MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Officials with the CUE Center for Missing Persons are initiating an awareness campaign for a missing 17-year-old New York teen who disappeared in Myrtle Beach in April.
The aunt of Brittanee Drexel, Kerri Drexel, has arrived in Myrtle Beach Friday to help distribute posters of the teen in an effort to remind the public she is still missing.
Drexel was last seen in the area of 11th Avenue South and 20th Avenue South in Myrtle Beach on April 25 after meeting up with friends from her hometown. Drexel, who was 17 at the time, was in Myrtle Beach on spring break, against the will of her mother.
Contact was lost with Drexel and family in New York on Saturday evening, when authorities say she disappeared.
Since her disappearance, police and regional law enforcement agencies have followed a number of leads, but all have turned into dead ends. Myrtle Beach Police suspended an active search for Drexel in June, following several weeks of no progress in the case. Investigators extended their search as far as Charleston County, along the Santee River and Coastal Reserve.
CrimeStoppers of the Lowcountry continues to offer a reward for any information on Drexel's whereabouts. Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Drexel is urged to contact the agency at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
