  • Details of Disappearance
    Natalee was participating in a senior trip to Aruba on May 30, 2005. She is originally from Mountain Brook, Alabama, a suburb of Birmingham. Natalee was last seen at about 1:30 a.m., leaving Carlos 'N Charlie's nightclub in Oranjestad with Dutch-born Joran van der Sloot, the then seventeen year old son of an ex-judicial official trainee, and two companions, Satish and Deepak Kalpoe, Surinamese-born brothers of East Indian origin, in Deepak's car.

    After missing her flight home, her personal effects (including passport, cell phone, and clothes) were found in her hotel room.

    On June 9 Van der Sloot and the Kalpoe brothers were arrested as suspects involved in a crime against Natalee with “reasonable suspicion of murder, manslaughter or intentional containment with the dead as consequence.” On Saturday, September 3, 2005, all four suspects were released from pre-trial confinement on the condition that they remain available to police, however on September 14 all restrictions on the remaining suspects were removed by an Aruban Court of Appeals. Though all arrestees technically remain suspects, they are no longer in custody. Joran Van Der Sloot now resides in Holland, where he is attending college.

    Foul play is suspected; she may have been forcibly taken off the island. There is a $1 million reward leading to her safe return.
