NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - State archaeologists will be back at the Old Navy Base Tuesday, digging for new leads in a six-year old disappearance case.
Brandy Hanna was last seen in 2005 after leaving work at Alex's Restaurant on Dorchester Road.
On Monday morning, a team of archaeologists led by USC professor John Leader started a three-day dig searching for clues in an area near the Cooper River.
The dig site is at a secure location on the old Navy base without access to the public.
A team was seen searching an area not far from River Front Park. The archaeologists had shovels and other tools to investigate.
Last week, North Charleston police officers got a new lead when they found a sneaker near the base. Officers haven't said if the shoe belongs to Hanna.
Hanna's mother, Donna Parent, told spoke last week about how hard it has been dealing with her daughter's disappearance.
"The last six years have been agonizing hell," Parent said.
