FBI to hold news conference on Brittanee Drexel case

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WBTW) – The Federal Bureau of Investigations has scheduled a press conference in Mount Pleasant at 1 p.m on June 8 to discuss the latest developments on the young woman who went missing while on Spring Break in Myrtle Beach.

Brittanee Drexel was reported missing 7 years ago on Ocean Boulevard.

Drexel left her home in Rochester, New York during the spring of 2009 without her parents’ consent and traveled with a group of teenagers on spring break to Myrtle Beach.

According to the CUE center, Brittanee was abducted while walking on Ocean Boulevard after retrieving her shoes from a person staying at the Blue Water Inn. When she didn’t answer her phone, her friends called her family to let them know.

Seven years have passed since the phone call and Brittannee’s grandma says she works tirelessly to keep her memory alive.

“Celebrating her birthday as we always did. We never let her forget that we still celebrate and all the people know that we are not going to let this go. We are going to keep it out there in hopes of having some sort of closure whether she’s alive or deceased we still need closure,” said Carol Wagner.
