Sunday marks day three of a 24 hour a day tent set up in Socastee to help find Heather Elvis.
Volunteers have set the tent up near the swing bridge on Dick Pond Road by River City CafÃ©.
The tent was set up on Friday at 5 p.m. and remains open non-stop until Sunday at 11 p.m.
The volunteers will be taking any tips, even from those who wish to submit them anonymously, all in an effort to help locate the missing 20-year-old.
Volunteers at the location explained that they have already received more than a dozen tips but are urging everyone to continue to bring more information.
Heather's father, Terry, and sister, Morgan, were at the Dick Pond Road Sunday morning urging anyone with information to come forward.
"No matter how small a tip it is, it can be of use. It may lead to what they need to know to bring Heather home. We've been 17 days into this nightmare trying to find her. It's hard, it's very hard. So, anyone, if you know anything, help us put this nightmare to bed. Please help us find our daughter," said Terry Elvis.
Morgan Elvis, 16, said she didn't want her community to give up their efforts. "If your family was missing, you'd want people to remember. You wouldn't want it to be just brushed off, so I'm asking you to keep looking because this is my family, and this is my sister, and she's my other half; my better half and I just want her home."
By Sunday morning, volunteers had already handed out more than 2,000 missing person flyers.
