Missing Natalee Holloway

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

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

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.

    Shes been missing for 6 years. But that girl that was held as a sex slave was held for 18 years, the one that had 2 children by the man that was holding her. Everybody might have though she was deceased but she wasn't. So let the mother and all the rest that prays for Natalee keep her alive, until it can be proven she is gone. For all we know she may still be alive.
