CHILI, N.Y. (WIVB) — In April of 2009, Rochester-area teen Brittanee Drexel, 17, went missing while on Spring Break in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Authorities believe that during one of the last times she was seen, which was on a surveillance camera, Drexel was headed back to the motel she staying at. It is believed that she never made it there.
“We believe she traveled from the Blue Water (an inn,) here, to this general area, and was here for several days,” officials said in McCllelanville. “We are confident in the fact that she was here.”
Just last month, officials with the FBI stated that they believe Drexel is dead and offered a $25,000 reward for information on her disappearance or a suspect.
On Thursday, police said that the last person to see Drexel was Peter Brozowitz, a friend of her’s from Rochester, according to CBS contributors.
According to police, Drexel went out to meet Brozowitz and his friends on a beach near the Blue Water before she went back to their room for about ten minutes.
After this, Drexel headed back to her motel to return clothes to a friend. She was never seen again.
Brozowitz and his friends are not suspects in her disappearance.
According to the FBI, there is evidence that Drexel was in Georgetown, McClellanville and North Charleston against her will.
At this point, officials say they need one more piece of information in order to arrest someone. Only the FBI and a suspect know that information.
