Mountain Brook, Ala.

The mother of Natalee Holloway, an American teenager missing on the Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba since May, returned home to Alabama this week after all three suspects in her daughter’s disappearance were released. Beth Holloway Twitty said she had “exhausted all my avenues” for finding her daughter, who was last seen leaving a bar with Joran van der Sloot, 18, and two Surinamese brothers. Prime Minister Nelson Oduber said he could understand Twitty’s “dismay,” but promised the investigation would continue. Van der Sloot, who is off to college in Holland, says he had nothing to do with Holloway’s disappearance. “He’s a good boy,” said his mother, Anita.
