Since 2005, an Alabama family's worst nightmare has left the world wondering, "What happened to Natalee Holloway?"
Natalee was 18 years old when she graduated from Mountain Brook High School in Birmingham, Alabama. The day after graduation, Natalee joined 124 other students and seven adults for a five-day vacation to the Caribbean island of Aruba to celebrate.
For the first few days of her trip, Natalee spent time with friends at the beach and hotel pool, and—since the legal drinking age in Aruba is 18—hanging out in the casino having drinks. But on Sunday, May 29, 2005 things took a mysterious turn.
