    JMHO...

    It would take me forever to explain my stance on how I think she was abducted...

    I think the person(s) that took Britt were known to the ROC group (I still can't get that quote out of my head by one of LE, which included the words, "Directly or indirectly"...). Things seem to shady to me on how the 2-3 different groups Britt was with suddenly distanced themselves from that situation (ETA: Before LE was involved).

    I think it's quite possible that Britt's phone was tossed (but how funny it is the last pings come from an area that had potential suspects, at least at one time)...but whoever had Britt kept going - in one direction or another...

    First off - <modsnip>...

    IIRC - Prior to this show, NO ONE has ever implied that the 3-4 POIs were anyone from the Rochester gang .. it was once alluded that these POIs were from the area where her cell phone pinged, which has been called "North Santee Area" , "Georgetown-Charleston county line" , "Just north of McClellanville" , "Southern Georgetown county" ... I don't have the media links handy, but I quoted them dozens of times, a couple threads back...

    Been a loooong time since I posted. There is a 3rd choice which was that it was a stranger abduction by someone not native to the area (traffickers going through, for example). I do tend to think, though, that it was someone native to the area, in the circle of those we've discussed at lenghth, if not the POI who was recently incarcerated himself. I can't discount traffickers after reading alot about them recently, though.

    My gut feeling tells me that phone was with Britt as she moved South (dead or alive, I don't know) but I have no real basis for that.

    BTW: if you put a real poll on here (don't know how to do it personally, lol!) it will keep the thread bumped cause everytime someone votes, whether they post comments or not, the thread gets bumped. Just a thought...

    This is good news. I'm quite surprised that they continue to get tips after so much time...Makes me feel like more than one someone knows something and maybe can't come forward but if they can piece these together they might have something? If it's like a puzzle, it may be a matter of continuing to move the pieces around until they find the right combination.

    Although I don't believe the ROC group is responsible for Britt's disappearance I do feel that they have not been pushed hard enough (at least I don't think they have- we really don't know for sure as LE isn't going to publicize everything but if DD feels this way I don't blame her). I think it is just extremely discomfiting that they haven't come up with more and I don't believe that they have nothing to offer. I went along with the line of them being afraid of getting in trouble for stuff they were doing (i.e. drugs, etc.) and that that was why they were keeping quiet and hightailed it out of town but after all this time that is harder and harder to buy. Even if that was the case then, I would think now, with a couple more years of maturity, someone in the group would come forward, even if just to explain exactly that- why we didn't come forward with more at the time. They could at least clear up exactly what Britt was into at the time. Was she or was she not doing alot of drugs, sleeping with someone, black out drinking, etc? I mean it didn't look like that it the video we've seen of her at all. I just feel like they could come up with some names of people she may have been with, or at least pointed them out in pictures. But then again, if it was the gang we're leaning toward, the ROC crew would have no knowledge. But why didn't they just seem more upset about it is I guess what' sticking in my craw, so to speak.

    Okay, I'm rambling now and arguing both sides of the point so I'll clam up...

    My posts are and believe it or not I've put some thought into 'em.

    From Rose's above linked article:

    "No significant finds were made during the weekend search, said Monica Caison, with the CUE Center for Missing Persons in Wilmington, N.C., which organized the search."

    Does this mean there were some insignificant finds? Or nothing at all?

    I wonder if a tip was called in based on the show, but the police don't want to admit that? The timing is certainly coincidental, especially since MM said nothing was found or nothing new came up.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Police | Public continues to report tips about missing teen Brittanee Drexel

    Tips continue to come in to Myrtle Beach police regarding a New York teen last seen in the area while on Spring Break two years ago, according to Capt. David Knipes. The tips about Brittanee Drexel increased this week after about 200 people spent the weekend searching three miles of a wooded road in Charleston County, Knipes said.[/B]“There’s nothing new to report at this time,” Knipes said Wednesday. “When searches are completed and stories are done it renews interest in the case.”

    Ok so now MBPD is downplaying what they said yesterday. Yep they were just saving face. I'm starting not to believe anything they report. I don't understand why they made a big deal about the 1 tip and now saying"oh we always get tips when searches/media happens).

    I think Britt was abducted by a local she didn't know; that said I think the ROC crew might know something or have knowledge of who. Like someone else said there is no other reason that would really make sense for them to avoid giving statements or much to LE.

