Community continues to search for Heather Elvis

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) -

It's been 25 days since missing 20-year-old Heather Elvis was last seen. But efforts from community members are still strong.

"Somebody had to have seen something. And I'm not going to rest until that person comes forward," said Donna Vance, a volunteer.

Vance and other volunteers spent Saturday giving flyers to cars that were passing by the Bob Evans near highway 501 in the River Oaks area.

"We've got to find her. We've got to find her alive and bring her home. We've had people missing for 10 or 15 years that they've found alive and that's our hope. That every day we wake up hoping to find Heather alive and bring her home," said Vance.

Like many other volunteers, Vance doesn't know Heather or the Elvis family but she said she's out here because she's a mother concerned for someone's daughter.

"My heart just pours out to them and I know I'd want everybody possible out trying to help me if it were my children," said Vance.

It's the same for Marc Speranzi, another volunteer out Saturday passing flyers. Speranzi said he was there because he knows the Elvis family. 

"We're going to keep looking.  We're looking for any information, leads, clues, anything to put this puzzle together," said Speranzi.

200 volunteers joined the CUE Center for Missing Persons to also try to solve that puzzle.

"As far as the volunteers you have the average hunters and people that know or have a relationship with the Elvis family. You've also got a lot of fathers and mothers that have children and don't even want to imagine what this family is going through and want to help in some way," said Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center for Missing Persons.  

Caison said there were multiple resources on the ground from ATV's, to horses, to k-9's, and underwater camera equipment to use for small ponds and creeks in the area.

"We're going to be with this family till the end," said Caison.

Caison said it's important to keep up awareness for Elvis in case anyone remembers anything. She said the CUE Center will start to search more north, then expand out. Caison said they search areas based on law enforcement requests.
