The FBI says it sent electronic records and shipped some dental impressions of Natalee Holloway to Dutch authorities in the Netherlands.
Forensic scientists are analyzing a jawbone found by tourists in Aruba last week. There's speculation it might belong to the Mountain Brook teenager who went missing in 2005.
An Aruban prosecutor confirmed the bone is that of a young woman.
A spokesperson for Beth Holloway released this statement Friday morning:
"There is no good answer, whether it is Natalee or whether it isn't. But, no answer at all is the most unbearable. We appreciate everyone's loving care and concern and are anxious about the developments."
