"I don't think you ever get closure on losing a child", she says, "you get resolution to what happened". He did not elaborate on what crime might have taken place.

Unmarked vehicles are parked beyond the police tape, but it's not clear what agencies are represented.

He said law enforcement arrived Thursday, and that he had no problem leaving his home about an hour ago.

Federal agents and local authorities began their search here on Friday morning, concentrating on a wooded area and open field off of Foxfire Court, just outside of Georgetown city limits.

Pleckan says she received a courtesy call on Friday from Myrtle Beach Police to let her know they were conducting a search, but she says they didn't provide any other details.

The FBI announced last summer that investigators believed Drexel was killed after traveling to the McClellanville area from Myrtle Beach in April 2009.

WBTW had a crew at the scene, but almost immediately after arriving was asked to leave because the area where the search is being conducted is private property.

Information on why authorities believe the scene in Georgetown is connected to the case was not available.

An FBI spokesman in SC told Fox Carolina that agents were involved in "investigative activity" with law enforcement partners in Georgetown County.

Frankie Faile lives just down the street where the police tape has been stretched across the road. She did not have the permission of her parents to stay at the hotel.

It is unclear why there is a search for Drexel's remains, considering the information the Federal Bureau of Investigation released last summer.

Agent Gerrick Munoz, citing a statement from a prison inmate, said Drexel was abducted, gang-raped, shot to death and thrown into an alligator-infested swamp. She says her husband has been a great source of comfort and support.

In those same court documents, the name Timothy Da'Shuan Taylor is brought up in connection with Drexel's disappearance. She was "pistol-whipped" and taken back inside.

Two shots rang out and the inmate assumed Shaun Taylor shot the girl, according to the transcript.

"Other than that, we've been given no other information and we're on standby, as is everybody else right now, to find out what, if anything, they found that would be of value to Brittanee Drexel's murder case", Conway said.
