    It looks like they may have removed a deck and poured a concrete slab but it is really hard to tell. I also notice what looks like a sidewalk going to the out building, and what appears to be a fire ring has been added. The cynic in me wants to know if this work was done in late 2011 or early 2012.

    From your article:

    "Sherrill is the attorney for Casey and Sandy Parsons who had adopted Erica as a little girl. She told Eyewitness News they had agreed to send the girl to stay with a relative in the Asheville area around Thanksgiving 2011.

    Soon after, Erica called back and said she did not want to live with them anymore."

    Who is this relative? The girl didn't want to live with them anymore and they just accepted that? No visiting? No daily calls? No sending her stuff? They just wiped their hands of her? Makes no sense.

    A motive for not reporting her missing may be more 'innocent' than we think. If she was adopted, they may have chosen not to report so they could continue receiving her benefits. The subsequent fraud could be a reason for the quick attorney hire.

    Not saying that it isn't hinky though. Just trying to find other possible scenarios that might explain the lack of action.

    "Let's just say we couldn't find her if we wanted to," says family's attorney. Horrible.

    They said that they were convinced by her adoptive parents that she was away with her birth family.

    On Tuesday night, family members fear the worse for the adorable girl.

    They told Channel 9 that they believe 15-year-old Erica Parsons will never be found alive.
    For the past 20 months, they never knew she was actually missing from her house.

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

    Eyewitness News asked family members to say more about Erica, they said she was incredibly sweet and very tiny.
    They said she was quiet and lived in fear.

    I typed something else before, but after reading that article, I wonder if you might be right about the benefits...BBM
    How many children does this family have?

    The family breeds pets that they sell. There are presently three doghouses in the front yard in front of the sidewalk leading to the front door. There appears to be more than one storage-type building in the backyard but I'm not positive about it. The right end of the home where a garage/carport was located at one time is now a room with a door in the front.

    At least one news outlet has reported that James is Erica's step-brother. I believe James is Erica's older brother, not her step-brother.

    Do people get benefits when they legally adopt a child?? Adoptions usually cost the parents money, it's fostering children that brings in money.

    Since she has the same last name as the parents, I assume the adoption was through the court system.

    Gotta be the most bizarre missing persons cases I've seen!
    I know we've all said "2 years :gasp: :banghead: :pullhair:
    but I just have to say it as well.

    Seems like not reporting something like this should be a case of child endangerment, at least?

    The news reports say she was adopted when she was 2 weeks old. While true that they would not be getting any money for foster care. They could be getting SNAP benefits (food stamps) and AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children), which are allocated based on the number of dependents.
