    Rowan Co. Deputies: 15-year-old missing since 2011

    Updated: 11:02 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5, 2013 | Posted: 4:53 p.m. Monday, Aug. 5, 2013
    ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. —Erica Parsons is a 15-year-old from Rowan County; she was adopted as a baby.

    On Monday night, her grandparents said that no one has seen her since 2011 -- yet she is just now being reported as missing. They told Eyewitness News they thought she was visiting other family.

    Erica Parson's grandparents told Eyewitness News they've been asking their son or daughter where the teenager was, but they just learned two weeks ago that Parsons was missing.

    It has been two years, and according to deputies, no one has seen or heard from 15-year-old Parsons.

    How Erica could disappear and no one notice
    Charlotte Observer
    By Michael Gordon, Cleve R. Wootson Jr. and Lindsay Ruebens
    Sunday, August 18, 2013
    snip
    No favorite teacher intervened because Erica was home-schooled. No Facebook friend grew suspicious because Erica, at times reclusive, didn’t have an account.

    snip
    Erica was born Feb. 24, 1998, “a happy baby,” says Crystal Owensby, who was being raised by Erica’s biological mother, Carolyn Parsons. Owensby, 25, says Carolyn didn’t have the money to keep Erica, but was never at peace about giving her up. Now, with Erica missing, she’s heartbroken about the decision.

    “It bothered her every day,” Owensby said. “She feels maybe if she had kept her, this would’ve never happened. She blames herself.”
    On her Facebook page, Carolyn Parsons wrote: “I nor her dad have no clue where she is and we love her and want to find her and know she is safe.”

    Investigators released a computer-generated photo of Erica Parsons that shows what the 15 -year-old girl may look like.

    The Parsonses insist they left Erica in the care of Irene “Nan” Goodman, her biological grandmother. Law enforcement investigators have not been able to verify that, and neither has Dr. Phil. He said his staff found 13 Irene Goodmans nationwide, seven of whom are alive. Those women said they had nothing to do with the case, he said.

    Dr Phil part two: Lie detector test results on show not good for Erica’s adoptive father
    Salisbury Post

    UPDATED: Thursday, August 22, 2013 12:54 a.m.
    snip
    A polygraph expert says Sandy Parsons, the adoptive father of missing teen Erica Parsons, was “strongly deceptive” in a lie detector test he took during a taping of the “Dr. Phil” show that aired Wednesday.
    Casey Parsons did not take a lie detector test in the taped segment shown Wednesday.
    snip
    In the latter half of the program Wednesday, the talk show host featured the mother of a child Casey Parsons carried as a surrogate. She claims the Parsonses tried to keep the child and sell it to someone else.
    Dr. Phil disguised the woman, but the Post has a copy of the 2002 court agreement between the Parsonses and the parents, Vern and Amy Miller of LaPeer, Mich.

    According to one of the warrants, the Parsons admitted to continuing to receive financial aid from the state after Erica was gone. Investigators also documented that when Casey Parsons was interviewed about Erica, she referred to the teen in the past tense.

    The second warrant is the search warrant executed on the couple’s home Wednesday afternoon. About a dozen local, state and federal investigators searched the home on Miller Chapel Road near Salisbury. They spent more than 12 hours at the home collecting evidence, poking holes in the back yard and marking the ground with orange flags.

    “Even my brother who sits up in that house and denies everything, he needs to come out with the truth,” Scott said.

    Supporters shouted, “amen” in agreement.

    “I’m not behind him. Some of my family members are, but I’m not going to be ’cause this little girl needs a voice. This community is the voice,” he said.

    “He sits up in here like this. I thank y’all. Let’s run him out and I will too,” Scott said.

    “Let’s drag him out,” someone shouted.

    “The truth’s going to come out. Sooner or later, the truth’s going to come out,” Scott said.

    Scott said he didn’t witness any abuse, but there were things he heard.
