CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A New York church is offering a $5,000 reward for information about a teen missing in South Carolina for more than a year.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Victory Christian Church in Albany, N.Y., has offered the reward for information about Brittanee Marie Drexel.
The Rochester, N.Y., teen was 17 when she was last seen April 25, 2009, on a hotel security camera in Myrtle Beach. She had gone to the South Carolina coast on vacation without her parents permission.
Dawn Drexel says she hasn't given up hope that her daughter is alive.
Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry has offered a $1,000 reward in the case.
Myrtle Beach Police Lt. Chuck Capp says officers still think they will be able to solve the teen's disappearance.
