BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- An attorney says the mother of missing
Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway will oppose a petition by her
former husband to declare their daughter dead.

Dave Holloway, a Mississippi insurance agent, filed the petition
in June. A hearing on the petition is scheduled for Friday.

The 2005 disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, of
Mountain Brook, during a trip to Aruba with friends remains
unsolved.

Dave Holloway wrote that it was his "painful" belief that his
daughter is dead and recounted the years spent investigating her
disappearance.

His request says the teenager didn't have a will and owned about
$500 worth of personal property.

Beth Holloway's attorney, John Q. Kelly, called the request
"inexplicable" and said Natalee's mother still hopes for her
daughter's safe return.
