New Drexel tip leads K-9 unit to Georgetown area

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Investigators with the Myrtle Beach Police Department searched with dogs Saturday morning in response to a tip concerning the disappearance of missing teen Brittanee Drexel.

Lieutenant Capp with the MBPD said the search was conducted in a concentrated area after a tip came in after the last search.  K-9 units based in Columbia assisted in the search, but no clues were reported.

The MBPD does not plan to conduct another search soon unless new leads are brought forward.

Brittanee Drexel disappeared almost two years ago, when she was 17 years old, after leaving a resort along Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Drexel came to the Grand Strand without her parents consent.
