In 2009, Brittanee Drexel, whose case was aired twice on AMW, was a 17-year old teenager in Rochester, New York. In April of that year, she asked for her mother's permission to travel to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to spend spring break with her friends. Despite her mother's objections, Brittanee convinced her mom she was going to a friends house and went to Myrtle Beach anyway.
Brittanee's friends last saw her at the Bar Harbor Hotel in Myrtle Beach at 8:00 PM. where she was staying. She told her friends she was going to visit her friend at another hotel and has not been seen since.
According to the Charley Project, Peter Borowitz has remained a person of interest in Brittanee's disappearance. He was the last friend to see her, but maintains his innocence to this day.
There were rumors of a breakthrough in Brittanee's case in April of 2010. Authorities announced they had three or four persons of interest, all from the Myrtle Beach area, but no arrests have been made.
There is now a potential update in the case. Human skeletal remains have been found just six miles from where Britanee disappeared. Brittanee's mother has released a statement asking to let investigators do their job and make a positive identification and has encouraged all media to re visit the case.
Of course, if you're the friends and family of Brittanee, you hope the remains are not her's. You want her to show up alive, and this is the worst case scenario. At the same time, if this is her, it is better to know than to not know.
Thoughts? This reminds me of the Natalee Holloway case except for this being in the mainland United States. I understand why Peter was scrutinized. The last person to see the missing person always has to at least be interviewed and ruled out before anything else. But it is not impossible to surmise she befriended a new male friend or friends she met while on Spring Break who turned out to not be so trustworthy.
In any case, we'll wait to see what happens with this latest development, and hope for the best for the Drexel family.
