MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The father of missing woman Heather Elvis has filed a second complaint with Myrtle Beach Police to investigate possible harassment.

On March 13, Terry Elvis reported that his friends saw a video on Facebook that showed someone in a car driving behind and filming his business. When he went outside to get perspective on where that video was likely shot from, he found a red "X" painted on the back door and could smell fresh paint.

The police report states, "[Elvis] felt that the "X" meant that he was being marked."

On Tuesday, February 4, Terry Elvis reported to police that two males drove up to him and made a verbal threat towards him and his family.

He said he was exiting his business on Howard Avenue at the Market Common around 1:20 p.m. when he saw a black 2-door Jeep Wrangler in the parking lot behind the complex, according to a report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department. The vehicle had a black rag top with a tubular bumper, blacked-out rims, and was raised up higher than standard height.

Elvis saw two white males in the vehicle, a driver and passenger, the report states. The passenger yelled out to Elvis: "We already have Heather, Morgan is next." Elvis went back inside his business, and upon going back outside, he saw the vehicle speed off towards Johnson Avenue and towards Farrow Parkway. Elvis said it was not displaying a license plate at the time of the incident.

Elvis said he was unable to locate the suspect vehicle, and a search of the area for video footage of the incident came up empty, the report states. Police are reviewing footage from a nearby business.

Myrtle Beach police are asking the public's help in identifying the owner and operator of the vehicle. Police ask that anyone with information related to this vehicle or this incident contact Myrtle Beach Police at 843-918-1382.

Many in the Myrtle Beach community have followed, or even participated in, the search for missing 20-year-old Heather Elvis, since mid-December 2013. Her disappearance has made national headlines, and was featured on HLN's Nancy Grace show, and recently on Dateline NBC.

On February 21, Sidney and Tammy Moorer were charged with kidnapping and murder in connection to the 20-year-old's disappearance.
