LOS ANGELES, CA (March 17, 2009) � The harrowing true story of a teenage girl who vanished while vacationing in Aruba is the backdrop of Natalee Holloway, a Lifetime Movie Network original film about a mother's search for truth and justice. Tracy Pollan (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) stars as "Beth Twitty," Natalee Holloway's mother, in the highly anticipated movie based on Twitty's book, Loving Natalee: A Mother's Testament of Hope and Faith. The emotionally charged film also stars Grant Show (Swingtown) as Beth's husband "Jug Twitty," Catherine Dent (The Shield) as Beth's best friend and newcomer Amy Gumenick as "Natalee Holloway." Natalee Holloway premieres Sunday, April 19, at 8 pm (ET)/9 pm (PT) on Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime's sister network and the second highest rated women's channel.

ABOUT NATALEE HOLLOWAY

Teenager Natalee Holloway vanished in 2005 while visiting Aruba on a senior class trip. In a passionate and relentless effort to discover the truth behind her daughter's disappearance, Beth Twitty captured the nation's attention by working tirelessly to solve the mystery that shattered her family's life. Today, Twitty continues to speak publicly about the potential dangers of international travel. Her resolve and unwavering strength are at the center of this emotional story that takes viewers behind the headlines and into the heart of an extraordinary woman.

Immediately following the film, Lifetime Movie Network will air a public service announcement (PSA) featuring Beth Twitty. The PSA will educate and inform viewers about how to remain safe while traveling abroad.

"There seems to be a common thread among all of us who have experienced a devastating or traumatic event, and that is the wanting to reach out to others � whether it's through philanthropic events or in my case, taking Natalee's story podium to podium, high school to high school and college to college" said Twitty. "You want to make a difference and ensure that no other family will have to endure the same tragedy."

Additional tips and resources will be available online at LMN.tv.
