HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Three digital billboards with information about 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel began running Thursday morning, according to Carol Wagner, Drexel's grandmother.
Two of the digital billboards are located along US-17 Bypass, with a third along US-501 near Forestbrook Road.
According to Wagner, another billboard will be going up near the Georgetown area with Brittanee's information.
"It just keeps everything out in the open, so that she's seen everywhere. We know Brittanee's out there, and we're gonna get her back," said Wagner.
Danny Hoots with Camel City Posters is helping to donate the Georgetown sign, while Mark T. Stocks, the General Manager of NextMedia Outdoor is donating the space for all four billboards.
Hoots says the Georgetown sign should go up at the end of next week, as soon as the sign is printed.
The Wagners say they are extremely grateful to Hoots and Stocks for their help with the donations.
Drexel was last seen in the area of 11th Avenue South and 20th Avenue South in Myrtle Beach after meeting up with friends from her hometown. Drexel was in Myrtle Beach on spring break, against the will of her mother.
Police say a number of leads surfaced on her whereabouts, but have led to a dead end.
CrimeStoppers is encouraging anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Drexel to contact the agency at 1-888-CRIME-SC, the Cue Center for Missing Persons at 910-343-1131, or the Myrtle Beach Police Department at 843-918-1963.
