  • The mother of missing Chili teen Brittanee Drexel is reaching out to the family of a Rochester teen, 17-year-old Larie Butler, missing since Saturday.
    Dawn Drexel now works for the CUE Center for Missing Persons. Tuesday night, she met with the family of Larie Butler to offer support and help.
    "I want to be there because I know as a mother what they're going through, and unfortunately there's not a handbook for when your child goes missing, said Drexel. "And that's one thing I stress a lot — there are resources out there to help you."
    Next month, April 25th, will mark three years since Brittanee Drexel was last seen on spring break in South Carolina.
    Today, Rochester police held a press conference regarding Butler. They called her disappearance "suspicious."
    Butler was last seen Saturday when a friend of hers said he dropped her off near East High School after the two went to the mall. Police said they have interviewed that friend, but cannot confirm the information he gave them. They said the boy now refuses to speak to police. However, police are not calling him a person of interest.
    Police said they believe Butler is nearby, and they're asking anyone with information to come forward by calling 911.
    Butler was last seen Saturday night at about 10 p.m. near East High School, police said. She was last seen wearing a white hooded sweatshirt, jeans, grey-and-pink Nike sneakers and gold earrings. She is 5 feet tall and weighs about 125 pounds.
