It's so sad what happen to natalee I would south appreciate a chance to speak to Beth if someone could tell me a way to make that happen I admire her so much for her relentless search for natalee it's so unfair some things in life an they will never make sense or seem right much less understandable. Some pain may never heal completely an then again maybe u don't want certain pain to heal because u don't wanna forget.256-572-6933 if someone knows how to reach Beth thank u do much n u will always be remembered Natalee Holloway

I never knew Natalee I watched the coverage and was sickened as a mother of 2 daughters to hear what was going on.The media and people in the world get so wrapped up in the story and forget she was a real person with people who loved and cared for her.Praying for your family :) Natalee will never be forgotten.

From the moment the news broke about Natalee I have never been attached to a missing persons story. I want you to know that as you I truly believe that the monster has done something with her but will never admit it. I do feel she is in the hands of our Lord and he has her safe. My prayers go out to all of you that have to sit back and watch the current news with another murder under his belt. God Bless You !!

I donot know your family, but my memories of how I felt, the day the news of Natalee hit us all, will never ever leave me. I feel that sadness each time the news brings us an update, and each time we have to hear of the murderous monster who took Natalee from you. At the time of Natalee's disappearance, my son was also enjoying graduation and celebrations, so I felt such a strong connection to you. I only hope that someday, you will find peace. Please know how many of us out here, are still thinking of you often, and keeping Natalee in our hearts. I

I'm so sorry for your dear and loving girl Mrs. Holloway, and i'm hoping with all my heart that you'll find your daughter after all these terrible years. I'm with you Beth, i can't understand your feelings about that but i can tell you that i'm with you in this story. It must be horrible to lose her daughter. I don't know what this is and what you can feel when you've children because i'm just an 14yo girl and when i seen this case at TV, it marked me. Natalee was a beautiful woman and i'm sure she would have had succeeded her studies medecine's. All my sincerity and love wishes for this new happy year to you and your family i hope. With all my love, Sincerely.

In the 6 yrs Natalee has been missing, I CANNOT get something out of my head about her murder. There was a man that had a boat, he launched it during the time of her murder. It was briefly mentioned in the news, but nobody seemed to follow up on him. I believe he may have taken her body out into the ocean. He was only gone for a short time, but I think he disposed of your daughter. Any thoughts on this? I'm on facebook and would appreciate some sort of reply about this man. Thank you so much for your time and my heart goes out to you, Natalee and your family. .

Dear family, my prayers and my thoughts are with you. Please, forgive my limited english language skills. After a while I finally decided to write you to respectfully suggest an alternative option in the search of you beloved one. So far I know, in a very specific cases some mediums have been helpful in situations like the one you are facing. A skilled one is able to give you information that can lead to find missing persons. In fact, I met one who helped NYPD years back and because of that her life was in jeopardy and had to leave the city. Unfortunately, she passed away this year. But I am sure if you look carefully, you can meet a reliable one who doesn't want money for his help. It is just an option. Please, believe me, I wish you the best and I hope this story will end up with justice. Regards

Dear Holloway Family & Friends - Like some of the other posts here, I just came back from a weekend away to catch the Lifetime movie relating to Natalie. I'm a 37 yr old, female, lawyer, living with her two dogs in Washington, D.C. Just about as "normal" and "Mayberry" as it gets. As fate would have it. I visited Aruba and Peru at the exact times that are or were significant to this situation - so odd that even my father asked me whether I was "aware" of the then-current events. No, I was not. Eh? Has nothing to do with me, I thought. But who could have guessed. I've actually never written to a blog, but I am so moved at the capture of innocence by coincidence... and I was so moved by this portrayal on film - it is hard to articulate what it is that I think I want to say. I suppose it is something like this: I do not (yet) have children and may never, so I cannot actually relate to the emotional rollercoaster all of you have experienced. Quite honestly, what I related to most, was the uttlerly unsatisfactory and almost mythological Tantalus-styled criminal that is (in my mind) the offender-- holding information, relief and resolution hostage. As it so happens, however, I see that all the time. I hope you, as friends and family of Natalie. understand that while the answers and legal "justice" you seek may be out of your reach at the moment, the indomitable spirit that you ALL impose through your show, her memory and your family and friends leaves all of US a little sharper, a little more grateful, and a LOT more empathetic. Please do not let endurance get you down. Natalie, her friends and family, HAVE, and continue to leave, their mark in the world and in our country. Several years later, WE ARE LISTENING. Thank you. Jennifer

