There could be a new lead in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

An alleged witness has come forward nearly 10 years after Holloway vanished in Aruba.

Alleged eyewitness Jurrien de Jong told Inside Edition he saw Joran van der Sloot carrying Holloway’s body on the night that she disappeared.

De Jong claims he didn’t come forward years ago because he was involved in criminal activity at the time.

Van der Sloot is currently in prison in Peru serving a 28-year-sentence for the murder of another woman.

Holloway hasn’t been seen since May 30, 2005.
