MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

 The father of a missing Myrtle Beach woman who police say has been murdered filed a complaint Wednesday about being harassed.

 Terry Elvis, age 54, is the father of Heather Elvis, age 20, who went missing before Christmas and has yet to be found.

 A married Horry County couple, Sidney and Tammy Moorer, have been jailed  since Feb. 21 on kidnapping and murder charges related to Heather Elvis.

 On Wednesday just before noon, Terry Elvis called police to his business, Always Stuck on You, on Howard Avenue.

 Elvis told police about a Facebook video that was recently posted and that he then discovered a red "X" that had been spray-painted at his business.

 This is not the first time Elvis has complained about being harassed since Heather Elvis went missing on Dec. 18.

 On Feb. 4, Terry Elvis called police when he said the passenger of a black Jeep reportedly made a verbal threat to the him.

Elvis told police there were two white males in a black Jeep. The passenger of the vehicle yelled out to the victim, "We already have Heather, (Elvis' other daughter) is next."

Elvis said the driver and passenger sped off south towards Johnson Avenue and then east towards Farrow Parkway.

On Wednesday around 10 am, Terry Elvis was alerted by friends to a video that was on Facebook that had just been posted earlier Wednesday, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

 "The victim stated that he viewed the video that had a posting of 11 hours prior at 12:59 am on March 13, 2014.  The victim viewed the 33 second video that was shot from inside of a vehicle facing outward," police said in a report.

 The video showed the vehicle travel north bound on Redden Lane to the stop sign located at Yancey Way, police said.  The vehicle turned left/east bound onto Yancey Way and the camera is turned to face the back of the buildings behind the victim's business, police said.

  After viewing the video, the victim advised that he went out the rear door of his business that exits onto Yancey Way to attempt to see where the video was shot from, police said.

 Terry Elvis told police that when the door closed, he observed a red in color "x" painted on the rear door to his business. 

Elvis told police he smelled fresh paint in the area.

"The victim felt that the "x" meant that he was being marked," police said.
