Beth Holloway said in a federal lawsuit filed Friday that the deception surrounding "The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway " was so complete she was even tricked The six-episode series aired last year by Oxygen included the discovery of what were supposedly remains that could be those of Natalee .

Dave Holloway, an insurance agent in Meridian, Mississippi, was involved in last year’s six-part docu-series titled “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway” that aired on NBC’s Oxygen Media.

Beth Holloway said in a federal lawsuit filed Friday that the deception surrounding "The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway " was so complete she was even tricked The six-episode series aired last year by Oxygen included the discovery of what were supposedly remains that could be those of Natalee .

Natalee Holloway ' s father Dave Holloway participated in the program and contacted Beth Holloway seeking a DNA sample for use in testing, the complaint said. The mother of an American teenager missing in Aruba since 2005 is seeking $ 35 million in a lawsuit over a TV series about the case.

For the series, Dave traveled to Aruba with private investigator T.J. Ward for 18 months to search for Holloway’s remains.

Holloway went missing in Aruba in 2005 during a senior trip to the island. A judge declared her dead in 2012. Beth and Dave Holloway divorced in 1993, long before their daughter vanished.

“I am proud of the work and depiction of the show, and even though it wasn’t the outcome we had all hoped for, I am glad the world was able to get an inside look of what any father would do if there was even the slightest chance of finding his missing child,” Holloway said in a release Friday.

Beth also added in the lawsuit she believed the show had found her daughter’s remains and therefore gave Oxygen a saliva sample. However, the skeletal remains did not end up belonging to Natalee.

In fact, only one out of the four bone samples found and tested were human remains.

A rep for Oxygen told Fox News they were "disappointed to learn of the complaint and its inaccurate depiction of how the series was produced, and we want to reiterate our deep compassion and sympathy for all members of the Holloway family."

Georgia Tech Coach Josh Pastner Accused of Sexual Assault In Counter-Lawsuit

  Georgia Tech Coach Josh Pastner Accused of Sexual Assault In Counter-Lawsuit Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner has been accused of sexual assault in a lawsuit filed in Arizona, according to Dan Marries of KOLD News 13. The lawsuit is a counter-lawsuit against Pastner, who sued Ronald Bell and his girlfriend Jennifer Pendley for defamation after the two allegedly tried to extort and blackmail Pastner with information that would damage the coach's reputation and cause him to lose his job.In the counter-lawsuit, Pendley claims that Pastner assaulted her in a Houston hotel room in February 2016 when Pastner was the coach at Memphis.

(Beth Holloway /Facebook). A lawsuit is filed in the 13-year-old case involving missing Alabama teen Natalee Holloway . The Mountain Brook teen went missing there in 2005. Holloway was asked for a DNA sample as part of that television docu- series .

Beth Holloway has filed a $ 35 million lawsuit against Oxygen, alleging that last year’ s docu- series “The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway ” misrepresented itself and was a farce of a production. Her daughter went missing in Aruba in 2005 and

Their statement continued, "The documentary series was developed by a production company in close collaboration with Dave Holloway and his long-time private investigator. The show followed his continued search to find answers about his daughter Natalee from a lead he had received. We had hoped, along with Mr. Holloway, that the information was going to provide closure."

Dave spoke to Fox News in August 2017 while awaiting the DNA test results. Dave admitted at the time he was not optimistic it would yield answers.

"We’ve chased a lot of leads and you have your hopes up, but when they fall through, you basically go to a funeral. Over and over again," he explained. "So you have a wall built up, which I do, and so you just wait and see and try not to think about it. And that’s the only way I can cope with it. I’m sure when that day comes very soon I’ll probably be disappointed once again, if it’s not [Natalee's]."

Joran Van der Sloot, a Dutch national, has long been considered a suspect in the case.
In the Oxygen series, Dave met with “an informant who was friends with an individual who had personal knowledge from Joran van der Sloot."

Van der Sloot is currently in a Peruvian prison serving a 28-year sentence for killing business student Stephany Flores. Flores was killed just five years after Natalee Holloway vanished.
