HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) – Wednesday marks six years since the disappearance of 20-year-old Heather Elvis.

Cell phone records show Heather Elvis’ last activity was in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, 2013. Her vehicle was found the following day at Peachtree Landing in the Socastee area.

That’s where Elvis’ family and the community gathered on Wednesday night to honor Heather who still hasn’t been found.

Heather’s mother Debbie Elvis said she still relives every single second of the last time she saw her daughter.

“I wish there was more I said, more I did. It’s just very hard to look back and know there are so many things I could have said so many things I could have done. I could have hugged her more and could have said I loved her more,” Debbie Elvis said.

During the investigation, authorities identified Sidney Moorer and his wife, Tammy, as suspects in Elvis’ disappearance.

Documents show Sidney Moorer and Elvis had an affair after the two met while working at the Titled Kilt, a now-defunct restaurant and bar at Broadway at the Beach.

Both Sidney and Tammy Moorer were convicted of kidnapping Elvis and were each sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Through the heartbreaking ordeal, Debbie Elvis is trying to help others in honor of her daughter.

“During the holidays, it’s a really hard time for a lot of people and they can come out and write their loved one’s name on a luminary and celebrate their life,” Debbie Elvis said.

Meanwhile, she still hangs on to the hope that her daughter will come back to her in some way.

“In the next day, I would like for us to be able to bring Heather home, somehow, someway,” Debbie Elvis said.

Anyone with any information on Heather’s disappearance is asked to call police.
