    MYRTLE BEACH - Sunday is the one year anniversary of the disappearance of New York teen, Brittanee Drexel.

    The 17 year old was in Myrtle Beach for spring break with friends, when police said, she went missing.

    The Drexel family was on the Grand Strand for a series of events surrounding the anniversary.

    The family hosted a 20 block march down Ocean Boulevard Saturday night.

    After the march there was a candle light vigil.

    At the vigil, people gathered to remember the missing teen.

    “I keep getting a feeling like she’s here,“ said Myrissa Drexel, Brittanee’s younger sister.

    “You wait,” said Tarah Friedman, Brittanee’s best friend. “You just wait for that phone call. You wait, continuously, and now it’s been a year later, how much longer are we going to have to wait?’.“

    Family, friends, and even strangers wrapped their arms around one another as pictures reflected on 17 years of memories.

    Candle light reflected the hope mourners cling to as so many questions remain unanswered.

    “Where are you Britt?’” said Friedman. “Why would you walk this by yourself? Why did nobody give you a ride? It’s sad, you know.“

    And as the Drexel family looks to each other for strength, tears replaced any words that can describe what young Brittanee Drexel means to so many.

    “It just hurts,” said Myrissa, as tears rolled down her face. “I know she didn’t disappear. She didn’t run away. She disappeared from someone, and I need that person to come forward, because I need my sister, badly.“

    The Drexel family thanked the nearly 200 people that attended Sautrday night’s vigil.

    The family headed back home to Rochester, New York, Sunday morning.

    I have lots and lots of pics. You're mainly looking for ones of her with family?

    I hope that Brittanee is found soon to give her family the closure that they need. Also hope those responsible are found and brought to justice. Two songs come to mine - Avril Lavigne I'm with you , and Jane Siberry Calling all angels.

    At the risk of it being too 'harsh' a consideration, I am going to suggest "If Today Was Your Last Day" by Nickelback.

    I heard it the first time on my way home early one morning last year, after another long night at the hospital with my mom, whom we knew was dying. She died two days later. A very strong message, because though I was lucky in only those last few days, many, like Brittanee and her family, are not.

    I'm home from work now. I'm gonna have some dinner and watch the baseball game ( :-D ) and then I will get to work on this video. Thanks for the song ideas! I have about 60 photos saved that I plan to use. If anyone has any specific ones they'd like included, please post them.

    Drexel’s life celebrated in Myrtle Beach
    Published: April 25, 2010
    Updated: April 25, 2010


    Today marks the one year anniversary of the disappearance of Brittanee Drexel. She was last seen at a hotel in Myrtle Beach while on spring break, last April.

    To mark the anniversary of her disappearance, Saturday family and friends held a vigil to remember her life. People also marched 20 blocks in Myrtle Beach to mark the occasion.

    These were the most moving pictures I think I have ever seen. The one that hurt the most I think is seeing that sweet little brother. Bless his little heart. I have a great nephew the same age and I could not bear to see him in this kind of pain. Thank you for posting this. Bless her family and all her friends and WS too.

    The pics of brother and sister are just so heartwrenching

    Second row, pic on the right of the little brother is heartbreaking. They all are, but just putting it in perspective, I have a six year old, who number one, adores his older brother. I have watched their relationship evolve completely independent of my own with them as 'my boys' and individually, and it makes my heart soar with pride and true unconditional love I see before my eyes...and then to imagine trying to explain to that little innocent face and heart why he could ever just be 'gone'...? So very, very sad. I hope and pray for resolution for this family.
    Yes that is when my meltdown started again. Seeing that little child's precious face just seems like such a mountain is on those little shoulders. Bless him and I pray for strength and some comfort for him and BD's little sister as well.

    On rethinking the song I just posted...I changed my mind as it sounds too much like we have given up hope if we used it. We all still have hope...we have to.

    It's been really difficult to find words this weekend. I want to say how beautiful the vigil was, how moving it was to see all of those people and the georgeous, heartbreaking photos of Brittanee and her family. I also want to say how honored I am to share my thoughts with such amazing, caring people.

    My personal vote for musical choices: The man who can't be moved~ The Script

    Here's a video. Words are pretty poignant, IMHO:

    Regardless, I'm certain any tribute will be beautiful!

    Absolutely beautiful and thought provoking...I think more for the family and the rest of us than for a rememberance of BD who so tragically was cut off from fulfilling her dreams...

    The video is almost done. I started off using pictures of solo Brittanee. Ones that I think are beautiful and show her true character. I also included some pictures of her with some of her good friends throughout the years. Many pictures of her with her family are also in there. Then, I added pictures taken throughout the past year. Some are from her 18th birthday party, a couple are from "Fill the Dome to Bring Brittanee Home," and things of that nature. Lastly, I put in some of the most touching pictures from last nights march and vigil. At the beginning I wrote a note and I said that the video is from every one at Web Sleuths. I hope you're all OK with that. If not, I can change it.

    The song I chose to use is called "My Prayer." You can listen to it on Brittanee's website:
    www.helpfindbrittaneedrexel.com

    I will upload the video to YouTube soon. There's one picture that I really want to use to wrap the whole video up, but I need to ask permission. It's a brand new one that Brittanee's sister just posted on Facebook and I think it would be a perfect ending note.

    I'll post it as soon as possible.

    Thanks so much! I will give Myrissa until morning to reply about using the picture. If I don't hear back from her I will just use another one. I'll post it tomorrow for sure.

    She did a good job picking that song I think. It is so fitting for a tribute.
