest to your destination and keep it handy—in your phone, written down or both.

Consider health precautions.
There may be vaccinations required or health warnings you should be aware of when you are leaving the country. Be sure to find out if there's anything you must know before you go.

Copy documents.
Take your important documents and make copies of them. The copies can be stored at home, where someone could easily obtain them for you, or electronically, so you can easily access them.

Obtain travel insurance.
This will help provide you with the coverage you need if anything happens. Speak with your insurance provider to see what you should have while traveling.

Check your look.
It may be difficult to do, but as much as possible try not to stand out and look like a tourist. Criminals find tourists to be easy targets.

Keep in touch.
Be sure to regularly check in with family and friends, so people know where you are and where you're headed.

Be mindful.
Always be aware of your surroundings. Keep in mind such things as hotel security, going places in the dark and walking in sketchy areas. Don't get so caught up looking at the sights that you forget to pay attention to what's going on around you.

Watch the alcohol.
While you want to have fun, drinking too much alcohol in a place you are not familiar with can put you at additional safety risks. Pace yourself, get a designated driver, exercise caution about who you are drinking with as well as knowing the legal drinking age, and keep your guard up, so you don't become more vulnerable.

Add protection.
Add tracking and a password to your phone. This will help you find the phone if it gets stolen and, if you go missing, it may be used to help locate you. Connect with a family member or friend back home who can have access to your tracking, in case it's needed.

Sloot says he’ll point the way to Holloway’s corpse
By Dan ManganJune 11, 2010 | 4:00am

 

Van der Sloot has been the prime suspect in the Holloway case for years and has given multiple, conflicting accounts of what happened the night met her. But he has never been charged in the case.

Desperate for money in late March, he reached out via a New York lawyer to Natalee’s mom, Beth Twitty, and offered to tell the supposedly true version.

In the affidavit, unsealed in Alabama federal court yesterday, FBI Special Agent William Bryan lays out how van der Sloot exploited Twitty’s grief by coldly turning her tragedy into a business transaction.

Van der Sloot on March 29 e-mailed a “cooperating witness,” offering to guide him to Natalee’s body, the affidavit said.

The “cooperating witness” was Twitty’s lawyer, John Kelly, according to Bo Dietl, a private eye hired by the Holloway family.

The e-mail threatened that “unless Mrs. Twitty paid the money demanded, he [van der Sloot] would not disclose where the remains of her daughter were hidden,” the affidavit said.

In later e-mails, he said he would take the “cooperating witness” to her body for a $25,000 down payment.

He was supposed to get the rest of the quarter-million dollars after the body was recovered and proven to be Holloway’s.
