      Brittanee Drexel's family to mark anniversary of her disappearance

      Brittanee Drexel in 2009

      The family of Brittanee Drexel, who disappeared on spring break in Myrtle Beach in 2009, will join with members of the CUE Center for Missing Persons to mark the four year anniversary of the last time she was seen.

      The public is invited to Grand Park at Market Common on Farrow Parkway at 6:30 pm on Thursday, April 25.

      The family will be handing out packets of the flower "Forget Me Not" seedlings in memory of Brittanee.

      They will gather at a tree planted last year on the anniversary to plant the first of the flower packets.

      "We will never give up hope in finding my daughter, my family and I will continue to do whatever it takes to bring forth answers", said Dawn Drexel, Brittanee's mother. "I recall when this first all began I would think to myself, I am not going to be like all the other families across the nation and wait years, not I am four years later feeling the same uneasiness and sorrow."
