Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Investigators say Dominique Grant the daughter of Freddie Grant placed Gabbiee's cell phone behind a Piggly Wiggly in Myrtle Beach in an effort to throw off the investigation into the missing girl.

Thursday, bond was set at $300,000 for Dominique Grant the daughter of Freddie Grant. Dominique Grant, 27, was officially charged with accessory after the the disappearance of missing Columbia teen Gabbiee Swainson.

Deputies say nearly a month ago Gabbiee's cell phone was recovered behind the grocery store in Myrtle Beach by a delivery driver.

Sheriff Leon Lott added that both Freddie and Dominique Grant have information on what specifically happened to Gabbiee and are working together to destroy evidence to hamper the investigation.

Dominique Grant said in Court that "she would give her life for her father...but not her freedom" and said that she was innocent.

News 19 spoke with Elvia Swainson exclusively.

"I'm always thankful for anything that they can get because my main concern is bringing my child home and that is always where my focus has been. We need Gabbiee to come home and we need anyone who knows anything about the situation to come forward and speak up," said Swainson.

We asked Ms. Swainson about Gabbiee's phone being found in Myrtle Beach and she tells us she is still learning more information about the discovery herself

"As far as the connection I don't have all the details but whatever she is able to give us, would be greatly appreciated so that we can bring my child home," said Swainson.

She says she will never lose hope that her daughter will be found alive.
