Losing a child is a fear that every parent has. But it’s even worse when a child is lost in a suspicious way.

Natalee Holloway was on a graduation trip to Aruba when she mysteriously vanished 15 years ago. She was only 18 at the time.

While her mother, Beth Twitty, still doesn’t have any answers, she’s trying hard to make sense of the whole ordeal. It’s given her a new mission in life. If she can’t be reunited with Natalee, at least she can try to prevent this from happening to other families.

Natalee attended the trip with 124 other students who were also graduating from Mountain Brook High School.

While the trip included chaperones, there were reports that the students were drinking and partying heavily while they were there. Natalee was last seen with local teenagers outside of a nightclub called Carlos ‘n Charlie’s.

In order to prevent something like this from happening again, Beth has been giving speeches about personal safety to other teens. Her public speeches are a reminder to others that this could happen to anyone. Natalee likely shouldn’t have trusted the people she did.

Beth still has hope that Natalee’s mystery will be solved. But she’s also trying to make peace with what happened. For now, bringing awareness to other students is one of the best solutions.
