Two people arrested Friday on a warrant stemming from the Heather Elvis case were charged Saturday with two counts of indecent exposure and one count of obstruction of justice.

Bail was set at $5,000 for Tammy Lorinda Moorer, 41, of Myrtle Beach on each of the indecent exposure charges and $10,000 in pretrial for the obstruction of justice charge.

Bail also was set for her husband, Sidney St. Clair Moorer, 38, on the same charges. Each of the indecent exposure charges was $5,000 bail and the obstruction of justice charge was set at $10,000. As of Saturday afternoon, the two remained incarcerated in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

A posting on the Horry County Police Department’s Facebook page said additional charges for the pair were pending.

The two were arrested Friday on a warrant executed by officials from the Horry County Police Department, the State Law Enforcement Division, the 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office, the U.S. Marshal’s Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol at the couple’s home at 8786 SC 814, about 12 miles northwest of Garden City.

Elvis, 20, was last heard from in the early morning hours of Dec. 18. Her car was found in Socastee the following day.

Since that time, volunteers have held vigils and searched the area on numerous occasions, but no trace of the young woman has been found.