I am truly sorry,I live on the east coast of the U.S. I am watching the story on lifetime right now,not sure how true to the real story the movie is,I can think her mom spent much more time and tears fighting for her rights and getting this sick killer put to justice then they show in the movie,although there is not alot of air time on TV.Ur daughter did not pass in vein,it has opened alot of eyes of how safe is travel for young girls and as someone else stated,was she sold? I am so sorry for her family and everybody she blessed by her presence..I am so so sorry..

My prayers go out to her n her family. Honestly I still think she is alive. Its a gut feeling and when you are a mother, you have motherly instincts. I feel for her mother. This woman has not stopped looking for her daughter and if I was in her shoes, I wouldn't neither. I would search for the truth until I die. I will always have natalee n her family in my prayers. She is alive, I know she is. People might think I'm crazy and really I don't care. I'm a fighter, so to her family, fight to get the truth, you deserve it and any parent deserves to hear the truth. Have a wonderful day!

30 May 2005 - 30 Apr 2011 Today represents 71 months since Natalee disappeared. She was last seen in the early morning hours of May 30, 2005 and to this day not a single item of hers or piece of evidence has been found that would determine what happened to her - she has vanished without a trace. Many have moved on due to the passage of time but we have not and will not until the answers and Natalee have been found. The reason we will not give up is that our hearts have been deeply touched by one young woman - a young woman that we only know by images we have seen of her and from words spoken by those who know her and love her. The place she has within our hearts can not and will not ever be replaced. Natalee has been missing for many months but she is not forgotten. Her spirit lives within us, forever in our hearts. What is important now is for us to remember three things: ~ We did not come into this to only come part-way. If we are truly sincere and committed to it, then we're going to commit to it all the way and that 'all the way' means until Natalee is brought back home. ~ Heroes are ones who never quit! Heroes stand their ground in the face of all odds and continue. Natalee and her families need a hero and we have to try our best to be that Hero. ~ We must hold true to our beliefs and we must remember that everything happens for a reason. We may never know why something such as this happens, but we have to believe that we will find out when we are meant to know. We will move forward once again into a new month with the fervent hope that our prayers will be answered and Natalee will be found and returned home.

I pray peace and comfort upon her family.I will never forget her or the very public pain of her loved ones. Beth I don't know if you will ever read this and it may not make a difference but i am still praying for you and your family. I will hold the memory and an honest tribute to your daughter in my heart forever.

i have kept up with Natalie's case because my daughter, Kristen Charbonneau, disappeared on August 11, 2005. I too know who killed my daughter but there's not enough evidence to prosecute the killer. I heard about your new show and I didn't know any other way to contact you. I woudl love to be on your show and maybe someone will see Kristen and come forward. I apologize for using this website to contact you but I have no other way. Please contact me at monica.charbonneau@live.com. Kristen is all over the internet and her website is The Disappearance of Kristen Charbonneau. Hoping to hear from you

30 May 2005 - 30 Mar 2011 Today Natalee has been missing 70 months - 2,131 days. Time just keeps moving on without any word about Natalee and it seems as if no one is actively doing anything to try and find out where she may be. The Search for Natalee was discontinued many months ago with the message being it would be continued again. However, this appears to be another false hope and it is so disappointing because Natalee is still out there, somewhere, waiting to be found. Some do not seem to understand why we are still here after all this time. The reason is because we all fully understand and embrace the value and importance of life and we hope that our time and efforts will help to bring resolution to a family that has for seventy months only wanted one thing - to have their precious and much loved daughter, Natalee, returned to them. In going forward from this day, we should not dwell on the past or any of the things that may have been done because it can not be changed. Therefore, we should focus our thoughts and efforts on the days to come. We can not return to yesterday and no one knows what tomorrow will bring, so we must make each day that comes a day of hope, faith, and promise for Natalee and her family. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but faith looks up! I wrote this poem when Natalee was missing 48 months. It has been modified to include all of us. Lord, Hear Our Prayer Oh Lord, please hear our prayer. We know You hear us, because You are everywhere. We send up a prayer for Natalee tonight, As we do each and every night. Our heart aches so very bad And it makes us so very sad To know that Natalee is still gone. Oh, Lord, why must it be - this is so wrong. We ask You, Lord, please make a day For Natalee to come home to stay. Thank You, Lord, for hearing our fervent plea And, please, from all of us, give our love to Natalee.

