FILE - An undated file family photo released by Marcia Twitty shows Natalee Holloway of Mountain Brook, Ala. Alabama Judge Alan King signed a court order Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012 declaring Natalee Holloway legally dead, more than six years after the teenager vanished in Aruba on a high school graduation trip. King took that step after a hearing Thursday requested by the teen's father, David Holloway. The father told the judge in September he believed his daughter had died and he wished to stop paying her medical insurance and use her college fund for her brother. (AP Photo/Family photo, File)
