Got the word Jenna from the -- authorities the jawbone found on the beach there by an American tourist does not belong to Natalee Holloway.
And that was the mass email -- -- authorities -- this this is coming to us through the Associated Press.
But there had been so much speculation that a jawbone found on the beach there which was said to belong.
To a young female might be that of missing American teenager Natalee Holloway who disappeared more than five years ago.
It turns out that it is not Natalee Holloway is job on who it belongs to.
We do not yet know but according to DNA evidence it does not belong to Natalee.
Hall will looks like there's several reports coming out now John as we work through some of the news -- seeing senators reports according to as you mentioned the Associated Press not for the Dutch.
I television network as well reporting is that -- the job and does not belong to the -- missing.
I US teen Natalee Holloway of course she disappeared.
And it's been.
Well over 2000 days as she's been missing and as we've talked about on our show several times there's been a Los a lot of false starts you can call -- dead ends when it comes to actually finding out.
I -- missing person and Phil Keating -- in -- pointed out to us just moments ago that this is still missing person case that there hasn't been any evidence to suggest.
The Natalee Holloway was murdered of course he had all those different reports coming from.
-- -- -- -- who is now in prison.
In Central America.
And part of the reason well part of what he offered to do was to.
Extort money from Natalee Holloway and I'm sorry from Beth Holloway Twitty.
Extorting money from her.
In order to show her where the body was buried.
But again this is not -- the jawbone of Natalee Holloway that according to the room and authorities who have done extensive DNA testing as well as.
Dental testing on on the bone on the job on the was found by an American tourist.
Walking on the beach.
They then turned it in it to -- hotel desk at the resort where they were staying.
We have a map that shows essentially where that that bone was found it is not too far from the hotel.
Where Natalee Holloway disappeared but once again it is not hers -- is it.
Don't know that yeah that's a good question right we can't forget that we had yet to officially confirming and doctor Baden forensic -- is going to be joining us shortly.
It is it's actually human bone remember there was a lot of different reports that came out several different reports that it was indeed belong to young female.
That dead -- stories have been very quiet about -- -- -- officially.
About this -- that was discovered just last week.
I John mentioned that Anderson to.
I tried to extort money from -- finale Holloway Stanley he tried to get 250000.
Dollars from -- in return for disclosing the location of her body.
Obviously that was uncovered in -- -- -- that did not happen.
That there's been a variety of different rewards just -- send information about this case.
It's and the hallways of offered a million dollars you award just for any information her safe return and yet here we are again still five years later.
Waiting training new -- breaks in this case.
It's one of the purpose persons to went to a rumba after Natalee Holloway disappeared our -- Harris Faulkner she has more information -- -- from the breaking news this -- yet you know I just wanted to kind of make the point leaders are just talking about the the family there.
I had talked with and have continued to keep contact with the family's attorney.
John -- Q Kelly throughout this whole jaw bone find.
-- they had not initially made a statement because they wanted to wait and see.
Just simply is -- had brought up they've been down this road so many different times with different types of so called evidence and findings and and so on and so forth and as they are hanging on this morning you know they had known about this they knew that the jawbone belong to a Caucasian female.
I'm that the odds of it washing up onshore even though islanders locally have told me the storm systems have just brought up so much old debris on the beaches.
That they were shocked that something would wash up.
The family knew all along that they were to sit by the phone and not make a whole lot of public statements.
Until they really knew the details of this very sad for them because they're so desperate to find closure back to you guys -- Harris Faulkner.
Thanks and joining us now is doctor Michael by and his friends it massages on so Fox News contributor that's doing -- -- several times here to talk about this case and interesting I talking to headed the show today as the hours had ticked by have you grown more -- to -- less optimistic about finding out about these results.
-- less optimistic than it was Natalie because at no point did they put any police security around the site with a -- was found.
If this where Natalee and a -- homicide.
They would immediately surrounded -- -- in the Aruba to see if there any other -- involved but now still they've got identify who it is it's some.
Person some human being then that has to be identified -- -- family notified as to.
Who that person thing to do that from the -- -- from the DNA.
Doctor -- stick with -- for just a moment we have our own Phil Keating he's on the phone with us from outside the prosecutor's office.
In Aruba -- -- -- the prosecution's.
Seeing here obviously.
Wasn't sure what to expect what we re released this David but clearly it's not gonna be the -- Media Thursday there were anticipating at this.
Piece of jawbone would want -- still embedded in it has been ruled by the Netherlands could -- as secure -- not data Natalee Holloway but.
These statement by the -- above the you're also doubles is that.
It is not -- at all they don't know who's.
-- it is it is definitely a human jawbone.
But the origin of this blown.
Is undetermined at this point talking with locals.
You're in Aruba they speculated the other could have been anybody that may be tried as it legally -- -- drowned.
Trying to reach.
Do island nation of -- over time but.
The bottom line here is for the Holloway -- -- into yet another.
Another another possible lead to break the case.
That has ended as a false lead the job.
Phil Keating in Aruba Phil thank you so doctor Baden.
It's a lot easier if you have a name that might be -- tests and -- gruesome human tissue it's a lot easier to do a DNA sample.
And find out whether it is that person.
But if all you have is a bone it's a lot harder to tell who that belongs -- without parents or some other DNA sample compared to right.
Surely but what the Aruba police should be doing is going to have many missing people have been -- -- appear as five or ten years.
That have not been found and is there anybody who'd been reported as drowning.
