Brittanee Drexel Remains Missing, To Be Honored
Gates Chili High School will honor teen at Graduation
Wilmington, NC – Brittanee Drexel remains missing and should be graduating this Wednesday, June 23, 2010 from her Gates Chili High School; however her family will attend in her vacancy to accept the school’s honor. “They called last week to inform me that the school would honor my daughter with an honorary diploma” said, Brittanee’s mother, Dawn Drexel. This entire ordeal is so real; I miss my daughter and ache for her to come home, “she added”. The ceremony will be held at 7:00 pm at the RIT Gordon Field House, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive Rochester, NY 14623.
Brittanee Drexel vanished on April 25, 2009 from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina almost immediately after exiting the Blue Water Inn to return to her hotel; she has not been seen since. Brittanee went to South Carolina with a group of teens from Rochester, New York against her parent’s wishes for a spring break trip planned by the group. In April of 2010 South Carolina law officials announced to the public that they had three persons of interest in her disappearance but would not elaborate any further; the teen has still not been located nor have any arrest been made in the case.
Over the past year the CUE Center for Missing Persons lead several large scale search efforts in collaboration with law officials and hundreds of volunteers from around the country to no avail, finding no sign of the missing girl. “We remain hopeful that Brittanee will be found and will continue all efforts necessary to help locate her and provide aid to her family for a resolution” said, CUE’s founder, Monica Caison. The group pleas to the community for information concerning Brittanee Drexel and encourage them to contact law enforcement or visit her web site and submit a confidential tip at http://www.helpfindbrittaneedrexel.com/
Her ears and nose are pierced. Brittanee has blonde highlights in her hair (note her hair can be any color). She was last seen wearing a white, black, teal, and gray top, along with black shorts, similar to the outfit pictured below. Brittanee was also wearing white flip flops. Since her disappearance Brittanee has turned 18 years old.

This page is for persons who either know they were abducted, or believe they were abducted, as small children, and raised by their abductors.
It is very difficult for these people to come forward publicly for fear of retaliation from their abductor. Sometimes they don’t know where to start – they can’t remember their real name, where they were born, or anything that would help them find their family.
Find My Way Home project is to provide support, raise awareness, and provide resources to help reunite long-term abductees with their birth families. The project is inspired by someone who was abducted as a child and is still searching for her birth family.
If you have any information about these cases and believe one of these individuals COULD be your child or family member, use the contact form at the bottom of this page and refer to the case number when contacting CUE. Example: Find My Way Home-Case #1 ( Type in the “Subject” box )

My mother loved to sing to me. If I close my eyes really tight and think hard I remember. I remember being in one room and her in another separated by a child guard she would sing so heavenly it would ease my discomfort of her not holding me.
That was one of only a couple of memories I have from my early years. See my mother she would never hold me again. I would never hear her sing again. We didn’t share our lives together.
Sometime in the early to mid 1960’s I was ripped away from my security. The peace, joy and comfort I had with my mother were replaced with years of deceit, confusion, fear and terror. Sure I was given three squares a day like any inmate would receive. There was a roof over my head and clothes on my back, but it was never home. Not my home. I was abducted.
I long for the day I can go home. It’s been over forty-five years but my desire is as strong now, as it was when I was torn from my mothers love.
The name Lisa is of a pretend friend of mine from childhood. Why Lisa? Could Lisa be my name? The difference in my story is that I’m living, breathing and desperately seeking to find my way home. Can you help me?
I could have been from anywhere in the United States, East Coast, West Coast, or Canada. Anywhere is possible.
Here is what I look like today, my stats:
•Age: (approx) 49
•Birthmarks/ scars: scar on inside lower right leg
•Health conditions: Asthma, Allergies, Tooth with no adult tooth underneath, high blood pressure, diabetes