I NEVER forget about Natalee. And as long as I live...I will never step foot on Aruba for pleasure. And anytime I hear of anyone going...I give them guff and just to be immature...tell them to look for her while swimming. Sorry and i want them to be aware. She's in heaven now...just wish the Lord could show us where she is...

Natalee once said, "If I leave here tomorrow, will you remember me"? There are many of us whose answer to her question will always be, "Yes, Natalee, we will remember you - now and for eternity, no matter what".

30 May 2005 - 28 Feb 2011 Although today is not the 30th of the month, it is the end of another month which makes Natalee's disappearance stand at 2,101 days or 69 months. It is truly amazing to know that this young woman Natalee, who none of us ever knew, could bring us all together and become one united in purpose, compassion and determination. It would be hard to name others who have created such an effect on so many. Many months ago there was a young woman Natalee Who was unknown to you and me. She came into our lives and settled in our heart And to this day we have not been apart. We have learned from her, and her family too, just how precious life is and that there is no guarantee for tomorrow. We must live each day and ensure that our interactions with others is done in a respectful and caring manner to not tarnish their dignity and value - or as Natalee expressed it, "We must cherish every face". We do not know when this will all end or what the outcome will be. We can only keep our hope strong and have faith that one day Natalee will be found and brought home where she belongs. There will be disappointment and we will get discouraged, and perhaps much more time will pass, but we must continue on without hesitation. Remember that it is in the name of Natalee and for the love of Natalee that we are here. If we do not continue, we lose the purpose, compassion and determination that made us one.

30 May 2005 - 30 Jan 2011 One more month has again passed and Natalee has not been found and returned to her family. There are just no words that can explain why this travesty of justice will not come to an end. The most disheartening part of it all is that we, after all this time, still do not know what happened to Natalee and what was done with her. There has been nothing of hers found, no sightings of her, and no valid evidence that she was harmed or given to others - she has just vanished without a trace. If only those who know what happened would realize that although you can not go back and start a new beginning, you can start today and make a new ending so that this situation could be resolved and the unknowing would cease. Only then could the lives that have been affected start the healing process. Because there has been no real, verifiable truths, all we know is what has been speculated and rumored. There have been so many lies, false information and untruths that is possible that Natalee could be somewhere unknown, waiting to be found. So we must keep the hope and faith alive for her. However, if Natalee is truly gone from this earth, the poem below sounds like something she would write. I'm Still Here Friend, please don't mourn for me I'm still here, though you don't see. I'm right by your side each night and day And within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I'm always near. I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll never depart As long as you keep me alive in your heart. I'll never wander out of your sight - I'm the brightest star on a summer night. I'll never be beyond your reach - I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach. I'm the colorful leaves when Autumn's around And the pure white snow that blankets the ground. I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond, The clear cool water in a quiet pond. I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring, The first warm raindrop that April will bring. I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine, And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine. When you start thinking there's no one to love you, You can talk to me through the Lord above you. I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze. I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep. I'm the smile you see on a baby's face. Just look for me, friend, I'm every place. We need to talk more about Natalee so that she is kept in the forefront and everyone, everywhere will know her and about her so that her name and image will never fade.

