"All it took was one person to come forward," said Beth Twitty, mother of Natalee Holloway, who has been missing from Aruba since May 30.

Twitty says the young woman told her, like Natalee, she had met Joran van der Sloot and his friends, brothers Deepak and Satish Kalpoe, in an Aruban bar while on vacation.

A young, beautiful, blonde 18-year-old tourist, she happened to be at Carlos and Charlie's late; it was getting close to closing time," said Twitty.

Twitty described the anonymous witness account of a night at the same bar Natalee was last seen at, driving away with the three young men. How Joran was continuously scoping Carlos and Charlie's.

"He approaches these three tourists and it's just interesting how he just instantly begins to try to connect with, begin to try to relate with them," Twitty said. "And he was telling these girls that those are his gambling buddies, that they play poker together. And then he proceeds to lean across the bar and tell the bartender, "I need four shots of 151.' He just leans across the bar; the bartender just lines up four shots of 151. These girls had no idea. It makes me wonder, is this the shot he was buying my daughter right before closing time? A shot of 151? I wish Natalee would have been able to see that those three were tightly connected. She didn't have that privilege. All she thought was she was getting into an Aruban cab. She didn't have a chance. She didn't stand a chance."

Twitty maintains her belief that the story of her daughter's disappearance lies with the three friends of whom only Van der Sloot remains in custody.

"We know they took her. That is firmly established. I know someone has some information. I'm just praying that they will come forward and just share with us," said Twitty.

Van der Sloot has not been charged and will be released from custody on Sept. 4 unless prosecutors can produce evidence against him.

Beth Twitty says she has no plans to leave Aruba again until that day, unless Natalee is found sooner.
