HORRY COUNTY, SC - -

The search for a missing South Carolina woman continues as her family and her employer increases the reward for information leading to closure to the case.

Elvis' father has teamed up with the Tilted Kilt corporate offices to increase the reward for information on his daughter, who was last heard from around 3 a.m. Dec. 18 after she went on a date, according to her family. Her car was found abandoned at a boat landing Dec. 19 in Horry County.

"She's a beautiful young lady," the woman's father, Terry Elvis, told FoxNews.com. "She's a good-hearted girl . . . always helpful and active in her church activities. Everybody loved her."

"To not hear from her for more than 24 hours is way out of character," he said. 

Horry County Police and volunteers have spent the last week looking for Heather Elvis, but have found no trace. Several companies have donated billboard advertising to put up pictures and information on Elvis.

Another young woman, 24-year-old Jamie Lynn Cross, was reported missing five days after Elvis. Cross was last seen leaving her Myrtle Beach home in a green Volvo around 5 p.m. on Dec. 23. There is no indication the two disappearances are related, according to authorities. 

Elvis is described as being 5 foot, 1 inch tall and weighing about 118 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. 

Elvis' family has set up a Facebook page in hopes of getting the word out.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts as well as those of Cross is urged to contact the Horry County Police Department at 843-915-5350.
