Missing In Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, S.C. is ground zero for a rash of recent disappearances involving young people, according to the Associated Press.

Just the kind of publicity a struggling tourism economy was hoping for, right?

“Every time we turn around, there is another case,” a North Carolina woman who helps track missing persons told the wire service.

Yikes …

And while there is nothing (yet) to suggest anything beyond random misfortune in these disappearances, the head of the Wilmington, N.C.-based CUE Center for Missing Persons told the AP’s Jeffrey Collins that she’s been encouraged to relocate to South Carolina.

“They are telling me I should just move my office down here these days,” she told the wire.

The latest young person to disappear? Twenty-year-old Heather Elvis, last heard from on December 17. Elvis’ car – a green 2001 Dodge Intrepid – was discovered two days later at a boat landing near Socastee, S.C.

Here’s a picture …

Anyone with information regarding Elvis’ disappearance is encouraged to contact the Horry County Police Department at 843-915-5350.

And obviously let’s keep all of these missing people (and their friends and family members) in our thoughts and prayers …

I wonder if there is a serial kidnapper at work, like the guy in Cleveland who held the girls prisoner for years. Lots of abandoned and seldom-used housing in the Myrtle Beach area as a result of the real estate bubble and the seasonal nature of the economy.

Ummm…I don’t think that’s Heather Elvis in the pic, Will. That’s the other girl that turned up OK—I may be wrong, though…it appears pics may have been transposed, but I dunno for sure.

Now a late twenties former (male) Marine has gone missing. Horry County is keeping it classy as always.
