    This is probably in the wrong Thread, but I don’t know where else to put it. I’m trying to see if there are any updates about a particular case.

    A teenage girl went missing maybe about 6 years ago. I think she was in a foster situation, or maybe had been adopted. She was treated poorly and then ‘disappeared’ suddenly. The other children in the home were not permitted to speak about her.

    I’m thinking it may have been in the Northeast part of the US. The parents were breeding dogs to sell- that I’m sure of. I think law enforcement dug up the back yard of the property, and possibly some other spots on the grand parents property. I think they all lived in the same town.

    There was a younger brother and a few other siblings. I think the parents had gotten arrested but nothing could be proven against them. I think the mom was chubby and had blonde hair.

    They lived in a very nice house, with a lovely green lawn. They might have had an above ground pool.

    At the time, pretty much everyone felt that the parents murdered the quiet teenager. I think the younger brother saw or heard something.

    Wish I could remember more. Does this case ring a bell with anyone?

    Hey! I'm waving from Ozarkistan!

    There was a missing foster/adopted teen in Iowa, found deceased, foster/adoptive parents charged?

    This it?

    Offhand, it doesn’t ring a bell. It was quite a while ago. Do you remember a name? I might know it if someone could provide more details.

    Thanks for the info, Laughing! I found the article you are referring to. It sounds so similar. But I don’t think they ever found a body in the case I’m looking for.

    If I can think of more details, or if I remember that this was the girl, I’ll post again.

    Thanks for these links! Everything about that Sabrina Ray case seems so familiar- the adoptive parents, the pic of the girl, the siblings ... The only problem is that the girl I’m looking for was never found. I believe they were following up on leads for possibly 3 or 4 years.

    I remember the house was a one story- maybe white- and quite separated from neighbors. Either few, or no trees on the property. I think the doghouse was on the front lawn, maybe near the very wide driveway. I think the house was brand new.

    There are way too many of these types of cases. Authorities are not looking out for our children. Disgraceful!

    I can’t remember. I thought it was the Northeast somewhere, but it could have been the Midwest. At the time it was a hot topic on this site.

    Sort of sounds like Aundria Bowman but her remains were recovered and she'd been missing from Michigan since 1989.

    Found Deceased - MI - Aundria Michelle Bowman, 14, Holland, 11 March 1989 *located 2020, adoptive father arrested*

    From the Des Moines Register-
    “The starved 16-year-old was found unresponsive at home on May 12, 2017.”

    Everything seems so similar, but the girl’s body was not found. That’s why the State couldn’t make any charges stick. They dug up the back yard and checked a shed on the grandparent’s property.

    YES! Thank you, CoverMeCagney! I actually tried to search this site but couldn’t locate anything.

    And there are so many similarities between Erica Lynn Parsons and Sabrina Ray- right down to their pics (which I hope I unloaded correctly). It had me very confused! I was starting to think I might actually have been remembering the Sabrina Ray case.

    It’s funny the things that stuck out to me. I’m an animal rescuer, so I remembered the dog breeding (and wasn’t happy about that, either). And the house looked so nice that it was hard to imagine the horror that went on in the household. Everything appeared to be so ‘normal’.

    I’m so very happy that all these murdering monsters are wasting away in prison.

    And btw, I was a big Cagney and Lacey fan. They’re running reruns on Dish.

    You’re welcome!! I’d never heard of the case but searched a few words along with your name and it jumped out and looked about right! Glad they finally found Erica but sad she was so mistreated in life.

    Yes, in all the hub-bub about Erica, a first grade teacher said nice things about her. Not that "adoptive mom," nope.

    The brother is a brave, brave person to speak up!

    RIP, Erica!
