The North Charleston Police Department says that new information on a missing woman has led investigators to the old Navy base in North Charleston.

Following investigative information in the search for Brandy Hanna, detectives began searching the area of the old Navy Base and located a sneaker that interested detectives.

Recently, detectives and State Archaeologist Jonathan Leader searched the area with scientific instruments.

Next week, the archaeologist and team of volunteers will travel to North Charleston to conduct a more thorough search of the area, which is within a secure location of the old Navy base. Authorities say the search is based on investigative information and there is no physical evidence confirming that it is Brandy Hanna's shoe that was found.

According to investigators, Hanna disappeared on May 20, 2005 after coming home from work at an Alex's Restaurant.

Hanna's mother holds a vigil each year on the anniversary of her daughter's disappearance. Friday night's is at  Alex's Restaurant on Dorchester Road where Hanna used to work.
