Haley said during a Chicora Rotary club meeting Friday, “I have been in contact with [South Carolina Law Enforcement Division] during the entire investigation, as well as with the police department here on the ground. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, and we’re going to do everything we can to help this family find their daughter,” The State reports.
The governor added that “there are so many missing people in South Carolina,” however, the Elvis family “in particular, raised quite a few concerns and needed some extra attention… We did everything we can to help them so they feel confident through this process.”

Terry Elvis, Heather's father, has stated the last time he heard from his daughter was on Dec. 17 at around 10:43 p.m. when she sent him a text message.
The State reports there is a $25,000 reward for information about Heather’s whereabouts.
Her family has created a Facebook page, FindHeatherElvis in an effort to locate her.
