LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — A newspaper is reporting that a Lancaster County couple believes an underwater snapshot they took off the coast of Aruba reveals human remains on the ocean floor.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reported Thursday that the photo taken by John and Patti Muldowney of Manheim last fall has been turned over to the FBI.

Patti Muldowney took the shot while snorkeling near the Caribbean island. Only later did the couple notice one photo shows what could be a human corpse or skeleton.

John Muldowney says he has a gut feeling it may be Natalee Holloway, the Alabama honors student who disappeared in Aruba nearly five years ago.

The FBI has declined to say what, if anything, it’s doing with the picture.
