South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has confirmed that she is involved in trying to help find missing woman, Heather Elvis, 20, according a Jan. 17, 2014 report by The State.

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.”

Heather went missing in the early morning hours of Dec. 18 after being dropped off at her apartment by her date, who authorities say is not a suspect in her disappearance.

According to The State, a police report filed on Dec. 19 indicates Heather’s vehicle was discovered at Peachtree boat and landing, just a day after she vanished.

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.

Anyone with information regarding Heather is urged to call 843-915-TIPS or email crimetips@horrycounty.org.
