How can a class trip go so wrong? This week, Amy and Chris detail the tragic disappearance of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway while in Aruba with her graduating class of 2005. Natalee was last seen at a local restaurant with what is currently the prime suspect, Joran van der Sloot. Joran was a Dutch student living and studying in Aruba, and who had a reputation for picking up American tourists.
Natalee and friends were sightseeing and partying around the island, often joined by Joran. On the last day, when Natalee didn't show up at their hotel despite her bags being packed, her friends became worried and began contacting the police. To this day, Natalee's body has yet to be found and she was declared legally dead on January 12, 2012.
Amy and Chris bring you some background on Natalee and Joran, the investigation (or lack thereof) by Aruban authorities, as well as a few possible theories as to what ultimately happened to Natalee.
