    Aruba is an exceptionally safe place, this type of incident happens all the time in suburbia USA. I feel bad for the families ,but to blame Aruba is wrong

    thank you for keeping speculation and nastiness out of the mix.

    aruba does not deserve to be slammed, blamed and or criticized.

    this is a tragic situation, if in fact the woman is dead.

    ..........and speaking of internet safety i really caution all of you to be proactive, cautious and vigilant.

    many of you know my email, where i live, my husband's name, my kid's name and i am a huge offender and actually quite stupid in this matter.

    thanks

    By all means this does not reflect on Aruba this happens everywhere. The reason this is so visible is because this rarely happens in such a magnificent place.

    As Andrea stated, this can be expressed by different opinions but lets keep it clean.

    I live in NJ an work in NY, if we were to keep track of these occurrences the news would be inundated 24x7. Oh wait it already is.......

    I do know 1 thing that the currents at baby beach can really get bad. I never heard about this till today but I was snorkling baby beach on Aug 6th and I had a waterscooter and I am a very good swimmer but I can see how someone can also get swept out to sea. I don't know the details but be very carefull when snorkling there and don't go out the pass. Thats the danger zone! Kent
    Snorkel Mangel Halto, day or night with a waterscooter. Check out our website. E-mail Stuart at arubabob@live.com or call Stuart local: 745-7459 Or visit: www.arubabobsnorkeling.com 50th trip Dec 11, 2017

    I'm very disappointed in the media and the Holloway comparisons (I don't see any other than blond & female) and the nasty comments about the Aruban police. Sorry for this woman's families and loved ones. Sorry that the media is so sensationalistic!

    Thank you for saying what I was unable to express in words.

    When I read a news report today stating both this woman and Holloway had stayed at the same hotel, that was the proof that this is totally blown out of proportion.

    FWIW, NH stayed at the Holiday Inn and this woman was staying at the Renaissance.

    I hope they find her, it seems very mysterious at this point.

    Interesting interview on NBC Today Show at 7:35 am with a CLOSE friend.

    He doesn't believe she would even go snorkling. She was most likely at that time of day had a few drinks and would be getting ready to go out for the evening.
