LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Natalee Holloway Joran van der Sloot case got yet another twist this week with news of a new treaty that could send van der Sloot back to Holland. While the Natalee Holloway disappearance has yet to be solved, a new extradition treaty signed this week between the Netherlands and Peru could send Van Der Sloot back to Holland if he is found guilty of the murder of Stephany Flores Ramirez.

In advance of her new Lifetime TV series, Beth Holloway told news that the Stephany Flores Ramirez murder changed her mind about her daughter’s case. Beth Holloway now believes her daughter is dead.

Nearly six years ago, Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba.

Van der Sloot has been charged with Flores' murder and is a "person of interest" in Natalee Holloway's disappearance. Van der Sloot has been in a prison in Lima, Peru, since June 2010, pending trial. Holloway told Wragge, "It was after ... the shocking news. Prior to airing her new show, Lifetime also aired a documentary that showed video of Holloway visiting van der Sloot in prison last year in Peru.

"I never could have imagined that I was going to be face-to-face with Joran in prison," Holloway said. Wragge asked if she was able to learn anything from talking to van der Sloot.

Though Holloway is still looking for more information about her daughter's disappearance, she's now examining other disturbing and unsolved missing persons cases on her new Lifetime show called "Vanished with Beth Holloway."

Holloway said her years of telling high school and college students about personal safety and travel safety have been therapeutic for her.

The show, however, has thrust her message to a larger audience.
