DATELINE: The Landing


The parents of missing South Carolina woman Heather Elvis, Debbi and Terry Elvis, open up to NBC News’ Andrea Canning about the search for their daughter.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It’s vacation heaven. Sixty miles of Instagram-worthy sand and surf here, and thrills at every turn.

But leave the tourists behind and go inland, a mere twenty minutes, to a quiet place by the Waccamaw river. It’s tranquil. The trees draped in Spanish moss. There’s an old boat landing here with a fancy name: Peach Tree Landing.  

It’s a quiet spot that you can go to think. You don’t get a lot of that in a small town. So when you find a spot, I mean, you go all the time.” Morgan Elvis

But when it’s dark, in the pre-dawn hours, this place can be lonely. Mysterious. And what happened here to 20-year-old Heather Elvis one December night in 2013 became an enduring mystery. 

“I know that there is no way that Heather would not home if she could come home, no way.” Debbi Elvis
