Terry Elvis, the father of a woman reported missing in December, called Myrtle Beach police Thursday to complain about harassment after finding an “X” painted on the back door of his business in The Market Common, according to an incident report.

Elvis told police he feels the “X” means he is being marked.

Elvis said he had three friends call about 10 a.m. Thursday to tell him there was a video posted on a Facebook page called “Call Da PO HO” that showed the back of his business, and that that was liked by a page called “Sidney and Tammy Moorer are innocent.”

Elvis’ daughter, Heather Elvis, was reported missing Dec. 19 when her car was found at the Peachtree Boat Landing.

Sidney and Tammy Moorer are charged with murder in connection with the 20-year-old’s disappearance. Police charged the husband and wife last month. Heather Elvis’ body has not been found.

The video referred to in the police report, which had no “likes” at 6:28 p.m. Thursday, was posted at 12:59 a.m. Thursday and shows buildings in The Market Common shot from within a vehicle. The camera faces the buildings behind Elvis’ sign shop “Always Stuck On You.”

The Facebook page the video is posted on is “liked” by the “Tammy and Sidney Moorer are innocent” Facebook page.

Elvis said in the report that he hadn’t seen the side of the door where the “X” is painted in about a year because it is usually propped open. He said he smelled fresh paint in the air when he saw the “X” painted on the door.

In a report from Feb. 4, told police that he exited the rear of his shop where he saw a jeep – raised “significantly” above its normal height – with two men inside. The passenger yelled, “We already have Heather, Morgan is next,” according to the report.

He said he watched the Jeep speed away from the 2800 block of Howard Avenue toward Johnson Avenue and Farrow Parkway. Police are investigating
