|Brittanee Drexel (17) in 2009.|
Drexel, then 17, vanished without a trace on April 25, 2009. The rising soccer star had gone away with friends on a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but without her parents' permission. She was last seen leaving the Blue Water Resort on Ocean Boulevard, the busy main drag.
For more than seven years, Drexel's case has remained a mystery and source of deep grief to her parents. Authorities have only said that they believe she was killed after being held against her will for several days.
