 Police in South Carolina are ruling out a possible sighting of a missing teenager from Chili on Thursday morning.

They're looking at surveillance video from a convenience store in Socastee, South Carolina.  That's about 8 miles inland from Myrtle Beach.

Police said that a young woman matching Brittanee Drexel's description came into the store, and that she was using the name Brittanee.  Police said she had a burgundy car with New York tags.

Upon closer inspection, police said the woman in the video was visibly pregnant, and said that it's not Brittanee Drexel.  Police in Myrtle Beach say they get several tips like this a day, but none have panned out.

The 17-year-old Drexel was last seen on the evening of Saturday, April 25th.  She was vacationing on spring break in Myrtle Beach.
