The Alabama Senate voted Thursday to support Gov. Bob Riley in his call for a boycott of Aruba.

State Sen. Steve French of Birmingham got the Senate to vote 27-0 for a resolution supporting the governor. French says the resolution was requested by the family of Natalee Holloway.

The teenager who lived in Mountain Brook, Ala., disappeared May 30, 2005, while on a graduation trip to the Caribbean island.

Holloway is a Mississippi native, whose father, Dave Holloway, lives in Meridian.

The Senate's resolution says a boycott is needed because the investigation into Holloway's disappearance "has been plagued with an unacceptable amount of missteps, miscommunications and inconsistencies."
