NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -
North Charleston Police are investigating a tip that a missing woman was sold to pay a drug debt.
Brandy Hanna went missing in 2005.
Her former boyfriend Garland 'Zeke' Lankford was charged Tuesday with obstruction of justice for lying to investigators.
The son of Michael McAdams Sr. says his son lived with Hanna before she left him to be with Lankford.
McAdams says he's been given information that Hanna was sold to drug dealers.
"I was told that Brandy was collateral for Zeke Lankford's debt. Whether it's true or not I don't know, but I was told she was sent to Houston to pay off the debt," McAdams said Wednesday.
