All a missing person's family asks is for answers when their loved one goes missing. Some missing cases, come with no answers at all. Perhaps it was a random abduction or criminal act. Or law enforcement simply has no suspect or clues. The family continues to search and maintain contact with law enforcement while continuing to keep the case in the public eye.
But what happens when there are answers in a case and those involved or know what happened and flat out refuse to cooperate?
One case in particular comes to mind, Brittanee Marie Drexel. She was 17 years of age, traveling with kids older then she from Rochester, NY to Myrtle Beach, SC, over spring break. On April 25, 2009, she went missing. Those who arrived with her to Myrtle Beach, made sure she had enough money for food, took the underage teen to clubs and basically watched over her.
Yet, they pack up leaving Myrtle Beach, without her? It simply does not compute. Unless of course out of fear, they are not coming forward. But still, who would put a family through such hell? I also wonder about the parents of those kids. Wouldn't you question your daughter or son who went on a trip with a person who did not return? Or is it better to live under a rock with the truth hoping nothing will ever come of it?
In this case, the kids in my opinion, hold the answers for Brittanee's family. They refuse to talk. They refuse to assist police. They refuse to look her mother in the eye. They refuse to act like adults and tell the truth.
And they refuse to give Brittanee Marie Drexel's family the peace they so rightfully deserve!
