Location Last Seen: Bar Harbor Motel at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina during a secret Spring Break trip.
Date Located: STILL MISSING
Brittanee’s parents were going thru a divorce when she decided to sneak away with her friends without permission and head to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for Spring Break. Day three of her trip, she headed for a walk at over a mile to meet with a friend from the hotel she was staying at to another resort. Brittanee never made it back. Later, surveillance footage shows her walking out of the Bar Harbor Motel wearing a multicolored shirt, black shorts and flip-flops.
During this trip the group of friends had gone to separate locations for most of their trip so they didn’t think much of Brittanee not coming back at first. Her friends, however, weren’t friends she knew real well. They decided to stay to continue searching for her, but then went back home without her. Her boyfriend at the time was a Marine and stationed in North Carolina. He was worried after the lack of responses he got. A little blurred information here, it was either he who filed the official missing person’s report or had someone in his family do it for him.
Brittanee’s cell phone pinged in the Georgetown County area about 35 miles south of Myrtle Beach.
In 2016 FBI agents reported their believe that Brittanee was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and shot. In a press conference they reported their believe that she had been taken to McClellanville about 60 miles southwest and was murdered at some point. Investigation file shows that she was abducted, gang raped, shot to death and thrown in to an alligator-infested swamp. This comes by a witness inmate who claims he saw her during part of her abduction, saying he heart two shots.
An area in Jacksonboro, South Carolina was thoroughly searched by the FBI which is said to be four acres, and about 130 miles away from where Brittanee was last seen. According to the informant witness, it is believed this is where she was killed and buried for a period of time and later moved.
Brittanee is still missing. There is a $25,000 reward by the FBI for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.
