Erica Parsons was last seen November 19, 2011 but was only reported missing by her brother on July 30; he told police his parents had killed her
Sandy and Casey Parsons deny hurting the girl and say they left her in the care of her grandmother 'Nan'
After the girl went to live with her, Nan's phone stopped working and they say they do not know where she is
Dr Phil and police said there is no record of Nan
Relatives have said Erica endured years of abuse at the home - which the couple has denied - and police have searched the house for evidence

I am not a big fan of Dr. Phil ... but love this little clip

Daughter Brooke missing one night...and you reported her missing
but.... Erica missing two years and not reported!!

Adopted mother says different situation... Brooke ran away with a man ...reported her missing and picked her up the next day
Erica was with her grandmother and she knows where she is...

Now the part I like... (confrontation by Dr. Phil) no you don't know where she is because if you did we could go get her!!

Above all paraphrased... keeping in mind police say that the woman they claim have her died 5 years ago..did not find any relationship to the family!

WHERE IS ERICA??

Notes from the Dr. Phil show:

Casey Parsons, Erica's "adoptive parent", was a surrogate.
She took money for a baby.
Then, she called the woman and asked her if she wanted an abortion.
Later, she called the woman and told her she had miscarried.
The woman reading on internet saw Casey Parsons was offering a baby up ....said it was her sister's child and sister did not want her....
Woman contacted LE and got HER baby!

Couple are taking a lie detector test on Dr. Phil.
Results are not in yet but should be soon....

Dr. Phil:
Talking about the taking of a polygraph test...
Casey stated she was in pain;they were unable to give the test...
Casey refused to return.

The husband did take the test.
He did NOT want to wait for the results.

State/FBI were waiting at the airport and had warrants for the home...FBI ripped up the floors, walls, etc. Couple has hired an atty.
Atty is now speaking. Couple had been taking cash for the child when the child was not there; that is FRAUD.

Test results of Sandy Parson's polygraph.
He is the husband in this relationship.

Dr. Phil:
Sandy Parsons' polygraph test results:

Did you deliberately cause Erica's disappearance?
No.
Did you have a plan to cause her disappearance?
No.

DECEPTION on both questions.
Clear.

The questions were reviewed in advance.
Sandy was told that IF Erica HAD been given to Nan and disappeared from Nan's custody, then he would not be held responsible for Erica's disappearance...

Questions may not be admissible in NC state court BUT THEY ARE ALLOWED IN FED COURT>

What really struck me about this interview is that Dr. Phil asked Casey, if Erica is watching, what would you like to say to her.  Her response was, "please call".  Not, "we love you"; not "we miss you"; not "we want to make sure you're OK".

IMO, they are not the least bit interested in this child. They are only interested in trying to clear themselves.

I'm not a parent, but I can't imagine turning my child over to a woman without thoroughly checking that person out. Heck, I wouldn't even do that with a pet! So whether they turned her over to this woman, or they did something to harm her, IMO they are negligent either way.

The other interesting part of the story is they had on the phone the woman for whom Casey was a surrogate.  She said that at 6 weeks into the pregnancy, Casey called to say she had miscarried.  About 6 months into the pregnancy, the intended mother found a message online looking for them, and when she responded, she was told that Casey was, in fact, still pregnant, and was planning to either keep the baby or make money selling the child. The woman said there's no doubt in her mind that Casey was trying to make money off the pregnancy. The woman ended up getting the child that Casey gave birth to.

Very sad story.

Expert: Erica Parsons’ adoptive dad ‘strongly deceptive’ on Dr. Phil polygraph
August 21, 2013

Snipped:
-----
The expert, Jack Trimarco, said he asked the father, Sandy Parsons, two questions: did he deliberately cause Erica’s disappearance and did he have a plan to cause her disappearance?

Trimarco told Dr. Phil he fully explained the meaning of the questions to Parsons, and he understood them.

“He was what I consider strongly deceptive to both relevant questions,” Trimarco told the host, Dr. Phil McGraw.

“Do you think he knows something he’s not telling us?” Dr. Phil asked.

“He does,” Trimarco responded.

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

On Dr. Phil's show, Trimarco said that the numeric value associated with his responses was -9; deception is typically indicated with a score of -4, so -9 means very deceptive.

WARRANT: Teeth, hammer, video found during new search in missing teen case
Posted: Aug 21, 2013 3:06 PM PST Updated: Aug 21, 2013 4:10 PM PST

Snipped:
-----
According to the warrants, investigators seized a video tape, pieces of a vacuum cleaner, teeth, a hammer and school records.

...

The second set of warrants, which was released on Wednesday evening, references the initial search that was done.

"During that search, investigators failed to located any evidence of Erica Parsons still living here or any evidence that her room or personal living area still remained in the home," the warrant stated.

Investigators say the evidence in the home indicated that Casey and Sandy Parsons knew Erica would not be returning home.

In addition to finding photos and books about the death of JonBenet Ramsey inside the Parsons home, the new warrant states that investigators also found material on the "South Carolina Susan Smith case."

Actually, this case and its principals reminded me of the Tammi Smith/Elizabeth Johnson case with the missing child, Gabriel Johnson. Something about Tammi Smith repeatedly asking young/indigent mothers-to-be if they were willing to give their child over to her just reeked of potential wrong doing and the child would be the victim.

