Update: Possible Sighting of Missing NY Teen, Brittanee Drexel in Myrtle Beach

Brittanee Drexel
Possible Sighting of Missing Teen Reported Wednesday Morning

Myrtle Beach police are conducting an intensive search of the Ocean Boulevard area near the Bar Harbor Hotel after a report Wednesday morning that Brittanee Drexel, the Rochester, NY teen--missing on spring break,--was seen on a transit bus.

Capt. David Knipes says a girl fitting Drexel's description got off the transit bus, which carries hospitality workers from Williamsburg and Georgetown counties to Myrtle Beach, around 8:30 Wednesday morning.

Witnesses said the girl was wearing light blue jeans, Crocs, a pink hoodie with Myrtle Beach on the left front area, and a dark blue shirt underneath. They said she had brown hair with blonde highlights and looked "clean and showered."

Witnesses told police she got off the bus and headed south.

Police are going through beach accesses in the area and visiting businesses to pass out fliers with Drexel's picture. Police in cars, on motorycles, on bicycles and on foot are involved in the search.

Cpt. Knipes says detectives are interviewing people on the bus and have contacted the bus company to find out where it stopped this morning on the way to Myrtle Beach.

Brittanee's mother is also holding out hope, though she still fears the worst.

"The worst thoughts are either somebody took her, somebody may be holding her against her will or she may not be alive, " Dawn said.

Calls to Peter Broswick, the last known person to have seen Brittanee, went unreturned on Tuesday, though it is being reported that Broswick has hired an attorney and isn't talking.

Myrtle Beach Police say they're working with SLED and other agencies on several leads, but they aren't speculating. The Georgetown County Sheriff's Department assisted Myrtle Beach in investigating one lead on Tuesday, though they wouldn't elaborate.

Cpt. David Knipes with Myrtle Beach Police Department couldn't answer many specifics on Tuesday but said they aren't ruling anything out.

"Until you actually have a person and know they're OK, you can't rule anything out. You know, it could be anything from being a runaway to an abduction. We just don't know right now," said Knipes.

Knipes said several investigators are tracking down all leads including reviewing cell phone records and surveillance video and tracking down interviews.

When asked what he thought of Broswick's leaving just hours after last seeing Brittanee, Knipes said he's sure eyebrows would be raised.

"I have not had the chance to interview him to find out why. Obviously going back to Rochester is a 16-17-hour drive. I don't know what his plans were. So it's hard to speculate without talking to him directly," Knipes said.
