The daughter of the suspect in the disappearance of a Richland County girl has been charged in the case.
Sheriff Leon Lott says the cellphone of 15-year-old Gabbiee Swainson was found last month by a delivery driver behind a grocery store in Myrtle Beach.
And Lott says investigators determined that 27-year-old Dominique Grant (pictured) was there just days before the phone was recovered.
The sheriff contends Grant placed the cellphone there to plant evidence that would throw off the investigation into what happened to Swainson, who vanished from her home in the middle of the night one year ago next month.
Grant is the daughter of Freddie Grant, whom Swainson's mother used to date and whom is the key suspect in the teen's abduction.
The sheriff maintains both Grants have information on what happened to the missing girl and are working together to destroy evidence and thwart the investigation.
During a trial for her father on charges he possessed ammunition he wasn't supposed to as a convicted felon, Dominique Grant testified the ammo was hers and was chastised by the court for lying.
She has been charged with accessory after the fact of a felony over the cellphone placement as the hunt continues for Swainson.
