Friends of missing Chili teen hold balloon launch

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.
