It's been over two months since anyone last saw or spoke to 20-year-old Heather Elvis. Here's an in-depth timeline of events since the investigation into her disappearance began.
Heather went on a first date with a man who may have been the last person to see her. During the date, she texted her father, Terry Elvis, a photo of herself learning to drive a stick shift in the parking lot of the Inlet Square Mall. He dropped her off at her River Oaks Drive apartment around 2 a.m.
Heather phoned her roommate - who was home on Christmas vacation - to talk about the date.
According to the police report, Heather received and made a handful of phone calls. Her cell phone activity ended around 6 a.m.
Heather's vehicle, registered in her father's name, was found at the Peachtree boat landing in Socastee. The doors were locked. Police notified Terry Elvis who opened the car, but her purse and phone were not inside.

Terry Elvis told police he was exiting his business on Howard Avenue at the Market Common when he saw a black 2-door Jeep Wrangler in the parking lot behind the complex, according to a report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department. The vehicle had a black rag top with a tubular bumper, blacked-out rims, and was raised up higher than standard height.

Arrest warrants released by HCPD detail the kidnapping and murder charges. The warrants state that Tammy and Sidney Moorer "did unlawfully, without just or sufficient cause, murder Heather Elvis with malice forethought." The kidnapping warrants state that the couple "did unlawfully seize, confine, kidnap, abduct or carry away Heather Elvis by any means whatsoever without the authority of the law."
Tammy and Sidney Moorer appear in Horry County Court before Judge Steven John for a bond hearing. After testimony and presentation of evidence from state prosecutors, Terry Elvis, Horry County Police, and the Moorers' defense attorneys, the judge denies bond for both Moorers.
