Josh Flagg Shares New Photo With Boyfriend Andrew Beyer After Bobby Boyd Split

Nearly three months after Josh Flagg confirmed he had split from with husband Bobby Boyd, the Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles star shared his first original photo with boyfriend Andrew Beyer. On May 29, Josh posted on his grid a pic of himself with the fellow real estate agent, with their arms wrapped around each other and with a picturesque beach behind them.

He captioned the sweet snap, “I love.’

The pair have appeared together on social media before, in a more subtle way. Fans got quick glimpse of the couple back in April when Josh re-shared a friend’s Instagram Story that showed him and Andrew leaning in for an intimate moment. The following month, they both posed in a group photo taken with friends at The Beverly Hills Hotel.

Josh, 36, confirmed to E! News he was dating someone new two weeks after announcing his divorce from his husband of five years. While he didn’t name Andrew at the time, he shared that the two first crossed paths professionally five years ago but nothing turned romantic until his marriage ended.

“It came a couple of weeks after Bobby and I split,” he told E! News in March. “We went on a date and things went from there. We found that we really got along well and liked each other a lot.”

The real estate mogul also clarified that Andrew, 23, is the first person he’s dated since the breakup.

After tying the knot with Bobby—who is also a real estate agent—in 2017, Josh revealed he was back on the market in an Instagram statement on March 4.

“This was not a rash or impulsive decision,” Josh explained in his post. “We have been very thoughtful before coming to this conclusion.”

He continued, “It was not a lack of love but rather the two of us growing in different directions and wanting different things for ourselves. I care deeply about Bobby and have nothing but love and respect for him. I want how we separate from each other to represent that.”

All the Leads That Proved to Be Letdowns in the Natalee Holloway Case
Natalee Holloway vanished 17 years ago and, despite her parents’ tireless efforts and worldwide coverage, a void remains in lieu of definitive answers.

When he was informed in 2016 that shards of bone had been found in Aruba, Dave Holloway could only hope that DNA testing would prove the remains were of his daughter, Natalee Holloway, who went missing in 2005 while on a high school graduation trip to the Caribbean island. It would be sad, and it would be disturbing, but at least it would be an answer in a case that remains largely composed of questions.

“We thought, well, maybe we’ve got something here, because I’ve had so, so many false leads, people who’ve just wanted to take you for a ride,” Dave told E! News in May 2021. “I thought, OK, this may be a new lead… Let’s go on and see if we can develop it. That turned into a situation a little bit bigger than what I’d anticipated.”

It took a year and a half of working under the radar with the help of an informant to locate the spot where the remains were found, behind a house that had been previously mentioned over the course of the sporadically eventful investigation.

But that October it was revealed that three of the pieces were animal bones, and while the fourth was human, the mitochondrial DNA wasn’t a match to a sample provided by Natalee’s mother, Beth Holloway.

“Out of the four individual bone samples, only one was found to be human,” forensic scientist Jason Kolowski, who tested the samples, explained to Oxygen, which chronicled Dave’s journey with private investigator T.J. Ward as they followed what felt at the time to be their most promising lead in years.

“We don’t know if the person is male or female,” Jason added. “We don’t know how old that person is. We don’t know how long that person has been dead.”

After she disappeared, the investigation into Natalee’s disappearance carried on in fits and spurts, with light occasionally appearing at the end of the tunnel, only to be snuffed out at the first whiff of closure. In the meantime, books have been written, Lifetime made two movies about the case, news-magazine shows have covered it top to bottom, and every theory in the book has been floated—including that Natalee is still alive, or at least was for years after the events of May 30, 2005, transpired.

Whatever those events were, exactly.

Despite all the media attention and so many law-enforcement hours spent trying to find out what happened, definitive answers have remained out of reach. But numerous times, authorities and Natalee’s family seemed to be getting closer. “We always felt like with every lead, with every tip, it was always as if we were about to get her,” Beth previously told 20/20. “They just always turned up nothing.”

Here, all the twists that turned into letdowns over the course of 17 years…

Natalee Holloway Disappears
Natalee Holloway, 18, grew up in the well-heeled Birmingham, Ala., suburb of Mountain Brook. The teen was the oldest child of Dave and Beth Holloway, who divorced in 1993. She and her younger brother, Matthew, lived primarily with Beth. Natalee was an honors student and member of the school dance team and American Field Service, helping exchange students adapt to life in the U.S. She had earned a full academic scholarship to the University of Alabama and planned to study pre-medicine.

She was also a regular churchgoer, according to her uncle Paul Reynolds, who told the AP days after his niece went missing, “Natalee’s naive. She hasn’t dated a lot. She doesn’t party a lot.”

After graduating from high school on May 24, 2005, the teen went to Aruba for a celebratory trip with more than 100 other classmates. “We were on the beach. We stayed outside all day. You’d usually take a nap, get dressed, go eat dinner, and then go to one of the bars. Come home whenever you wanted,” friend Claire Fierman told NBC’s Dateline in 2008.

They were due to return to Alabama on May 30, but Natalee didn’t show up for the flight home. Her passport, cell phone and packed bags were still in her room at the Holiday Inn. “Natalee being late is a tip-off,” her aunt Marcia Twitty told reporters, noting how reliable her niece was.

