In 2009, seventeen year old Brittanee Drexel disappeared while on spring break in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, going without her mother’s permission.

On the night of April 25, she walked out of a hotel and was never seen or heard from again.

Brittanee’s mom, Dawn, started a foundation to provide resources to families of missing teens and victims of human trafficking. Please visit and support her foundation if you can.
