MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

Two groups brought in nearly $2,000 on Thursday to help find a Myrtle Beach woman who was last seen more than a month ago.

 Anderson Oaks held a Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday afternoon and raised $1645 to help find Heather Elvis, age 20.

 The fundraiser was held at the Assisted Living center with folks paying $7 for a meal.

 An unofficial coffee club, with a prominent cast member from Welcome to Myrtle Manor, raised $316 on Thursday morning.

 Cecil Patrick, owner of the Patrick Mobile Home Park where Myrtle Manor is filmed, met with his usual group of friends Thursday at Hot Stacks, a breakfast restaurant on 16 Avenue.

 Patrick has coffee with about 12-15 folks at the restaurant each morning and on Thursday "the coffee club gave me $315.00 for the Elvis's and Hope House," he said.

 Patrick also said that he would accept donations at Myrtle Manor.

Thursday night, dozens of friends, family and complete strangers all gathered at Cypress Camping Resort  for one purpose: to pray for the safe return of Heather Elvis.

 The reward for info leading to finding Heather Elvis is currently at $30,000, with her father, Terry, having donated $15,000 to the total.

Heather Elvis, age 20, was last seen at about 2 a.m., on Dec. 18 when she returned home from a date.

Her locked car was found late the next day and searches began immediately at the Peachtree Landing along the Waccamaw River.
