A traffic ticket shows that a person of interest in the case of missing New York teenager Brittanee Drexel was near the location the teen was last seen the day after she disappeared.

Raymond Moody,Georgetown, was pulled over by Surfside Beach Police Officer Steve Brode at 3:21pm April 26, 2009, according to the ticket obtained by News 13.

The ticket shows Moody was traveling 45 miles per hour in a 30 miles per hour section of 16th Avenue North and Cherry Drive in SurfsideBeach.

It also shows Moody was driving a Harley Davidson motorcycle when he was pulled over.

The ticket indicates Moody paid a $133 fine and therefore did not need to show up to the set May 20, 2009 court date.

In August 2011 Georgetown County Sheriff's deputies and South Carolina Law Enforcement division agents conducted a search for clues in the Drexel case at the Sunset Lodge Apartments in Georgetown.

Authorities searched Apartment 22 which SLED said Moody lived in “at or around the time Drexel disappeared."

SLED also confirmed Moody lived in Georgetown at that time and had previously been arrested and convicted on numerous charges including committing a lewd act with a minor under the age of 14, sodomy with a child under the 14, rape, and kidnapping to commit rape in California.

A woman who claimed to be Moody’s girlfriend said in August that she was with Moody on the night Drexel disappeared in 2009 and that she and Moody were no where near Myrtle Beach at that time.

In August Moody said he knew nothing about the missing teen’s disappearance.

Moody is a registered sex offender, according to records.

Brittanee Drexel went missing while on a spring break trip to Myrtle Beach.
