The father of a South Carolina woman who went missing last month, wrote an emotional confessional about the experience of her sudden loss – sharing the last image she sent him the night before she disappeared.

Heather Elvis, 20, was last seen after being dropped off from a first date at her condo in Horry County in the early morning of December 18.

The next night, a police officer showed up at father Elvis family home, informing Heather’s father Terry that her car had been found abandoned at a nearby boat landing.
