Need help with a debt that was supposed to be included in Bankruptcy and was not

Hi there.  My husband and I filed bankruptcy in Feb. 2004.   We pulled our credit report as we are trying to work on getting our credit score up and noticed a $5,000 motorcycle loan that was supposed to be included with our bankruptcy.  But it's showing as Owe $5,000, and it says charged off, but doesn't say included and bankruptcy and shouldn't it show that we owe $0 if was charged off and included in bankruptcy?  Seems to me they still think we owe them $5,000.  Any ideas on where we should go from here?
