Vigil held in Myrtle Beach for Brittanee Drexel

Created: 04/25/2014 11:06 PM WHEC.com

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

In 2009, 17-year-old Drexel went to Myrtle Beach without telling her parents and never came home. Brittanee's mother, Dawn, has since moved to Myrtle Beach to search for her. 

On Friday night, a vigil was held in Myrtle Beach for Brittanee. Dawn Drexel organized this remembrance tonight, marking what has surely been a long and difficult five years for her and her family.
