Five years ago today, Chili teenager Brittanee Drexel vanished hundreds of miles from home. 

On Friday, some of Brittanee’s friends gathered to remember her. They wore t-shirts with her picture. They also held a balloon launch in her honor.

Family and friends will honor Brittanee again this weekend. Another balloon launch is scheduled for Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at Ontario Beach Park.
