MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - The family of a New York woman who disappeared more than three years ago in South Carolina has held a candlelight vigil to mark her 21st birthday.

The family of Brittanee Drexel gathered by a tree of hope planted in her honor at a park in Myrtle Beach on Sunday night.

The Rochester, N.Y., teen has been missing since April 2009 during a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach when she was 17.

Dawn Drexel told the gathering she remembered when her daughter was a baby and remembered how special birthdays were.

Brittanee Drexel was last seen leaving a hotel on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach on April 25, 2009.

Dawn Drexel says more searches are planned for her daughter soon.
