MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Twenty-year-old Heather Elvis went missing on this day six months ago, and there are still plenty of questions left in the open investigation into her case. Months may have passed since Terry Elvis last saw his daughter, but for his family, there's no concept of time.

"It was a milestone at 6 hours, 6days. Today just makes it that much harder."

Since Heather's disappearance, police have charged Tammy and Sidney Moorer with one count of murder, kidnapping, and obstruction of justice. But for Terry Elvis, there is no real justice until Heather has been found.

"Every day that goes by, every hour that goes by...the worry doesn't go away," Terry Elvis said. "The questions don't go away."

The fight to find Heather hasn't gone away either. Although you may not see any more tip tents set up next to busy roadways, the search has shifted to a more quiet resolve.

Terry says he hasn't given up, and he'll continue making signs and banners.

"We're still looking for those answers," he said. "It's unbearable at times."

Throughout it all, there's still hope for finding Heather.

"Six months - it will be a great time for someone to step forward with any information that they have," he adds.

Elvis also says even though Wednesday will be a tough day for the family, Heather's 21st birthday is a little more than a week away, and that will be the hardest.

WMBF News reached out to Horry County Solicitor Jimmy Richardson for the latest on the search efforts, but Richardson could not comment due to the gag order.
