Accidental death has not been ruled out in the case of a missing Alabama teen whose fate remains a mystery.

Police and FBI agents are still searching for 18-year-old Natalee Holloway of Mountain Brook, but officers say a lack of any solid leads is hindering progress.

Aruba Attorney General Caren Janssen said authorities have not ruled out any possibilities, including that Holloway may have drowned. It is not immediately known if FBI divers have conducted an underwater search.

Holloway has been missing since May 30th. She vanished while on a trip with more than 100 classmates celebrating their high school graduation.

Meanwhile, in Mountain Brook today, Marcia Twitty, the teen's aunt, her brother and stepbrother said they are going to Aruba where they plan to distribute one-thousand yarn prayer bracelets made by Natalee's friends.

Marcia Twitty said the family has been contacted numerous times by psychics offering help. She also said the family has received no contact indicating anyone was asking for a ransom.
