Gov. Bob Riley is calling for a travel boycott of Aruba until authorities on the Dutch Caribbean island cooperate more fully with the family of a Mountain Brook teenager who has been missing since a graduation trip in May.

Riley today asked the governors of the other 49 states to join him in urging a boycott of Aruba on behalf of the family of Natalee Holloway. The 18-year-old Mountain Brook High graduate was last seen on the island May 30.

Her mother, Beth Holloway-Twitty, joined Riley at the Alabama Capitol for the boycott announcement. She contends Aruban authorities have failed to adequately investigate the possible murder of her daughter, who was with a teenager, Dutch national Joran van der Sloot, and Surinamese brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe on the night she disappeared. They were held for a time and released.

Extensive searches for Holloway have failed to find any clues about her whereabouts.
