Volunteers searched for Elvis by horseback on Saturday, Dec. 28, but Elvis could not be found. Additional searches are scheduled for both women until they're found.

Horry County police said on Dec. 20 that a car belonging to Elvis was located in the 6600 block of Peachtree Road near at the boat landing.

Horry County police with help from several agencies also searched the Intracoastal Waterway by boat and with a SLED helicopter, but Elvis was not found.

A missing persons poster shared by the Horry County Sheriff's Office states that Elvis was last heard from around 3 a.m. Tuesday. A $20,000 reward has been posted for information leading to her whereabouts.

Elvis stands about 5-feet, one-inch and weighs 118 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.

"I beg of you, if you have ANY information that may be helpful no matter how small, please contact me or the Horry County Police Department. Your identity will be protected and your information will be appreciated more than we can express with words."

The poster says people with information can call 843-457-5747, or county police at 843-915-5350.
