Natalee Holloway: Announcement Coming About Bone Found on Beach

Authorities plan to make an announcement tomorrow afternoon, November 23, surrounding tests performed on a bone found on an Aruba beach. Many have speculated that the bone could be from missing teenager Natalee Holloway.

From the Fox News:

The results of the forensic analysis on a jawbone found this month in Aruba will be announced on Tuesday, potentially providing the first piece of concrete evidence in the death of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway.

Ann Angela, a spokeswoman for the Aruba Prosecutor’s Office, told Fox News she did not have results of the analysis early Monday. Aruba Solicitor General Taco Stein will make a statement following the announcement, she said.

From CNN:

The tests, conducted at the Netherlands Forensic Institute in The Hague, Netherlands, were to first determine whether the bone is that of a human or that of an animal. If the bone is human, authorities said, they would attempt to determine through DNA testing if it belonged to Holloway. The Alabama 18-year-old was last seen on the island in 2005.

Holloway’s dental records were sent to the forensic institute last week, according to the FBI.

Tim Miller, director of Texas EquuSearch — a search-and-rescue organization that has looked for Natalee Holloway — said the girl’s father believes it is his daughter’s bone.

“Dave has been in contact with Aruban authorities and spoke with FBI this morning, the agent working the case. Dave believes it is Natalee,” Miller said about Holloway’s father, Dave Holloway.
