Special Team Called in to Investigate Case of Missing New York Teenager

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- South Carolina officials have called in a special team of investigators to review the case of a Rochester, New York, teenager who disappeared nearly two years ago while on spring break in Myrtle Beach.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that members of Project Alert are expected in South Carolina on Monday to review the case of Brittanee Drexel.

Project Alert is made up of retired law enforcement professionals trained by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Drexel was 17 and on spring break when she traveled to Myrtle Beach with friends and without her parents' consent. She was last seen outside a Myrtle Beach hotel in April 2009.
