Missing Female: Heather Elvis, 20 years old

Reported Missing: Thursday, December 19th, 2013
Details About Her Disappearance
Heather Elvis was last seen at 541 White River Drive around 2:30 AM on Wednesday, December 18th. Earlier that evening, she went on a date with a guy she recently reconnected with from high school. The date told law enforcement that he dropped her off at her apartment around 2:30 AM, and that her car was in the parking lot when he left.
(The date has fully cooperated with the police, passed a polygraph, and has been cleared by law enforcement as a person of interest or suspect.)
Heather called her roommate, who was out of town visiting her family for the holidays, to tell her about the date and about the great time she had. It has been reported that the call was made around 3 AM, and it's the last known communication made to/from Heather.
On December 19th, police found Heather's car (a 2001 dark green Dodge Intrepid) abandoned at Peachtree Landing in Socastee. When the responding officer ran the car's plate, he contacted her father because the car is registered in his name. After several hours of unsuccessful attempts to reach Heather by phone, a missing persons report was filed.
Several agencies have aided in a K9 search via foot, boat, and helicopter. The search has been focused on the land and water surrounding the Peachtree Landing area, as well as other remote areas in Horry County.
According to law enforcement, Heather's car did not appear to be damaged and there's no indication she went in or near the water.
Concern began to grow among her family and friends when she failed to show up for her scheduled shift at The Tilted Kilt on Friday, December 20th. The Tilted Kilt is a sports bar and restaurant located at Broadway at the Beach.
Heather is 5'1" and approximately 118 pounds. She has dark brown hair and brown eyes. $30K is now being offered for any information that leads to Heather's whereabouts.
