The Dateline episode “The Landing” investigates the disappearance of 20-year-old Myrtle Beach waitress Heather Elvis. She was last seen on December 18, 2013. Dateline interviews her parents Debbi and Terry Elvis, her sister Morgan Elvis, her friend Brianna Warrelmann, and Tammy Moorer, the woman who was convicted of kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap Heather Elvis. Heather Elvis was having an affair with Moore’s husband Sidney Moorer, who is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for obstruction of justice in the case. Sidney Moorer still awaits trial for his role in the disappearance of Elvis. Note: The Moorers suspected that Heather Elvis might have been pregnant. Her body has never been found.
At her trial, Tammy Moorer took the stand in her defense and denied knowledge of Elvis’ disappearance. On October 23, 2018, before being sentenced to 30 years in prison, Tammy Moorer addressed the court and called herself “Heather’s No. 1 advocate.” One day after Moorer’s sentencing, Elvis’ father who runs the Facebook page “FindHeatherElvis,” reported that “we were not able to even take a breather before having to appear back in court to defend a contempt accusation by one of the defense team.” Mr. Elvis admits that he called one of Moorer’s defense attorneys a “lowlife” but outside of the courtroom during a break in the trial. A judge found Elvis guilty of contempt in court and he was fined $400. If he didn’t pay the fine, Elvis would have had to serve 30 days in prison. “It’s almost comical,” says Elvis in the video interview below. Dateline airs Fridays at 10 pm on NBC.
