Ala. governor calls for nationwide boycott of travel to Aruba

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Alabama Gov. Bob Riley, along with Beth Twitty, mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, called for a nationwide travel boycott of Aruba, citing what Riley called the prosecutors failure to properly investigate the incident.

Holloway disappeared in Aruba May 30.

The move was denounced by Arubas Strategic Communications Task Force, a group of tourism, hotel and government officials set up to address issues surrounding the case.
