    The mother of missing teenager Natalee Holloway sneaked into the Peruvian prison where suspect Joran van der Sloot is being held and confronted him about fate of her daughter, according to local news reports. Beth Holloway-Twitty arrived at Castro Castro Prison with a Dutch journalist, Peter de Vries, who is investigating her daughter's disappearance for Dutch television, the Peruvian news program 24 HORAS reported. Holloway-Twitty was reportedly able to speak to Van der Sloot for five minutes Wednesday before she was removed by the authorities because she did not have permission to talk to him.

She also hopes it will prevent more missing persons cases by providing travel safety tips and advice for college and high school students.

    [babelfish+ translation] Although he had already been presented before the media, the National Police made Dutch citizen Joran van der Sloot march past (again) when the Interior Minister, Octavio Salazar, held a press conference. In an eventful presentation, and in the company of the Chief of the Main Directorate of the Police, Miguel Noble, Salazar avoided giving details of the investigation. The unusual event was crowned when the presumed murderer of Stephany Flores was shown before journalists for the third time, which generated disorder in the Interior Department headquarters. The police minister and authorities refused to respond to the questions...

Thursday U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance announced extortion and wire fraud charges against van der Sloot. Vance claimed van der Sloot sold false information about Natalie Holloway’s disappearance and circumstances surrounding her death to someone in Birmingham. Vance said $15,000 was wired from Birmingham to the Netherlands on May 10, 2010 and that van der Sloot was ultimately seeking $250,000.

    Joran van der Sloot faces an arrest warrant on charges of extortion and wire fraud in Alabama, U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance said Thursday. The charges are unrelated to van der Sloot's status as a suspect in the killing of a Peruvian woman. The complaint alleges that van der Sloot tried to extort $250,000 from an individual in exchange for the location of the remains of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway and the circumstances surrounding her death, Vance said. Van der Sloot was once the main suspect in Holloway's disappearance in Aruba in 2005.

    Greta came on with blockbuster development. Twitty's attorney, John Q. Kelly, apparently had the moves of the Vandersloots under extreme scrutiny. The Vandersloot parents had flown to NYC for an interview with ABC .. Joran was en route from the Netherlands to NYC to meet with them. Kelly had a former law enforcement official seated 3 seats in front of Joran on the plane, and when they were on American soil and were about to deplane, he served papers on Joran for 3 counts. Simultaneously, the Vandersloot parents were served in NYC ... the father charged with 1 count. Greta...

    Beth Holloway Twitty tends to hug reporters. She asks about their families and seems to mean it. In interviews, she rarely breaks eye contact and begins every few sentences with the reporter's name, as in, "Dan, it's just been a nightmare," or "You know, Larry, I can't tell you how frustrating this is." Twitty talks daily by phone with Greta Van Susteren, the Fox News personality who practically moved to Aruba to report the story that has captivated people around the world and turned the grieving mother into a peculiar kind of superstar. Natalee Holloway, Twitty's 18-year-old daughter, disappeared May...
