Ocilla - Beth Holloway Twitty, the mother of missing teen Natalee Holloway, will help look for Tara Grinstead.

The Alabama woman, who's made international headlines since her daughter disappeared in Aruba, will arrive in Ocilla, Georgia this afternoon.

Twitty says she wants to help search for Tara because so many people reached out to her after her daughter disappeared in May. She also says she feels a special affinity for Tara Grinstead because, like Grinstead, she is a school teacher.

The 31-year old Grinstead disappeared October 22nd. This weekend, a huge foot search is planned with 500 volunteers.

The search starts at eight o'clock Saturday morning at the Ocilla Command Center.
