Search won't stop for Brittanee Drexel

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - People close to the Brittanee Drexel case said the newly released details from the FBI about her disappearance won’t stop them from doing what they have been since they found out she went missing.

“I’ll never give up in trying to find her,” said Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center for Missing Persons.

Caison said Brittanee’s mother wants to keep looking for her daughter. She said Dawn Drexel has requested searches, but Caison said she doesn’t have any information on any coming up.

“She doesn’t want people to give up,” Caison said. “She still wants her found. We support that one thousand percent and we will continue until we can hopefully bring that to a resolve for her.”

Caison said a search doesn’t need to stop just because investigators declare a missing person dead.

“I do believe that every missing person can be found somehow or another whether it’s enough for DNA, whether it’s enough for an arrest or what have you,” she said.

She said information helps a family eventually reach a point of resolution, which comes when they find out where the missing person was and is now.

“You cannot grieve any empty space,” Caison said.

Robin Holley, who has done fundraising for Brittanee and the CUE Center for Missing Persons, said she continues to hope Brittanee isn’t gone yet.

She said she had heard nearly all of the FBI information previously. The piece of information she hadn’t heard before was comments from Timothy De’Shaun Taylor’s mother. She said it’s sad if someone is just trying to pin something on him, so she said she does feel for her because he is her child, just like Brittanee is Dawn's and she said he hasn't been charged.

Holley said until Taylor is charged, she can’t say or do much.

She said it’s all hearsay right now and more evidence still has to come out, but she said she does hope this information gets people talking about Brittanee’s disappearance, so someone could come forward.
