Prayer vigil held before trial starts in Heather Elvis disappearance case

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Two and a half years after Heather Elvis disappeared, family and friends gathered to remember the Socastee woman and pray for justice and closure in her case.

Saturday night's vigil comes just one day before a new chapter in the case begins, the much awaited trial of Sidney Moorer.

Moorer has been accused and charged with kidnapping and obstruction of justice in connection with Elvis's disappearance. He is set to face a judge Monday for the kidnapping charge. His wife, Tammy, has also been charged with kidnapping. Her trial date has not yet been set.

On facebook, Elvis's family posted prayer requests ahead of the vigil that started at 6:30 p.m.

FindHeatherElvis facebook page:

-Pray for all of the attorneys, court officials and the judge to be well prepared and receptive to God's guidance.
-Pray for the jurors to be filled with wisdom and discernment.
-Pray for the accused to be touched by the Holy Spirit to do His will.
-Pray for our family to have and maintain strength, endurance and grace throughout this whole process.
-Pray for the community to continue to support and encourage each other, responding to each other with hearts of mercy.
-Pray that during the course of this trial (or sooner), we will be able to finally bring Heather home.
-Also, pray for all of the missing and their families. Pray that people will do the right thing and speak up so that they can finally bring their children home.
-Pray for comfort for the parents who have to live through every day without their child.

"I would like to just implore everyone to remember that while the trial is important, it's important that we seek justice," Terry Elvis, Heather's father, said. "It's important that it's administered properly. But this whole thing, trial and all not withstanding, is about finding our daughter."

Elvis was last seen on December 17, 2013 and was reported missing shortly after. Her car was found abandoned at Peachtree Boat Landing days later.
