Brittanee Marie Drexel: A Prayer for Answers: Holding Onto Hope for Their Missing Daughter

The worst nightmare for any missing person's family is waking up each new day without answers.  For three solid years the family of Brittanee Drexel, 17 have prayed to God their beautiful doe eyed ray of sunshine would be found.

On April 25, 2009, Dawn Drexel, her mother received news her daughter was missing. Immediately from her home in Rochester, NY she drove to Myrtle Beach, SC.,looking for her daughter.

Brittanee had gone without her parents permission or knowledge with a group of older kids to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break.  Like most teenagers her age she'd thought her parents would never find out.

The kids secured rooms together at various hotels on the strip.  Approximately four kids to each room.  Brittanee was with her group at the Bar Harbor Hotel on Ocean Blvd., when she vanished.  She was captured and recorded on the Bluewater Resort video camera around 8:15 PM, and it was assumed she was returning back to her hotel the Bar Harbor.  But, she never made it back.  And all the kids that talked her into taking the trip and watched out for her by making sure Brittanee had money for food and always knowing where she was, suddenly threw another dagger at a distraught mother, the kids refused to take Dawn's calls when all she wanted information about her daughter.  Instead, the kids packed up and headed back to Rochester, NY, refusing to provide any information or cooperate with law enforcement.

This Saturday, the Drexel family returns to Myrtle Beach to plant and dedicate a tree in her memory.  Hopefully, they won't have to wait out another year of keeping their cells phones charged around the clock for when the call finally comes in to say Brittanee has been found.  You can bring her home.  This has been their prayer since April 25, 2009.  And the CUE Center for Missing person's have worked from the beginning enlisting their trained and certified search teams, working directly with law enforcement on numerous large scale searches to bring Brittanee home.  The Cue Center a national not-for-profit organization, is the light of hope for so many missing persons families across the county.  The Cue Center will also be in attendance at the tree dedication this weekend.

Please attend the Dedication for Brittanne Drexel out at Market Commons on the morning of April 28th 2012  (9:00AM)
Dawn and her Family will be there to help plant a tree and to dedicate a place for all to go and pray for Brittanne. The spot is at the Grand Park where the balloons will be.
This marks the 3rd year of still not knowing where Brittanne may be.
