    She was born in 1998, she turned 15 in February she went missing at 13.
    She went missing November 19, 2011. So they know what DAY she went missing but didn't report it?
    Yet they don't know what clothes she was wearing and they again, waited 21 months to report it?
    So she missed 2 Thanksgivings, 2 Christmas' and 2 birthdays before being reported missing.

    Grandparents concerned over missing 15-year-old girl

    They said the teenager lived at a home south of Salisbury, but when Channel 9 went there, the family members said they have been advised by their attorney not to talk about the case and they've turned over photos of Erica to the sheriff's office.

    Hmm. Anytime I see a huge time lapse between last seen and reported missing I think the worst. I am thinking the worst.

    Does anyone the circumstances of why she is just not being reported missing nearly 2 years later? And why the photo they are distributing of her seems to be a childhood picture and not a recent photo?

    My children's grandparents are pretty uninvolved.
    Even THEY would freak out after a year.
    There are certain functions my kids are expected to be at.
    (Christmas, 4th of July, their birthdays.)
    Only missing a few of those would result in them coming to ME.
    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.

    Two FREAKING years?! Are you kidding me? Why was this not reported and how did no one notice her missing? Teachers? Classmates? Friends? Neighbors? Extended family? No one noticed a thing?

    Not reporting a missing child should be illegal.

    I also wonder why this was not given to the media last Tuesday? I realize they would have to do a little checking first but why wait a week? strange.

    At the end of the video the reporter says her grandparents last saw her a year ago but they were in aware she was missing. Anyone else catch that?

    I wondered that as well. It would make more sense.

    Was she 95lbs and 4'5" two years ago? That would have been small for her age then, but really small for 15.

    In two years, she could have had a major growth spurt & hit puberty. She could be many inches taller and tens of pounds heavier by now.

    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/publish/height-weight-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.

    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.
