HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Heather Elvis went missing nearly seven months ago, but her family isn't giving up hope. Elvis's picture is everywhere. It's posted at businesses all over Horry County, including the Market Common where her father, Terry, has a business. Now it's going to be somewhere else – on cars.

"In just a few days, it'll mark seven months," Terry Elvis said. "And that's a long time"

The Elvis family and supporters are working to recover the entire area with new banners and posters. Terry Elvis says some are fraying or falling down, so they'll be replaced.

Her face has been on billboards, in shop windows, and now, Heather's face will be on cars, too. Terry says he wants people to see her face and remind those who think it's over for their family.

Police say she was kidnapped and killed, and two people remain in custody charged with her death. But Heather still hasn't been found, and Terry believes someone knows more.

"Whether that's an individual watching this right now that's holding that information, or whether it's someone that knows them," Elvis continued. "Get over your fears. Step forward. I promise you the fears that they have is nowhere near the fears that we have every day and every hour."

The new banners and stickers fulfill two purposes, Terry Elvis said.

One: his daughter is missing, and he will not rest or stop searching until he finds her. "And two, it's a constant reminder to the locals that, while this is our daughter, there are thousands and thousands of other sons and daughters out here. It's a reminder to them that it can happen to anybody."

Terry Elvis says the decals are available at his office at The Market Common from 10 a.m. until noon each day through Friday.
