Chili, N.Y./Myrtle Beach, S.C. - The family of a missing girl is hoping for new leads.
Brittanee Drexel disappeared 3 years ago while on spring break in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and her mother is not giving up the search for her.
Drexel's 21st birthday is next Sunday. Her mother will spend it at a vigil in Myrtle Beach, S.C. - praying for answers to her daughter's disappearance.
Dawn Drexel believes someone knows what happened to her daughter. In a letter issued to the media she relives the days after her daughter went missing, the panic of repeatedly calling Brittanee's cell phone only to get the voice mail. Drexel maintains the friends that were with Brittanee in Myrtle Beach know more then they have ever told officials.
“I want to find my daughter,” said Dawn Drexel, “I'm not going to give up looking for her or find out what happened to her. Somebody had to see something. A lot of people were down there, my daughter is there for 60-hours and all of a sudden she vanishes not seen or heard from again. It's just not right.”
Drexel is traveling to Myrtle Beach next Thursday. There's a benefit for her daughter on Friday and a vigil will be held Sunday on Brittanee's 21st birthday. Drexel says she will be meeting with detectives while she's down there.
Raymond Moody, who served time for sexually abusing seven girls, was named a person of interest in Drexel's disappearance, but has never been charged.
