The police entered the home of Sidney Moorer, 38, and Tammy Moorer, 41, on the 8700 block of State highway 814 with a search warrant on Friday, reports WMBF news.

"The search warrant was executed in an attempt to identify potential evidence based on new information obtained through expert analysis of previously seized surveillance tapes in the area along with financial discrepancies filed with the State of South Caroline on behalf of the occupants of the residence," the Horry County Police Department stated in a news release.

This is the same Sidney Moorer, who had a "relationship history" with Heather according to the Carolina Forest Chronicle and who made a complaint about William Barrett and Garrett Starnes who were subsequently arrested for obstructing justice after they posted information on social media about Heather missing. Barrett allegedly had gone as far as questioning a witness to get confidential information from them and finding evidence and not telling the police, reported The State.

Terry Elvis, Heather's father stood by Barrett and called him his friend and spoke highly of him for spending all his time trying to help find his daughter.

Heather R. Elvis, 20, was last heard from around 3 a.m. on Dec. 17, 2013. She had gone on a date and had returned home. She was last known to be at 541 White Drive off of River Oaks Drive in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Her car was found parked at Socastee S.C. at the Peachtree Landing.

Police have been looking at surveillance footage throughout the area where Elvis went missing and stated on Friday they were able to carry out the search warrant at the Moorers' home based on what investigators saw. Police have not released any more details into what the surveillance video showed nor on what charges the Moorers were arrested.

The search for Heather continues and another "tip" tent will be set up in front of River City Cafe by the Swingbridge in Socastee through the weekend to hand out flyers and take tips.
