Feb 21, 2014 10:52 AM EST
Two suspects were arrested on Friday in connection to the disappearance of a 20-year-old South Carolina woman missing since December, ABC News reported.
According to a police report, a warrant for the arrest was issued around 7 a.m. at 8786 Highway 814. The names of the suspects have not been released and no files have been charged.
"The search warrant was executed in an attempt to identify potential evidence based on new information obtained through expert analysis of previously seized surveillance tapes in the area along with financial discrepancies filed with the State of South Carolina on behalf of the occupants of the residence," a news release from Horry County Police Department said.
Lt. Robert Kegler of the HCPD said the Horry County police, State Law Enforcement Division, 15th Circuit Solicitors Office, Highway Patrol, and US Marshals Office were all on the scene.
Elvis was last seen on Dec. 18 around 3 a.m. after she went on a date, according to her family.
About a month ago, authorities arrested two other men -- William Christopher Barrett, 52, and Garrett Ryan Starnes, 25 -- for interfering with the investigation after posting misleading information regarding Elvis' disappearance on social media websites, prompting officers to chase false leads.
Comments continue to flood Elvis' Facebook page with family, friends, and well-wishers expressing their hope to find her.
"I don't know you either but I'm praying you are safe and that you are found soon. God bless," one user wrote.
Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Myrtle Beach Police Department at (843) 918-1382.
