With the search for Heather Elvis approaching six weeks, the family of the missing Carolina Forest girl is calling upon anyone with information about her whereabouts to step forward.
A post to the official "Findheatherelvis" Facebook page administered by the missing 20-year-old's family contains harsh words for anyone withholding information.
"To those who are keeping the silence... Do you feel it? Can you feel the guilt?" the post reads. "The trail is short now, the dogs are on your scent, your time walking free is so very very short, you can see it as if it were [an] hour glass and the sand [is] almost gone."
Horry County police have said there are no official suspects or persons of interest in the case. Elvis disappeared after returning home from a date sometime after 2 to 2:30 a.m. Dec. 18.
Police records obtained by Waccamaw Publishers state that there are phone records showing phone activity between Elvis' cell phone and a 38-year-old Horry County man as late as 6 a.m. Dec. 18, four hours after Elvis returned home from her date.
The calls were back and forth between the victim and the older man, the report said.
According to the report, the victim’s father also expressed concern to police about another man and possible coworker of Elvis “due to him possibly being abusive,” and “supposedly making a statement ‘if she hides, he will find her.’”
Lt. Robert Kegler with the county police said both men have been interviewed. No one other than Elvis' date has been ruled out as having any involvement in Elvis' disappearance, though there still are no official suspects, Kegler said.
Waccamaw Publishers has not identified the other persons in the report by name because no criminal charges have been filed.
A $30,000 reward for information about Elvis’ whereabouts is being offered. Report tips to 915-TIPS or email@example.com.
