Police announce missing women, Brittanee Drexel and Crystal Soles, featured on deck of cards

Tonya Root – troot@thesunnews.com

Friday, Apr. 23, 2010

The missing women are featured in a deck of cards that are sold to prison inmates throughout the state through a program by crime stoppers. Drexel also was featured in a deck of cards released in Florida.

Brittanee Drexel was last seen on video surveillance leaving the Blue Water Hotel on Ocean Boulevard while on spring break in the area on April 25, 2009. Dozens of searchers have scoured Myrtle Beach and wooded areas in Georgetown and Charleston counties looking for clues in the teen’s disappearance.

Searches began about nine months ago after officials learned Drexel’s cell phone gave off its last known signal on April 26 around U.S. 17 Bypass and the South Santee River in the Georgetown County.

Also from the Georgetown County area, the case of Crystal Soles, who was 28 when she was last seen Jan. 24, 2005 at Shaw’s Corner Store in Andrews, is featured in the card campaign.

The cards were unveiled Friday and families of the women will gather along Ocean Boulevard today for a march and candle light vigil to mark the year anniversary since the Drexel was last seen in Myrtle Beach.

“It’s hard to come back down here, very emotional,” said Dawn Drexel, Brittanee’s mom. “I think it’s wonderful to get her name and face out there. We need information about her. We’re very thankful to them for putting her in that deck of cards.”

Brittanee’s dad, Chad Drexel, said he hopes the cards, which are sold in state prisons and in some county detention center, will generate some information that can be left anonymously with state crime stoppers.

“We’ll do anything to help to bring our daughter home,” Chad Drexel said. “Criminals know criminals. Someone knows something out there.”

More than 20 people came from the Rochester, N.Y., area where Brittanee lived to support her family. Those supporters included two of Brittanee’s friends.

“We came to show her that we care and for support,” said Jessica Nice, who has known Brittanee her entire life. “We want to show her we haven’t given up yet.”

Chad and Dawn Drexel said the year since their daughter was last seen has been “hell.”

“It’s been a roller coaster ride of endless nightmares,” Chad Drexel said. “I just want to wake up and it’s not there, not real.”

“The not knowing where she is or is she hurt, is she not alive has been the worse,” Dawn Drexel said. “We need someone to come forward with that key piece of information so we can get some resolution to Brittanee’s case.”

Soles’ mother, Gail Soles, said she understands how the Drexel family feels as the anniversary approaches.

“We know what it’s like. Lord, I wish I could find my child, just to have closure. It’s hard. It’s really hard not knowing,” Gail Soles said. “Somebody please come forward and give us some more information. Let us bring her home because we really need closure.”

Monica Caison, director of the Community United Effort Center for Missing Persons, said the cards do generate leads in cases.

“I know it solves cases and it brings forth tips,” Caison said. “This is reassurance that no one has forgotten them. This is just another outlet to get their information out there.”

Anyone with information about Brittanee Drexel’s disappearance can call Myrtle Beach police at 918-1300 or go to the Web site at www.helpfindbrittaneedrexel.com.

Anyone with information about Crystal Soles’ disappearance can call Andrews police at 264-5223 or go to the Web site at www.findcrystalsoles.com.

He wasn’t at the facility more than a couple of weeks before the facility called his mother, telling her that Robert had run away.

Robert’s mother says the initial report of his disappearance described him wearing a blue plaid shirt and black jeans, but weeks later, those clothes, along with Robert’s other belongings, were mailed home to her. She says she got both pairs of Robert’s shoes returned, and was confused as to how she could have possession of the clothes he’d been wearing when he disappeared. Many questions remained unanswered in regards to his case. His case remains unsolved.

The CUE Center for Missing Persons would like to bring awareness to the thousands missing across the nation of those who remain missing and that families still have hope of a recovery in recognition of the recently rescue missing girls: we request that you revisit cold cases in your area and shed light on them. Thank you

Kidnapped teens found decade later

Editor’s note: Monica Caison is the founder of CUE Center for Missing Persons, a nonprofit organization that advocates and searches for the missing and provides support for their families.

(CNN) — Miracles do happen. Like this week, when Amanda Berry, Georgina DeJesus and Michelle Knight escaped their captor after being missing for a decade.

It turned out they were locked away and alive the entire time.

Their fortuitous escape is like a ray of light and reminds us that sometimes good things do happen. A cry for help came out from the walls of silence, and a member of the community responded, aiding in the rescue. The selfless act of a total stranger only reinforces that the public will help when needed.

But their story is unusual. Many missing persons who have been missing for a long time are still not found. We should urge all communities to play an integral part in assisting law enforcement in investigations about missing persons.

We live in a world filled with powerful technology that has enabled us to communicate faster and better, yet we seem to lack the simple face-to-face meeting that must take place when searching for clues and information in any type of investigation.

At-a-glance: Still missing in the U.S.

The old “knock and tell” method remains an effective tool today. It must be used when searching for our missing persons. When you talk to someone in person, you can read them better by registering their expressions, gestures and other factors. Sometimes, those things could yield clues. This door-to-door technique can make the difference in finding someone in hours, days or years.

There’s no doubt that trying to find missing persons requires a tremendous amount of work. Classifying cases as “runaways” or “walk-aways” does nothing to help the outcome of any given case. If anything, it could hinder and slow the process. The general public normally will not have a heightened sense of concern for those believed to have left on their own.

Are two missing women linked to Castro?

Police, community at odds in Cleveland

 

The sense of urgency and hitting the ground running from the start could be the difference in many missing person cases. A case can be misdiagnosed upon closing; this is when we confirm that the labeling provided a wrong direction. The word “missing” should be enough and important; the alert(s) system in place such as the Amber/silver provide an additional emergency notification seeking the public’s help.

The myth of “a waiting period” to report a missing person still lingers, and many families are turned away by officials and forced to begin their journey on their own without any direction or support. Due to heavy caseloads, law enforcement officials are frequently not afforded the continuous training and education that could help them in the search for a missing person.

Abused but alive: Lessons from survivors

All too often, information is not provided to victims suffering a missing loved one in the onset, such as where to file the report and what agencies can provide support services and help with advocacy and on-the-ground services. These are all key issues that need to be addressed as we move forward to bring home those missing in our country.

Cold cases and unidentified persons need to be revisited and reopened. All cold cases need to be updated and looked at again with a keen eye on what can be done to aid in a recovery.

As we rejoice in the happy ending for the three women and their families and friends, we need to be reminded that there is still much work to be done in the world of the missing.

We need to remember that there are thousands of people who are still seeking resolution and waiting for answers concerning their loved one. As a community, we need to come together, take notice and become aware of what happens in our homes, neighborhoods, towns and cities. And we need to always remember that “every missing person is somebody’s child.”
