LANCASTER, Pa. (CBS/AP) A Pennsylvania couple looking through underwater photos they took while snorkeling off the coast of Aruba believes one of the photos may reveal a skeleton on the ocean floor.

The photo, taken by John Muldowney of Manheim, Pa., has been turned over to the FBI.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reported the photo could be a human corpse, and that John Muldowney claims he has a gut feeling it's Natalee Holloway.

Natalee Holloway has been missing for almost five years. The Alabama honors student disappeared in Aruba, the same Caribbean island where Patti and John Muldowney went snorkeling.

While there has been much speculation about what happened to Holloway, no one has ever been tried in connection with her disappearance. Suspicion has hovered over Joren van der Sloot, who has twice been arrested in relation to the disappearance. Holloway has never been found.

The FBI has declined to comment on the photo.
