Police in Myrtle Beach and Horry County are on the lookout for a Jeep Wrangler after one of two men in the vehicle threatened the family of Heather Elvis, according to a report filed by Terry Elvis, the missing woman's father. Not only did the man yell that they had Elvis' oldest daughter, an implication that she might be held captive, but they also threatened that something similar could happen to Morgan, Heather's younger sister.

"We already have Heather," the man allegedly yelled at Elvis, who owns a printing shop nearby. "Morgan [Elvis' other daugher] is next."
Heather Elvis was reported missing by her father on Dec. 19 after Horry County police found her abandoned car at Peachtree Landing along the Waccamaw River. She was last seen on Dec. 17 and last heard from on Dec. 18.
