Lifetime Movie Network has announced pre-production on The Natalee Holloway Story, which will air sometime next year.

The TV movie will dramatize the story of the 18-year-old Alabama native who disappeared in May 2005 during a high school trip to Aruba, reports Variety. Although no body was ever found, Holloway's family believes she was murdered.

Senior VP in charge of original movies, Tanya Lopez, says the network will be "working closely" with Holloway's mother, Beth Twitty, "to raise awareness of how to keep our children safe at all times."

The movie is said to focus on a love story — but one between mother and daughter.

No word on who will play Natalee or her mother.
