A reward has been offered by the family of missing 20-year-old Socastee, S. C., woman Heather Elvis, who was last seen Tuesday. Although her vehicle was discovered Thursday abandoned in a parking area by a boat landing at Peachtree Landing on the Waccamaw River, the young woman's whereabouts remain unknown.
WMBF in Myrtle Beach reported Dec. 21 that the family has taken an active role in finding the young woman, offering $1,000 for information that could lead to a closure in the case.
If you've walked past the Tilted Kilt Pub and Eatery at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, you've seen the missing persons posters up in the windows offering $1,000 for information concerning the location of the missing woman or details relating to her disappearance.

In addition to the $1,000 reward extended to anyone with information leading to finding Elvis, the poster, which can be downloaded, reposted, printed, and/or disseminated to help the search and was uploaded to the FindHeatherElvis Facebook page created Saturday, Dec. 20, urges those who might have pertinent information are urged to contact the family and/or local Horry County authorities like the Horry County Police Department.
The posters are going up all over Horry County...
The reward offer comes after an extensive search of the Intracoastal Waterway around the Peachtree Landing area Friday. Authorities admitted that they were still searching but it appeared that Elvis had not gone in or near the water.
Authorities have released little information regarding the missing person case.
Terry Elvis, Heather's father, identified his daughter's abandoned car, a 2001 Dodge Intrepid, when it was found and immediately filed a missing persons report. He noted that there didn't appear to be any damage to the vehicle.
As noted, Heather Elvis, who also works at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, was last seen on Tuesday in the Carolina Forest area. The car was recovered about ten miles away at Peachtree Landing. The last time her cell phone pinged was early Wednesday morning.
Heather Elvis is described as being 5' 1" and weighing 118 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.
