Authorities in South Carolina are holding a news conference to talk about the case of a New York teen who disappeared during a 2009 spring break trip to Myrtle Beach.

Representatives from the FBI, State Law Enforcement Division and local law enforcement agencies are holding a news conference Wednesday in McClellanville to talk about Brittanee Drexel.

The Rochester, New York, woman was 17 years old when she was last seen leaving a hotel on Ocean Boulevard during a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach in April 2009.

Authorities have searched surrounding counties a number of times but have not found the girl. No arrests have been made in her disappearance. Drexel's cellphone transmitted its last known signal the day after she disappeared near the South Santee River, between McClellanville and Georgetown.
