On December 17, 2013, Heather Elvis went out for a first date with a man that ended when he dropped her off at her apartment at 1:15 a.m. the next morning. A half-hour later she called her roommate, who was visiting her family, to tell her how the date had gone. Although there are records of her cell phone being used over the next two hours, she has not been seen or heard from since that morning.
The date had been Elvis's attempt to move on after a relationship with Sidney Moorer, a repairman she had met through her job at a local restaurant, had ended two months earlier. According to some accounts this had been a result of Moorer's wife Tammy learning of her husband's affair. She sent Elvis several confrontational text messages, but denies any role in her disappearance. Phone records show that Elvis's phone, and Sidney's, were used to call each other several times in the early hours of December 18; he says the two did talk with each other briefly on two occasions, but also denies any wrongdoing despite security camera footage showing a truck believed to be his driving to and from the boat landing where Elvis's car was found that evening.
Four months later both Moorers were charged with murder, obstruction of justice, and indecent exposure; investigation also led to the couple being charged with Medicaid fraud as well. The murder and indecent exposure charges were dropped in 2016, but Sidney was convicted of the obstruction charge the following year. Two men, one a relative of Elvis's, were charged with obstructing justice in 2014 for posting misleading information online and conducting their own independent investigation. Sidney's 2017 trial on the charges ended in a hung jury and he has been awaiting a retrial; shortly after the mistrial the Moorers were indicted on an additional charge of conspiracy. Tammy was convicted of kidnapping and conspiracy in October 2018.
