Missing Natalee Holloway

Lawyers are filing motions today demanding a court free two security guards whose innocence was declared by the mother of a missing Alabama teenager.

Also today, the family said Natalee Holloway's stepfather plans to organize a new search for the 18-year-old who disappeared May 30th.

Beth Holloway Twitty, in an interview with the Associated Press, said that three young men in custody know what happened, and that if she does not see results soon, she might start to believe that authorities are trying to protect them.

Holloway Twitty declined to say what she thought the young men had done or whether she thought her daughter was still alive.

Lawyers for all five insist their clients are innocent, and no one has been charged.

Prime Minister Nelson Oduber went on national television last (Sunday) night to reaffirm Aruba's commitment to solving the case.

Holloway Twitty said she will not leave Aruba until her daughter is found.

Update at 830am Monday

The mother of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway missing on Aruba says three suspects "hold the key" to her daughter's whereabouts.

Beth Holloway Twitty says the two Surinamese and one Dutchman who were with Natalee Holloway on the eve of her scheduled trip home "have the answers."

Holloway Twitty says that a nagging thought in the back of her mind says the Aruban government is protecting the three students. As Holloway puts it: It's up to the Aruban authorities to assure her "that will not be an issue."

The mother tells NBC that the 18-year-old is in "everyone's heart because she's everyone's daughter."
