Natalee Holloway Missing Persons Center to open in Washington

The Washington Post says a missing persons center named for Natalee Holloway will open in Washington D.C. next month. It will be based, appropriately enough, at the Museum of Crime and Punishment and will be a nonprofit that assists families of the missing and promotes safety.

When I was in D.C. last June, I actually visited that museum with my friend Jeff. We went on the weekend, a day or two before I left for home. I don’t remember seeing Natalee mentioned there, but it’s been awhile. It was a pretty cool museum, at any rate.

    …I don’t want to sound rude and uncaring…but Natalee’s mom bugs me. Don’t know why but I am not interested in Natalee’s disappearance although I would love to see the museum.

      I’m not particularly interested in Natalee’s case either, actually. I decided not to post it on Charley, though I could have due to her US citizenship. It’s just that it would take all day to write up and it’s not as if she hasn’t had massive exposure already.

    What did she “do” to deserve to have the missing person’s center named after her? So many others have disappeared, so why her?

      I believe the center is called after her because her mother founded it.

      What did Charley Ross do to deserve getting my website named for him? I felt like it, that’s all.

        Plus, with Natalee being so well known, the museum may be more successful than if it were named after someone else and with the pubilicity comes visitors.
        I’m just saying the mom bugs me but I do like the idea of the museum and education and attetion missing people and their families deserve.

    What can be done to counteract personal assaults against young adults, male and female?.

    How about a state by state chapter ” Holloway Missing Persons Center” for Missing Young Adults,