30 May 2005 - 30 Dec 2010 Although we say that we hurt and feel as bad as those who know and love her, we will never know just exactly how that hurt really feels unless we have been there and experienced something like this. We have not had to experience the not hearing a soft and familiar voice - we have not had to experience the longing for a warm and loving embrace - we have not had to experience not seeing the sparkle of eyes - we have not had to experience not seeing a beautiful smile. Some of us, though, have been or are in this situation and can relate to what life is like and continues to be without resolution. This has been the life of Natalee's family members and friends now for 2,041 days. It can not be said enough that we must: - continue to make sure that all know that Natalee is still missing - continue to be a voice to defend her honor, her integrity and her good name - never let her be forgotten. This is not over and will never be until Natalee is found and returned home with the dignity and grace that she and her families so deserve. If you begin to have doubts, then at the end of the day when darkness comes, look up into the sky and remember ..... The Star of Hope Each evening when the day turns into the night We can look up into the sky and see a star shining bright It is there every night, and it will always be Because it is a Star of Hope for Natalee Nothing will take away its brilliant shine Nothing, not even the passage of time For like the star, hope is eternal and true And it is always there for me and you We can never give up in our quest We must always do our very best We must never give up on Natalee For she would never give up on you or me Into our hearts she has made her way And she will be there each and every day She is unique - she is one of a kind And she will never be out of our mind No matter what the outcome of all this will be She is and always will be, Natalee She is like the star that shines each night She will always be a star that shines so bright Oh,Star of Hope, a star so brilliant and bright The wondrous star we see each and every night Make our one and only wish come true for Natalee Bring her home to her friends and family.

30 May 2005 - 30 November 2010 66 months have now passed since Natalee went missing. 66 months of unknowing and heartbreak experienced by her family not knowing her fate or where she may be. There were so many times when it was felt that the answers were near but it was only false hope from those who continued to abuse the emotions and hearts of a family, The truth of what happened has been known by some since the beginning 2,011 days ago, but has been suppressed either by fear, pressure by others to keep the truth from being known, or just because those involved just do not care about anyone but themselves. The most recent example of 'we don't care about you or yours' was the way the find of a human jawbone was handled. To make a public announcement to the media without first informing the family is totally reprehensible, but not uncommon to what has been done for 66 months. 66 months with no resolution - 66 months of knowing no more than we did at the beginning. There are no adequate or reasonable answers to explain why this continues - but it does. There are no words that can be said that would offer consolation to Natalee's family members and others that love her so dearly. Nothing can be said that will replace the torn hearts, the abuse and hatred that has been experienced and continues to this day. All that is left right now are memories of a beautiful life and the loss of what was hoped for the future. The mission that we accepted 66 months ago is a mission we must see to the end. It has not been easy and as time continues to pass it will get harder to stay focused on what is important - which is Natalee and her family. Many have abandoned their mission of support while some continue their mission of hatred and abuse. We must always be a voice that is loud and clear to overcome those that want to deride and divide. We must hold on to hope with all our strength and faith and never let go of what we believe. We can not give up - we can not forget. Natalee is still out there somewhere, waiting, and until she is found and brought home, this is not over.

Dear Beth and Family, My prayers are with you every day! Beth I seen on the news that you went to Peru and talked with Joran Vander Sloot in jail. You did the right thing in doing this! You needed to do this Beth! You had to talk to him for your daughter Natalee, yourself and your family! I heard that interview you did and my heart was deeply touched by all you said to him from your heart! I am praying that he does write you as he promised you and that he tells you where your daughter is. I am praying for him that God will touch his heart to help you!

Please know that I have prayed for Natalee to be found. As a mother to a girl Natalee's age, I can not imagine what you are going through. I prayed that our God would grant you peace. I know pray that comforts you and give you strength to move forward. "Behold I Make All Things New". As Christians, I'm glad we have Jesus Resurrection. If God can raise his son, Jesus after his horrific death, surely we know that he will raise also his daughter, Natalee. She has returned to her father and our father to her God and our God. I am sitting here hanging on each news cast. You are not alone. Please know that she will never be forgotten...nor will she let us.

Dear Beth and family, When the news first broke of Natalee disappearance in Aruba, my son was the same age, and getting ready for all the celebrations of graduating. I felt in my heart, how it must've felt to you and your family to be going through this horrific ordeal. I watched the news in those first weeks, watched it turn to months, and years. I have never let you and your family out of my heart and mind. Now here we are, and possibly you have a definite answer, and I am in tears for you once again. What a beautiful daughter you had, Beth. Please just know that our hearts and our prayers, and all the support we can give, are right here for you. We are sorry, so very sorry for all you have had to go through, but we have admired your courage to keep this news alive, to not let it stop until there are answers. Please know too, we will never ever forget you and Natalee.

