Natalee Holloway center opens in D.C.
The mother of an Alabama teen who disappeared in Aruba in 2005 is launching a resource center named for her daughter to help the families of missing persons.
Beth Holloway is scheduled to open the Natalee Holloway Resource Center on Tuesday at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington.
Holloway hopes the center will prevent many more missing person cases. But if tragedy strikes, Holloway says she wants to support families and reduce the challenges that she faced.
The center's opening comes after police in Peru say Dutchman Joran Van der Sloot, long a suspect in Holloway's case, has confessed to killing a woman in his hotel room. He is charged in the United States with trying to extort $250,000 from Holloway's family in exchange for information about the case.
