Horry County Police still need tips to find Heather Elvis

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The search for Heather Elvis first started back on December 17th, when she reportedly went missing. Crews first searched the Peachtree boat landing in Socastee where her car was found.

This area and many other previous locations already searched could be reviewed again if tips into the Horry County Police Department leads investigators to them.

"Our ultimate goal is to find Heather Elvis and we are going to work daily till that happens," according to Lieutenant Robert Kegler with the Horry County Police force.

Now with Tammy and Sidney Moorer behind bars at J. Reuben Long Detention Center facing murder and kidnapping charges, this part of the investigation into what happened to Heather is turned over to the solicitor's office.

The focus returns for investigators to where it all began, where is Heather? No future searches are being planned at this time, but tips from the public are what investigators need to pinpoint their next location.

"Once we get information on credible information on a possible location we will go to that area whether we've been there before or whether it's a brand new area."

At this time, the department is being tight-lipped about any questioning of Tammy or Sidney Moorer by investigators regarding where Heather might be.

Terry Elvis, Heather's father, said he isn't giving up hope she can be found. Terry admits he is hanging on by a thread, but that's all he has to believe in. He said he isn't currently in the right frame of mind to make an official comment to the media yet.

Monica Caison with the CUE Center for Missing Persons said she hasn't been notified yet of any future searches for Heather, but the group will help out if they're needed in any way.
