PNG-Crystal Soles Missing 9 years today


Families remember loved ones that are missing


ANDREWS, SC (WPDE) – Four families gathered Saturday afternoon in Andrews to remember their loved ones that have disappeared.

Crystal Gail Soles of Andrews has been missing since 2005. Her mother organized the event calling it a Walk of Remembrance.

The families of Brittanee Drexel, Brandon Graves, Crystal Soles, and Gabbiee Swainson gathered with posters in hand, hoping to keep hope alive for their loved one’s missing person cases.

“You’ve got to keep their name and their face out there, every missing child, cause it could bring in tips and leads for their case,” said Dawn Drexel.

All of these missing person cases have been involved with CUE Center for Missing Persons. Monica Caison is the founder of CUE and says it’s important for families who are missing someone to support each other.

“Whenever someone gets missing within our organization, we actually build the base underneath them with other families,” said Caison.

Saturday’s event was called a walk of remembrance, but the families also say it was one of hope.

There will be a candlelight vigil tomorrow at 7 p.m. for Brittanee Drexel at the site of her tree planted on Farrow Parkway at The Market Common.

On Friday, October 12 there will be an event for Brandon Graves at the halftime of the Dillon High School football game.
