Family of missing teen not giving up search after 4 years

Posted: Updated:
According to the CUE Center for Missing Persons,  members and the family of Brittanee Drexel
will meet in Myrtle Beach Thursday.
 
The family will hand out packets of the flower "Forget Me Not" seedlings in honor of her anniversary remembrance. They will also  gather at Brittanee's tree near the Market Common to hold a ceremony and  plant the first of the packets.
 
April 25, 2013 marks four years since Brittanee Drexel vanished during a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach.
 
"We will never give up hope in finding my daughter, my family and I will continue to do whatever it takes to bring forth answers", said Dawn Drexel, Brittanee's mother. "I recall when this first all began I would think to myself, I am not going to be like all the other families across the nation and wait years, not me"; "here I am four years later feeling the same uneasiness and sorrow", she added.
 
The group will meet at the Grand Park at Market Common Farrow Pkwy, Myrtle Beach, SC, 29577 at 6:30 PM on Thursday, April 25, 2013. The public is encouraged to attend and participate.
