Update: Brittanee Marie Drexel missing details from DemocratAndChronicle.com
Last Wednesday (April 22), Brittanee Drexel’s mom Dawn Drexel did not permit her to go holidays in Myrtle Beach, but did allow her daughter to sleep over a friend’s house. Only when Ms. Dawn received the call alarming her daughter missing on April 25 night, she realized Britanee had went to South Carolina.
Dawn Drexel called family friend John Hahn, 20, a Marine who is stationed in Camp LeJeune, N.C., early Sunday (April 26) and asked him to travel to Myrtle Beach and file a police report.
According to Hahn and police, Drexel walked about a half-mile from the Bar Harbor Motel where she was staying to visit a friend at the Bluewater Resort on Saturday night. She left to return to her own hotel room but never made it back.
According to witness statements from young men who were staying at the Bluewater Resort, Drexel went to their hotel room about 8 p.m. Saturday but left about 10 minutes later to return a pair of shorts to a friend with whom she had traveled. Two of the men stated that Drexel had been arguing with her friend because Drexel had been wearing her shorts and the friend wanted them back.
Dawn Drexel, who arrived Monday in Myrtle Beach, said she does not believe her daughter ran away, adding that she just “wanted to get away and have fun with her friends.”
As of the time of this entry was updated, Britanee Drexel was still not found.