    It is hard to say what involvement they might have but they sure act guilty. I'm not just speaking about the boys. I think the girls behavior is even worse.

    MLatta,

    i too believe that Britt was abducted by a stranger...but, I feel that while this person was a stranger to her, this person was well known to a member of one of the ROC groups...I think her phone was with her at first, then dumped along the way to their destination, just to throw off their trail. MOO
    HERE WE GO STEELERS!!!

    BBM-
    I wish the investigators would re-interview this bunch! Also, with all the survelliance on the street when Britt was walking you'd think someone would have picked up on something- be it a van pulling up, or one of the girls/guys from her group, something....

    I was kind of sad to see the reward as only $6000 on the NG show, is that correct? You'd think some business or something in MB would have put up some money, tourist towns don't like unsolved crimes like this...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    At one time the reward was $11,000. A minister had put up some money. I don't know if that reward had an expiration date on it like the Short family's reward money does.

    2) Do you think Brittanee WAS or WAS NOT with her cell phone as it travelled south?

    (Very anxious to see the results from this, <modsnip) IMO)
    I believe Brittanee was abducted by a native to the Georgetown-Charleston area, but due to the actions of the Rochester gang, I don't feel a possible connection to one or more can be ruled out.

    Also, I think Brittanee was with her phone while it traveled South for awhile, but not the entire time. ie. I think the phone was tossed before they reached their destination.

    I haven't posted in a while but always read here everyday and was hoping they found something this past weekend. I said a special prayer. I just finished watching the 50 days 50 nights special on Brittanee from the Nancy Grace show. A few things I wanted to post about.
    1. I think they should definitely rule out the Rochester boys and the girls immediately. Whats the hold up? 2 years later and they can't say her boyfriend is ruled out, the Rochester boys that left in the middle of the night last seen with her are ruled out, or the girls she fought with that she went down there with are ruled out? In order to move on to a stranger abduction they need to rule all these people out first. I never understood why all the above parties didn't volunteer to search for her or volunteer information. Wouldn't you want to help a girl you partied with or spent time with? Even if they weren't the closest of friends...give me a break. I've heard the one girl talk crap about Brit and her family after her disappearance too. And the one guy, not mentioning a name, lawyering up fast. Anyone of in this party have knowledge of the area her signal pinged last? Any family or friends live around there?
    2. If there was a stranger abduction, which is def possible with the history of the area it happened very fast. Could a security guard or receptionist at the front of the hotel know someone that traffics women and made a call saying a girl just left alone or something. Was all hotel staff accounted for?
    3. If she got into a car willingly if could of been from the boys she left or the girls that came to find her over the shorts. I'm surprised there wasn't any footage of her after she leaves the hotel, what is some surrounding areas that has a camera.
    I feel bad for Brit bc she wasn't with good company or friends on this trip, as a friend I would never let one of my girlfriends walk off by herself especially in a place that aren't familiar with.
    I pray something was found this past weekend and we just don't know about it. Are there any cameras on the street or gas stations they can check for a certain car, to rule out the girls or boys car in route to where her cell phone pinged last?

    Interesting results...

    It seems many of you think the perps are local, but have some sort of tie to one or more of the Rochester gang. This would explain a lot - It would explain the odd (to say the least) behavior of the Rochester folks, and might also explain LE's interest in the area near the Santee rivers.

    I've been trying to figure out what on earth they could be "searching" for.. It's been almost two years.. The only thing I can think of is perhaps an article of clothing, or the cell phone. Even the clothing doesn't make much sense to me, as it would have decomposed by now. I've always wondered why they don't use metal detectors. They have large-scale metal detectors that can be set up to check squares of land, (X,Y) Most of these locations, being very remote, seems like there wouldn't be a problem with "false positives" (i.e. - underground pipes, wiring, etc.) -- Just a thought..

    I'm ... I still feel the possibility that this whole thing is local, and those kids from Chili are just selfish brats, who have no respect for human life, and don't know how to respect authority.

    Jumping off your post Italianangel...

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong please!

    Okay, we know that PB was interviewed by the MBPD by way of some type of vid/teleconference and that he was kinda mentioned as a POI at one time. And then there are brief statements from others on at least one of the police reports - but that's just their statements, right? Doesn't mean they were questioned as in interrogated, right?

