Heather Elvis' disappearance in 2013 has been talk of the town for years, especially since even six years later, no one truly knows what happened to her. Even as two suspects were convicted on charges of her kidnapping, she was presumed to be dead though her body has never been found. Investigation Discovery is delving into the missing case of Horry County resident Heather Elvis in a two-hour special titled 'Disappeared in the Darkness: An ID Mystery', to try and find the answers to the question plaguing everyone's mind: What happened to her?


Here is everything you need to know about the new true-crime show:

Release date

'Disappeared in the Darkness: An ID Mystery', premiers 27 May at 9 pm on Investigation Discovery. 


The show documents the aftermath of Elvis' disappearance in the early hours of December 18, 2013. Elvis was having an affair with an older married man, who she met at work. After the relationship ended, Elvis began to receive threatening texts from his wife and then suddenly disappeared one night after returning from a date with another young man.


Her ex-lover and his wife take center stage in the investigation as suspects, and soon a trail of secrets is discovered leading to Elvis' mysterious disappearance. It includes a kidnapping plot, a possible pregnancy, fraud and obstruction of justice.
