      Myrtle Beach police respond to possible Drexel sighting

      Brittanee Drexel was visiting Myrtle Beach on spring break. She was last seen leaving an Ocean Boulevard hotel on April 25th.

      Horry County police received a call Thursday morning, about a possible sighting of Brittanee Drexel, the missing 17 year old from Rochester, NY who disappeared while on spring break in Myrtle Beach on April 25th.

      Lieutenant Chuck Capp with Myrtle Beach police says when they were notified by Horry County police about the possible sighting, they responded to the Scotchman convenience store at 5200 Socastee Boulevard.

      The person who made the sighting reported the girl was petite, blonde with dark hair in the back, used the first name Brittany on a transaction at the store, and was in a burgundy car with New York tags.

      Lt. Capp says they have reviewed surveillance tape at the store and have no indication at this time that it's Brittanee Drexel. Capp says they are still getting reports of numerous sightings every day, and they take all of them seriously.

      Capp added it appeared the girl seen at the store Thursday morning was in the early stages of pregnancy.