Only a mother with an only daughter can understand being so consumed in finding your daugher. You have demonstrated tremendous courage and strength that has gone beyond measure. I ache and grieve for you as a mother. No amount of words, no amount of consolation will take away the emptiness that has turned this case into a mission in finding Natalee. I feel your sorrow; I feel your pain - but all I can offer you is SILENCE. You can weep and grieve as long as it takes until infinity. You will move on at your own time within your own space. Don't let anyone dictate to you otherwise. You have been an inspiration to me, I will never forget. Your overwhelming strength and courage as a mother bring tears to my eyes. I pray that God will spiritually guide and strengthen you even more and forever bring peace within your heart.

I have been following your case ever since Natalie went missing. My thoughts and prayers and have always been with you and your family throughout your whole ordeal. I read the updated news on Natalie and I know that you must be awaiting anxiously for the results to find out if it is indeed your daughter. I can't imagine what you are going through and I pray that you find answers soon and some closure for yourself and Natalie. You are a wonderful and strong person and I give you so much credit. You are always in my thoughts and I hope that Natalie may one day rest in peace like she deserves. Roxanne-Connecticut

With the recent news of the discovery on the beach in Aruba, it is my prayer that perhaps, although it is not how you'd hoped you could bring Natalee home, that IF this is indeed your daughter that you may finally be able to have the answers you desperately needed & be able to finally have your daughter returned to Alabama where she belongs. You & Natalee have been in my thoughts and my family's prayers these past 5 years & I am more sorry than you could possibly know for all you've endured as I have a 16 yr old daughter myself. Your pain I cannot even imagine & I admire you more than you know for your unrelenting strength & resove you have demonstrated to the world in your pursuit of justice that's been long denied to you. Thank you for showing the world what mountains a mother's love can surely move. Ms. Holloway it is my prayer for you that one day you will have the peace that you seek & now more than ever, you are in my thoughts each day. Sincerely, Jana Lalewicz

Please know that God has a plan and somehow all this fits into it if for no other reason than to get Joran Vandersloot off the streets. God will not forsake you, He will show you what happened to your child. In His time. When you have done all to stand, stand therefore!

30 May 2005 - 30 October 2010 There has always been such great hope that another month would not end without knowing what happened to Natalee and where she may be. But, once more, a month has ended with nothing known and it has now been 65 months since Natalee disappeared. When Natalee first went missing, there were those that immediately began to slander her and her family without even knowing who they were. And, to this day, the berating relentlessly continues. Additionally, there are those who attempt to profit from this terrible travesty in every way possible. It makes one wonder just what is in the minds and hearts of people that would do something so unspeakable. The only way that this can be overcome is to focus on the many, many people who have stuck by Natalee and her family and continue to provide support and compassion. It is extremely important that the many who are committed ensure that their voices stay strong and united so that the memory and images of a beautiful young woman and the integrity of her family remain untarnished. Yes, it has been a long time but, we can not lose hope - we can not lose faith - we can not cease praying - we can not give up on Natalee or her families - no matter how long it takes. Natalee needs us and so do her families. Natalee is still out there, somewhere - waiting ....

I didn't know Natalee, but i have been praying for her family for all these years, and i would just like to say that she will always be in my prayers, no family should have to go threw what her family is going threw. I just hope that the story of Natalee will help all young women to realize that this can happen to anyone and be careful no matter where you are. always in my prayers alison lamb

64 months after nathalie was still missing I think this is still considered today very well for the mother I hope that they ever really able to close the book and that there is some truth ever comes up for her that she really find peace and the book for good can conclude I've seen the movie and was sad to become still feel very sorry for the mother and for nathalie and I have enormous respect for the mother so much really done for her and also as I've watched that movie is really not normal that they just have to wait a couple hours, but I think this is terrible how people work that way, and showing no respect to those dear mother so terribly upset I think this so much and I wish the mother a lot of strength even if it is already 64 months ago, it stays up it's in your head and you'll never get lost and the worst is that mother is there but I take great hope for mother who is ever something comes up for its truth I think she is a very sweet woman with so much dedication to her beloved daughter Nathalie really I have enormous respect for that woman and nathalie is still with her in her heart forever, but then if the matter ever comes out of the water can also lovely wife forever to close out her book because each story comes to an end but this is really endless and so I hope that that lady may be too little happy has had much sorrow and I live not too bad with all this happening as there are many people who sincerely do that again sorry for the very long story but here is an end to Beth I wish you all the best and I hope for happiness in a mountain much strength from you greetings bart from the Netherlands
