Missing persons Drexel, Malinowski remembered this weekend

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The CUE Center for Missing Persons was in the Myrtle Beach area Friday and will be in Aynor Saturday as part of a national tour to bring awareness to dozens of missing people.

Brittanee Drexel, missing from Myrtle Beach for over four years, was remembered Friday night at the Blue Water Hotel at 2001 Ocean Boulevard, where she was last seen. The event was hosted by her mother, Dawn Drexel, and began at 7 p.m.

"It's very important that people know that I'm not giving up. I'm not gonna give up until I find my daughter," Dawn Drexel said.

"Every person deserves to be found if they're missing, if they're away from their families. My sister doesn't deserve this at all. It's gonna be five years next April and we'll continue to find her until we have her come home safe to us," Brittanee's Sister Myrissa Drexel said.

October 7 marked Brittanee Drexel's 22nd birthday. She was 17 years old when she traveled to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break in 2009. Her mother thought she was vacationing with friends somewhere closer, and realized she was missing when she received a call from her equally concerned boyfriend.

There will also be a event for Zack Malinowski, a 19-year-old Aynor man who was last seen on August 25. The event will be at 10 a.m. at Aynor Park; attendees will release balloons for Malinowski.

The family is still offering a $2,500 cash reward for anyone who can provide information that leads to his whereabouts. On September 2, the 1996 Chevrolet Beretta he was last seen driving was found burned on Valley Forge Road near Aynor.

Both events are part of the North Carolina-based CUE Center for Missing Persons "Road to Remember Tour," which is touring the country and holding rallies in cities where missing persons cases remain unsolved.
