Judge says Natalee Holloway's death petition will proceed

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A Jefferson County probate judge has ruled that the petition filed by Dave Holloway to declare his daughter Natalee Holloway legally dead can proceed. 

In a ruling issued Friday afternoon, Judge Alan King granted the request to begin the legal process of declaring Natalee as deceased.

According to the ruling, a notice of the presumption of Natalee's death must be published in a Jefferson County newspaper for two successive weeks.

After the last notice is published, there will be a 12-week time frame to submit any evidence that Natalee is still alive. If no evidence comes forward, the judge will then be able to declare Natalee legally dead. 

Dave Holloway filed papers to declare his daughter legally dead in June 2011. He is hoping to be able to use $2,000 of a college fund he had created for Natalee for her younger brother. 

Natalee went missing more than six years ago in Aruba during a graduation trip.