When the plane took off without her, classmate Laraine Watson told Dateline, “It felt like I was leaving something behind. It was just a horrifying feeling knowing that she was supposed to be there and she wasn’t.”

Remembering the phone call that informed her Natalee had missed her flight, Beth told Dateline, “I knew instantly when I received that call that just from Natalee’s history and character and just her record, I knew instantly that she’d either been kidnapped or murdered. There was no hesitation. Absolutely none. Absolutely none.”

She and Dave, with respective friends and family members, flew to Aruba immediately.

Investigators soon determined that Natalee was last seen by classmates leaving a popular nightspot called Carlos ‘N Charlie’s with soon-to-be household name Joran van der Sloot, then 17, and two brothers, Deepak Kalpoe, 21, and Satish Kalpoe, 18.

Seven Arrests, No Charges
When Aruban authorities first questioned the Kalpoe brothers and van der Sloot, they said they took Natalee to California Lighthouse, near Arashi Beach on the northwest tip of the island, to shark-watch, then dropped her off at her hotel at around 2 a.m., the morning of May 30.

Two former hotel security guards were arrested on June 5 after Joran and the Kalpoes claimed they saw a guard approaching Natalee outside her hotel before they drove off. The young men were arrested on June 9 and held on possible charges of first- or second-degree murder and kidnapping resulting in death. Aruban Attorney General Caren Janssen explained that they had been hoping that one of them would lead police to definitive evidence and that’s why they weren’t taken into custody right away.

The beach was searched on June 14, and Joran’s house was searched the next day, where investigators seized two vehicles, computers and cameras. “You have to build up an investigation. You can’t just go in there like a cowboy,” Janssen told reporters in explaining the perceived delay.

The guards were released June 18, and one told police that a Kalpoe brother had told him while they were both locked up that they hadn’t taken Natalee to the hotel, but rather he and his brother had left her with Joran at a beach near the hotel.

Police also questioned Paulus van der Sloot, Joran’s father, and arrested him on June 22. Multiple reports also noted the arrest of Steve Gregory Croes, a party boat DJ, in connection with the case; both Croes and the elder van der Sloot were released on June 26.

Satish Kalpoe admitted to lying to police at first; he changed his story to say he and Deepak dropped both Joran and Natalee off at the hotel and that was the last they saw of them. Meanwhile, a gardener at the Aruba Racquet Club gave police a sworn statement that he saw all three men in a car near the club at around 2:30 a.m., when the Kalpoes claimed they were already home.

Aruban police, Dutch marines, FBI agents and thousands of locals combed the area, but that was on land. Ultimately a volunteer group dispatched divers and sonar equipment on June 25.

Six weeks after she vanished, the family’s offered reward for Natalee’s safe return was $200,000, and the reward for information that could help lead to the truth was $100,000. By the end of July, the reward was up to $1 million if Natalee came home alive.

Parents’ Worst Nightmare
Upon arrival on Aruba, Beth Holloway went to the Holiday Inn to ask questions about a guy named Joran van der Sloot, who some of Natalee’s friends had met. When the night manager knew right away who that was, Beth asked to see casino security footage and then called police. Everyone went to Joran’s house, where his dad Paul kept close watch as authorities questioned his son.

With Beth and a growing number of interested parties along, Joran guided authorities back to the hotel to illustrate where he dropped Natalee off, and claimed that she fell and hit her head getting out of the car.

Dave Holloway remembered to Dateline being assured by a cop that sometimes tourists just missed their flights, and his daughter would probably turn up in a few days.

When Joran and the Kalpoes were arrested, Dave and Beth felt that had to be case closed, but that obviously turned out not to be true. Furthermore, as days and then weeks went by, it stated to sink in that Natalee in all likelihood wasn’t coming home.

Beth stayed in Aruba for two months, leaving a few weeks before the Kalpoes, who had been released on July 4, were arrested again on Aug. 26. The brothers and Joran were all released Sept. 3.

Divers from the Aruba Search and Rescue Foundation searched again in late August after getting a tip that a radar machine had detected human bones about a mile off the coast, but they came up empty.

In 2008, Beth told Dateline, “I mean, I’ve had calls since, you know, I couldn’t even— just—you know? I’m… from ‘Natalee’s in a freezer at the van der Sloot house’ to ‘Natalee’s in a boat in Venezuela or Colombia.’ It was hell at first.”

No Longer a Rescue
In March 2006, 10 months after Natalee disappeared, Aruban authorities said witnesses had told them the teen was drinking heavily that night and had drugs in her possession, though no one said they saw her taking any of them.

“We feel strongly that she probably went into shock or something happened to her system with all the alcohol—maybe on top of that, other drugs, which either she took or they gave her— and that she… just collapsed,” Gerald Dompig, deputy chief of police for Aruba, told 48 Hours Mystery.

Believing her to be dead, they were searching the beach where Joran claimed he last saw her, as well as a salt pond near her hotel, for forensic evidence.

All the while, Joran’s story kept changing.
