Great post. The daughter learned her rebellious and bad behavior from her mom. The slutty look, showing all her charms, going where she wants when she wants...on someone elses dime, the drinking and partying. The parents divorce did not cause this, the mom not bothering to keep an eye on her kids did.

Dawn did not give Brittanee permission to go out of town.Kids sometimes do not listen to their parents.Unfortunately bad things can happen.Maybe you always listened to your parents.(We have all been there "come on")Her Bioligical father has been there looking for her every day since this happened.Dawn works 2 jobs and has 3 children to take care of.Unlike Chad he got fired from his job and his girlfriend supports him.He is a snake in the grass.Believe me hes no role model.

Excuse makers Anonymous, maybe you should go there!

Sometimes Kids, but in this case it was a Repeated pattern as according to John Grieco Brittanees Boyfriend, She has done this before "WITHOUT' Her parents finding out! Good Parents ask Question, call the other Parents where your kids are, Check up on them, this Dimbulb just ASSumes she was at the Beach in Rochester. Have you ever gone to the Beach in Rochester, It is COLD despit the air temp because The Water is still cold and it radiates it's cold air through winds and breezes. But this Woman was only intersted in BUYING Shoes for NEXT Year! And She's Broke! Has to work 2 Jobs. Hmm maybe if she didn't shop as much!

And Yes her Father did go to Myrtle beach, and just a couple years ago as reported in an Interview with her mother, Brittanee finally got to meet him and hang out with him. Great Father! It takes how many years to spend time with your Daughter! I would have been fighting to see her if she had been mine.

Now I'm not defending Chad, But the entire family are simply Dysfunctional! And Brittanee helped by doing her part also!

Except hers was a learned behavior from Adults who should have known better! We can only hope for the sake of the remaining 2 children that things change for them!

You people are ridiculous. Maybe if most of you would take the time to get your head out of your own a$$e$, then you could maybe see the only thing in this whole story that matters. Finding a missing 17-year old girl. Regardless of why she was at the beach or how many times it has happened before does not matter. Kids rebel against there parents. It happens...fact. If you have not told your parents one thing and done another, then you probably don't have any interesting stories or have never done anything fun. Not advocating this but making a point. It happens everywhere. For all the supporters and donations, I am sure this is a dim light in a terrible time and this is what it is all about. People helping people. You people need to stop looking in the mirror at your own situations and thinking your s*** doesn't stink and have a little sympathy for a situation that no parent wants to find themselves in. I can only hope that it turns out well and it happens sooner than later.

White kids run their parents like a cheap car. Mama should have known she was missing day one if she required her to check in everyday. She was 17! Who the hell was in charge?

So tell me then, how was Brittanee able to leave town WITHOUT anyone of her Family Members Knowing, and Never knew until they probably read it in the paper! And why didn't your Cousin EVER Check to see where Brittanee really was! You said Kids do these things and Yes you are right, So You Know, and So Should a Parent! And Thus, A Parent isn't a Best Friend, they have To Make the Hard Choices, They Have To Ensure that Their Child Is Safe and That Means Being Where They Say they Are!
And Call The Friends and Talk to An Adult! It is first Good Manners to make sure your Child is Their and Behaving! Also to let the other Adults know where to contact you in case of any problems or emergencies!
Kids will be Kids, But Parents Should Be Adults and Responsible!

I'm with you, these people want to blame anyone but the criminal. Brittnee has a right to be safe whether her mother knew, or not. If Brittnees mother would of let her go, it would of still have the same outcome. Then who would they blame.
It is best to not even respond to these kind of people. We know what they are about.

My life isn't perfect and my back yard sometimes looks like sh!t but, I always know the who, what and where when it comes to my children. Maybe you should help your cousin by telling the "real story"

You know the saying: "You can't tell a book by it's cover"

But going out of town with friends and putting themselves into harms way WAS Preventable, it had just become a routine thing for her to run away on these weekends out of town without anyone knowing or finding out! If the Parents would have been Parents and kept the Child under control, then this most likely would not have happened to her!

Granted it could happen anywhere, but highly less likely.

Yes people should be safe anywhere, you should be able to leave your doors unlocked, your valuables laying about, your keys in your car and be safe walking down the street. Facts are your not, and when you are in a situation where you do not look for danger because your Ill prepared to be out in the real world alone, bad things happen. This Child was not prepared for this, she just found it all too easy to sneak away and go out of town and put herself in dangers way without her parents knowing or finding out. And they should have asked question, not just called on the cell phone and assume things!

You donít sound so concerned for Brittanee do you? The way I see it, either you love Chad very much, are obsessed about Dawnís life or you just like to see your words in print.
If you're concerned about the whereabouts about the father from Tampa, FL why not try checking in Myrtle Beach? He's been there since he learned of her disappearance. Where have you been? If you're concerned about "Child Support" then your concern is obviously a financial one, what do you have to gain or lose from it? Is "child support" going to Brittanee back? Or is devoting your life to her return going to? Why donít you take a trip to Myrtle Beach yourself, like I have, and then youíll realize that your words and thoughts are useless, ignorant, and inflammatory.

Correction AngelFish. You must have misread about Brittanee's father going to Myrtle Beach 2 years ago. This is not a fact.
Also, are you an expert in family relations, adoptions, divorces, teen pregnancy etc?
You are wasting your time on this blog when you should probably be counseling people.

Is Brittanee not missing anymore?
Why are people on here speculating about other things?

Access to funds! That is such a pathetic excuse. When Brittanee first went missing, the people who showed up in Myrtle Beach showed up with whatever funds they could scrape together. They paid for their own expenses. They did so because that's the right thing to do. And Chad is waiting on fundraising money to finance his trip? Is this what YOU are stating? Wow, that is really a sad excuse. Do you realize it's been 4 weeks" since Brittane's disappearance? It doesn't cost THAT much to get to MB. It's not a trans-atlantic flight afterall. Really Pathetic!

The donations that are being collected that are benefiting Dawn Drexel are NOT being used for the above expenses. Dawn and all of her family and friends are GIVEN the hotel rooms, condiminiums, even houses for them to stay in. Some are for undetermined amounts of time. Dawn is also receiving the printing of posters for free as well as the T-shirts. Companies are donating these things at no charge. The funds donated greatly exceed the actual amount that Dawn and her friends and family are in need of.
Chad has asked for some financial assistance from Dawn so that he may go down to Myrtle Beach to assist in the search for Brittanee however Dawn has DENIED him any access or use of the funds.

The only concern here is the 2 children that now will have to deal with this and parents who are not equiped to even take care of them!

And a whole bunch of people making excuses for the behavior which allowed this Child to go out of town, not once byt many times without ever finding out!

And the story about the Father seeing his daughter one time when they got to hang out, that was also reported, up until then the only reference to her father was Chad! Goint to Myrtle Beach now seems Too Little Too Late!
Where he been for the past 17 years!

The repeated claims by one of Dawns family about Dawn having to work 2 Jobs and how Chad is being supported by someone else. Why work 2 jobs, where is the child support and where was it for the past 17 years?? If there was support, then why the need to work so many jobs? Living beyond ones means? Buying things for the kids so they can keep up with the Joneses? Wouldn't it have been better to be at home Supervising the Children! And Knowing Where they Really Were!

I really feel sorry for the 2 Children Left, they are the Real Victims here as the rest created it!
And Brittanee also, She did have a part in it, but she learned the behavior and didn't have anyone to keep her on the right track, and that is the unfortunate sorry fact! It's no wonder this Family is going through a Divorce, it is lacking Adults!
