Moving subpanel from garage to inside

My existing 150A main panel is full. It has a 50A breaker that had fed a subpanel in my detached garage (~80ft. from house) via 6-2 with ground. I want to steal the subpanel from the garage, as I do not need power out there anymore (long story there) The 6-2 feed winds its way through my basement, right past where I'd like to reinstall the panel. However, since it is 2 wire (no neutral) I'm posting the following question:
Can I run some sort of 'neutral only' wire from the main panel, or do I need to run 8-3 to feed it?

NO, run a new cable instead of any individual me if you are going to run a single wire it is just as easy and safer to run a new cable for your needs.