    It's been said that MBPD really can't do anything to question these people because they are back in NY? Really? Or have I missed somewhere that an MBPD investigator or two has gone to NY to question all of those who had contact with Britt in the last few hours before she went missing?

    If I'm not wrong and MBPD hasn't sent an investigator to NY can anyone explain to me why? I hear of investigators going all over the place to talk to people about cases...why not in this instance?

    I really don't understand why (here it is coming up on 2 yrs) that those who were with Britt don't agree to be interviewed by anyone. It's obvious that no one is going to prosecute them for taking a minor over state lines or contributing to the deliquency of a minor or anything else that they could possibly be charged with...or that would have already been done.

    Somehow they believe they have managed to distance themselves from everything to do with Britt...yet here we are (almost 2 yrs. later) and they are still intertwined in the theories. Until they are properly questioned and ruled out by MBPD, the very person they distanced themselves from will be with them forever...well at least until some answers are found.

    Even if they had nothing to do with Britt's disappearance, they will be forever connected in others minds and people will always wonder...did they know something? Are they hiding something?

    I, personally, can't imagine living my life wondering what people would be wondering about me in an instance such as this. But maybe it's that they simply just don't care. I would definitely want to be ruled out and would do everything in my power to make sure that happened.

    ITA with all you said, MB...

    As I said earlier, even if they were scared of getting in trouble at the time, wouldn't at least one of them have now matured to the point where they realize that if they weren't directly responsible, they are safe from punishment for the things you mentioned, and have a legal and moral responsibility to come forward to tell everything they know...the response here seems to indicate most of us think they know more than they have said...I mean these kids are moving on with their lives and maybe even starting families of their own...There comes a point when they have to grow up and wonder: What if this were my daughter some day?

    Nosy - Yes, where is there responsibility in all of this? To me this doesn't look good for friendships, future employers... (trust issues/suspicion).

    It appears to me that none of these kids (or those that are friends with them) just don't care...none of them have no empathy towards Britt, her parents, or siblings.

    Any ROC locals know what's going on in the PO situation that came up a few months ago?

    I haven't posted in awhile, but am still thinking of this case and wishing for hope. I see the searches haven't turned up anything new. There is always hope though and I believe in all the people working on this case.

    I am late to MLatta's poll, but I wanted to state my belief anyway:

    I think someone unknown to Britt kidnapped and killed her, taking her to Georgetown with her phone (unknown to kidnapper/s). I think her phone is with her purse or being held as a memento by the killer. I think the killer has killed before Britt.
    I also think that the ROC crew has nothing to do with the murder/kidnapping.
    That said, I think they showed incredibly poor judgement and made really awful decisions regarding the underage teen that was with them. I think they acted and still act strange/uncaring because they were all involved in illegal activities and they all knew that they didn't want to be caught, suspected, or named as drug abusers/users or contributors to Britt being missing. I think they were all high most of the weekend.....and I think that their drug use made them paranoid, mean, and aloof about what happened and what to do regarding Britt. I think the reason most of them are still silent on Britt's case is that many of them are still the same sort of people they were before.....still involved in the same self-interested behaviors, still partying it up and not worrying about the consequences. My opinion only!!

    MB I haven't seen anything since that first article on PO but I'll tell you what it says to me; PO has it in him to rape a girl. Which is probably what happened to Britt. This from the person who stayed in the same room with her. I can't say enough how it frustrates me this doesn't wake anyone up. Also PO lived in Lumberton, NC with JO correct? So isn't he one of the people with some knowledge of the area.

    i wouldnt be to quick to rule out Roc gang, due why would DD now request LE to question them? all this came last weekend,someone at search gave one of the Investigated a tip,so its odd that Cue,dd asking LE to get roc group to talk,and since sled,fbi is involed they can probley has/will be in NY to question them,but from my understanding two guys not in NY anymore,one moved that refused to talk to LE that first nite,,,, MBLOVER its been hush hush on PO so something rattled the search last weekend,,,and ive been talking to DD and Cue they not acting as Tclan is important anymore,more or less they searching for cell,not BD herself,,,,,and i fear the worse,but DD and her family has hold to Hope,so i dont like say she or anyone is killed,nobody truly knows,,,,

    Big hugs to Britt's Family, I had high hopes for this search ♥ I really think she will be found soon. I am so mad at myself for missing the NG show.
    No one vanishes into thin air. There are answers, we just need to find them.
