ARUBA (WBRC) - Scientists are testing DNA to see if a jawbone is a match for missing Mountain Brook Teenager Natalee Holloway. Tourists found the bone on a beach in Aruba last week and took it to a hotel front desk.
Since then, the bone has been sent to the Netherlands and preliminary tests have shown it came from a human female.
Holloway's father says he turned over his daughters dental records to authorities for testing.
Natalee's mother released this statement today:
"There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn't. But no answer at all is the most unbearable. We appreciate everyone's loving care and concern and are anxious about the developments."
