    Very true!

    I was about to ask if Erica may have a health condition that caused her short stature, but after some googling, I'm not sure if it could be that she's just shorter (no medical condition causing it or disability).

    According to this, the avergae height and weight for a 13 year old girl is:
    60 - 63 inches and 95 - 105 lbs.
    http://www.disabled-world.com/artman...ht-teens.shtml
    That makes her about 7" shorter than the average at 13 (according to these numbers, I was 5" taller than this at 13, which is also when I stopped growing), so IMO there's plenty of inches under/over that many 13 year olds are; I don't really know if her height alludes to more going on with her. I hit my final growth spurt early (grew the most between 10-13) and I suspect Erica had yet to hit hers when she was 13.

    According to this, she was reported missing by a step-sibling:

    Good for that step-sibling! Apparently whatever answers the other family members had for Erica not being around set off his/her hinky meter.

    Wow. I had assumed the parents had finally stepped up and reported her missing. I'd LOVE to hear the parents excuse for not calling the police the day she "disappeared". How frustrating and infuriating.

    And again... they are pretty uninvolved.

    I have a feeling we will end up with a Christian Coate situation here.
    He wasn't reported missing for 2 years after he was murdered and buried.
    unfortunately i feel the same way it would be easier w/ a child her age to make excuses as to why they weren't somewhere (sports, friends, vacation, etc)....i'm sure it took some guts for the step-sibling to report this, it doesn't sound good at all.

    Any Flyers? I'm in the Asheville area. I wonder if WLOS will pick-up on this. They seem slow on the uptake of missing cases.

    OMG...
    TWO YEARS?!?

    Poor girl.
    I pray she is safe somewhere and they just didn't "care enough" to report her running away.
    However, my stomach dropped when I read how long it has been and that it was a sibling and not a parent that reported it.

    So the grandparents live in China Grove and Erica lived in Salisbury? Those two places are not that far apart. I used to live in Concord and drove through those places all the time. I have 2 grandkids and another one on the way and I don't go more than a few days without talking to them or going to see them. How can you NOT know your grandchild is missing?

    Hopefully she has had the chance for that to happen........

    Just doing some searching for further info, got a date missing.

    According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies are searching for now 15-year-old Erica Lynn Parsons. Parsons was reported missing last Tuesday to the Sheriff's Office by a step-sibling, investigators told WBTV.

    She was last seen on November 19, 2011 at a home along the 200-block of Miller Chapel Road in Salisbury.

    http://www.wnem.com/story/23050874/t...-disappearance


    On Monday night, Eyewitness News asked neighbors if they had ever seen Parsons.

    Elizabeth Cardona said she saw a lot of police activity at the Parsons home last week. She said something else struck her as strange.

    "I saw two ladies yelling at each other and I saw a moving truck but I didn't know what was going on," said Cardona.

    ...She lived with her adoptive parents on Miller Chapel Road in Salisbury.

    ...Her grandfather says she was home-schooled so the school department did not report her as missing.

    Steve Parsons, who lives in China Grove, is the girl's grandfather.

    He can't remember exactly when he saw her last but thinks it was about a year and a half ago.

    He says her mother and father kept telling him that she was away.

    ---------------

    "Just a little girl who didn't seem happy,"
    he said.
    Asked why he said that, Parsons replied, "I have no idea."
