Brittanee Drexel pictured above vanished on April 25, 2009 leaving, according to video footage
Coming off main highway 17 we drove approximately 6 miles down unpaved, dirt roads until we reached old Georgetown road. For a few miles trailers, cars, horses, SUV 's and equipment lined up neatly along the side of the road. As we drove closer to the temporary command center you saw horses being prepared to search. And hundreds of law enforcement and volunteers preparing in teams to head out into the heavily wooded mapped out area's.
Below is where searchers gathered before heading out in teams of 2, 4, or 6
Gathered was over 200 trained volunteers from the C.U.E. for Missing Persons, North Carolina Canine Emergency Response Team, Sheriff's from Georgetown, Myrtle Beach and surround counties, law enforcement from Florida and other states, SLED and other mothers and fathers whose own children are still missing joined forces to search the heavily wooded area for over 2 days. Some searched by foot, with cadaver dogs, while other's used ATV's and horses to comb a specific mapped out area coordinated by Monica Caison.

The experience of just being at the search site and witnessing a spark of hope in the eyes of the missing teenager's parents and grandparents spoke volumes to what the C.U.E. center for missing persons facilitates 365 days a year behind the scenes for families across the country.
