Natalee Holloway's Mother In Philadelphia

This is actually old news as it happened in November 2005. However, I keep up with the news and I didn't hear a peep about this story. It would have went a long way to help those looking for loved ones to know that Natalee's mom reached out to parents and families who were also missing loved ones in West Philadelphia (traditionally a minority neighborhood.)

Here is the article and if you click on the link there is a 2 minute video report too.

Natalee Holloway's Mother In Philadelphia

Walt Hunter
Reporting

(CBS 3) PHILADELPHIA Five months after she disappeared without a trace on a class trip to Aruba, the search for missing Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway has united people around the country and around the world.

Her mother is in Philadelphia thanking people for their support in her quest for answers.

“I just want to give a big thank you to the city of Philadelphia because they just have been so supportive,” said Beth Holloway-Twitty.

The mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, who vanished on Memorial Day while on a school trip to Aruba had words of thanks for the city of brotherly love.

“We have always spoken that we do not have family or friends here but I feel like I do now,” said Holloway-Twitty.

Sadly, she revealed there were no new leads in the search for Natalee, a search she is convinced has been mishandled by Aruba investigators.

“The current investigative team, we have to look into removing them and replacing them,” explained Holloway-Twitty.

As she presses forward in her efforts to find her, Beth came to Philadelphia to help other families of missing children at an all day conference at West Philadelphia High School on Saturday.

Among those joining her will be Melvin Figueroa, the father of murder victim, LaToyia Figueroa.

“The idea is to invite people who have missing loved ones in this city and for them to come forward and tell their story,” stated City Councilman Juan Ramos.

With no end in sight, she says it is the support from other parents that makes all the difference.

“They have just stayed with us since the beginning and we are so grateful because that is the only way we can get through this,” said Holloway-Twitty

Happy Dance!

Just a few days out of the starting block and Missing Minorities has been nominated for a June 2007, Just Post award!

I woke to see an email from Izzy over at the Blogchicks blogroll that said my blog had been nominated for something. Of course, I thought it was my other blog (I won't link it here, but if you're curious click on my profile and it's there.) However, when I read it, I knew what I usually blog about might interesting it's not "very important".

Hi there,

I just wanted to let you know I nominated your blog for a "Just Post"
award. Normally, you would do this for a post but I nominated your
whole blog because I think what you're doing is very important.
I'm still wiping the sleep from my eyes, so I'm not even sure how this works, but the Just Post June 2007 list is here and I've also put it in our side bar. So click over, show us some support and take a look at the other nominees while you're there.

I see this as a way to just spread the word about what we're all doing so it's win-win for everyone.

Thanks Just Post readers!

Happy Dance time!
