    Report says "Searchers say that a pair of sunglasses they found earlier this week belong to Drexel."

    Is this a confirmation or wishful thinking?
    I choose to walk to path less travelled, and that has made all the difference

    I think it might be wishful thinking. Because they were sending for DNA to see if they could match it unless they found her name on them or something.

    Unless she wore them up in her hair (I couldn't tell by the hotel pics.

    Oh that link to the boat launch you posted said accessed by Hwy 17. Isn't that also the way her phone pinged.

    Maybe sunglasses were in the pocketbook she was carrying and if they were I would guess it's possible they could have fallen out of the pocketbook as she was being taken into the area. Or maybe the contents of her pocketbook were dumped/strewn? Or maybe she did have the sunglasses actually on her somewhere - maybe 'hooked' to the pocket or waist of her shorts...glasses possibly became dislodged and no one noticed...wouldn't have made any noise as they hit the ground and were dark in color and with it being night, they wouldn't have been seen.
    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    Love never fails.

    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    Lets hope the sunglasses are hers. There was heavy rain storms after she went missing from what I remember and her pocketbook contents could have spilled out. Lets hope there is still DNA on them.

    Would hope that they do.

    Although I flashback to what Monica Caison said a few months ago about that phone... She said if someone picked it up/found it to please come forward with it (words to that effect).

    Which kind of makes me wonder if the person who did whatever to BD went back in and found that phone, removed it and/or completely destroyed it.

    I just wish the next scheduled search was sooner than Jan. But I know with the Holidays that a search now involving lots of people would be somewhat tough to pull together, IMO.

    Hopefully something else will turn up soon.

    I know hopefully something will fall into place. Maybe the phone was thrown into the river. IMO it would be risky whoever did it to go back to the scene because of all the media I would think they would stay away

    I hope that they get some answers and closure here

    it just struck me how heartbreaking it is....a pair of "knockoff" sunglasses..
    that have been out there for all these months, thru all sorts of weather, rain...
    yet they MAY the only link , the only hope of finding this poor girl...

    so very sad....it is just frightning to see the many missing people...and the families who wait for them....my thoughts and prayers are with them tonight

    Rose- is this the same area the first search was at last May? I remember the Francis National Forest. I thought it was supposedly dangerous with wild animals etc. Do people normally camp there? Also, is it mostly accessed by boat
    I camp in a lot of state parks in SC. Mostly around Huntington Beach just south of Myrtle Beach. It is $5 ea. to enter a state park in SC unless you are camping, then you just pay the camping fee. At the Santee River bridge on hwy 17 past Georgetown and before you get into Charleston county, there is a dirt road that cuts off of the hwy. There is access for boats. At this area you do not have to pay. There are also several rough dirt roads/paths that a car could travel on through the Frances Marion Forests that are long the Santee River.

    When I'm not using a small purse I keep my sunglasses in my pocketbook. I do hope that Britts friend can produce her own sunglasses. I have read that Britt and her friend may have purchased the same glasses at the same time. If Britt's friend's glasses are missing it could open up a whole other can of worms, especially if the glasses found end up being Britt's friends.

    Good thinking outside the box lonetraveler, I had not thought about it this way. If the glasses are Britt's friends, then we have a possible suspect!

    I check in here regularly but don't post often. I so wish and pray that Brit is found and brought home. You all do a great job keeping Brits case updated.
    ...and be sure your sin will find you out.

    If there is female DNA on the glasses that doesn't match Brittanee it opens up another can of worms...how to get DNA samples from the friends. Probably hard to request DNA samples from people based on the fact that a random pair of glasses found had female DNA on them. The glasses would likely have to have both Brittanee's DNA together with an unknown person's DNA for LE to have any chance of procuring DNA samples from the friends unless they could follow them around and get samples from the trash or something like that.

    Sticking to the worm theme, a whole new can of them could be opened up if they do find female DNA on them (which they probably will.. there are someone's) and the friends decline providing their DNA, yes?

    Was hoping some news about the glasses would come out today seeing as the weekend has passed. It's been a week -- hopefully we'll hear something soon.

    Prayers for Brittanee.

    P.S. I requested a "Help Find Brittanee" t-shirt for Christmas. All donations, no matter how small, help!

    Not sure about the other friends giving DNA but I am 99% sure that PB did give DNA.

    Articles about the sunglasses.

    http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2...d-search-teen/


    http://www.democratandchronicle.com/...li-teen-Drexel


    http://www.wbtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=11673108



    THese are links to some of the most recent articles about the sunglasses found this past week. unfortunately nothing concrete linking them to Brittanee though... hopefully soon though.
    God Grant me the serenity to accept those things which I cannot change, the strength to change those things which I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about people from your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

    10 days since the sunglasses were found. How long does it usually take to find/confirm DNA evidence? Will we hear if they end up not being Britt's? How will it be determined that DNA hasn't washed/worn away after 8 months?

    I don't know if we'll ever have a conclusive answer if no DNA is found.

    I wish they'd update us on something.

    From what ive heard the sunglasses wasnt found in river,was on banks of river,guess you really have know the area to understand this,these sunglasses was in perfect condition ,so only rain really would been on them,wasnt in river,,,usually if nothing been found of glasses(dna) news would reported by now,so my guess is something was found on them,but just my two cents on it,nothing to back it,,,

    Thanks for the info. Interesting to be in perfect condition. I don't know if hoping they are Brit's is a good thing but finding out what happened is better then not knowing.