Interesting point, Freckles. I came into that case fairly late in the game, but Tammi was a piece of work. The difference in my mind is that Tammi wanted a baby for herself; Casey Parsons seems to want to make money off children, which is far more disturbing.

Casey Parson's eyes are as dark and soulless to me as Jodi Arias'. And Sandy seems so emotionally detached. He's already saying that whatever Casey wanted, he was OK with it. I wonder if he's going to eventually throw her under the bus.

Tammi Smith never convinced me she wanted a child for herself.
She already had her own bio kids (and the grands from them)...
TS did mention SHE knew TWO couples who were interested in adopting Gabriel (TX, Tenn) and SHE wanted to make those arrangements for Elizabeth Johnson....

"They said they were in a little box so it could have been a keepsake or something like that.  I don't know," she said.

Erica Parsons’ adoptive parents in hearing on two youngest children

Posted: Thursday, August 22, 2013 2:15 p.m.


Casey and Sandy Parsons leave the Rowan County courthouse during a break in the hearing on custody of the their two youngest children. Shavonne Potts, Salisbury Post

The adoptive parents of missing teen Erica Parsons are in court today for a custody review hearing on their two youngest children, who were removed from their home by the Rowan Department of Social Services.

A judge closed the hearing to the public at the request of attorneys for the Parsonses and Social Services.

Sandy and Casey Parsons’ youngest children have been placed with Casey Parsons’ mother. Social workers removed the children — a boy and girl aged 7 and 8 — July 31 after authorities began investigating the disappearance of Erica, who is now 15 years old.

Erica Parsons — a niece who the couple took in as an infant and adopted at age 2 — has been missing nearly two years, but was only reported missing on July 30 by her adoptive brother, James.

Casey Parsons' father says he saw her abuse Erica
Aug 22, 2013

" ... SALISBURY, N.C. -- Casey Parsons father, James Stone, says he was about to report Erica Parsons missing when he learned his grandson already had.

Stone also says he saw his daughter allegedly abuse Erica on two occasions, including once by pulling Erica to the ground by her own hair.

Stone, who was in a juvenile court hearing for Casey Thursday in Rowan County Court, says he does not think Casey should get custody of her two children, given the allegations and circumstances surrounding Erica's disappearance.

The search warrant states that investigators took electronics, bank slips, school records, notebooks, letters between family members and two knives wrapped in shrink wrap. They also took swabs of the walls inside some closets, behind some doors and behind a TV. They removed pieces of carpet and drywall.

(snipped)


Allegations of physical abuse, emotional abuse and distain toward Erica are laid out in the warrant.


This case is going to end badly! But I hope that they find her and bring justice!

ROWAN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

Nearly 200 people attended a Friday night vigil for missing teen Erica Parsons, who hasn't been seen since 2011.

The vigil, which was held just feet away from the home of Casey and Sandy Parsons, Erica's adoptive pare
nts, was made up of mostly strangers who had never even met Erica.

In the video, they said that her adoptive parents were not there.

Erica Parsons update: Why haven't parents been arrested?
Aug 24, 2013 at 12:29 AM PDT

Right now what needs to be asked is why Sandy and Casey Parsons have not been arrested yet. They've already failed a polygraph test, their stories have been declared false by their own family members and stories about their past have come into play. Is there enough circumstantial evidence to not arrest them on suspicion of murder?

I wonder how this was justified to social services and/or schools?
Did the school not wonder when Erica's school records were not called for?

DSS did not wonder about Zahra Baker not being enrolled in school. Her last school was told they had moved to another county, so they did not question them again.

Erica Parsons - Homeschool rules not always enforced

SALISBURY — North Carolina doesn’t have records of Erica Parsons’ home schooling, an official said Wednesday, because her family didn’t have to submit them.

Chris Mears, a spokesman with the Department of Non-Public Education (DNPE), said home schools are required to keep certain records but not to regularly report them to the state.

“We request that they submit standardized test scores for students, but they’re not required to,” Mears said. “They have to conduct the test, but they don’t have to submit proof to us.”

This bit of information absolutely terrified me... so then how do the "officials" even know that children exist? anything can happen and they just keep reporting... oops they turned 16 and decided no more school... Erica was missing 2 years..had the brother not reported (and it really doesn't matter his motivation) when would we find out someone was missing.. there potentially could be so many more missing people/children/babies that are never reported. I am trying to twist my brain around the shear numbers that could be "out there"

Erica Parsons’s biological family: ‘There is no Nan’

Posted on: 1:45 pm, August 25, 2013, by Joe Borlik, updated on: 02:35pm, August 25, 2013

ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — The biological family of a Rowan County girl who has not been seen for nearly two years is speaking out about her disappearance.

~Snipped~

The adoptive parents said Erica went for a three-week Christmas visit with Nan nearly two years ago and then called them two months later to say she wasn’t coming back.

~SNipped~

“She loves Nan,” Casey Parsons told WBTV. “I met Nan. I talked to Nan. Nan is a very good lady.”

But Erica Parsons’s biological family said there is no Nan. They said Erica’s biological grandmother died in 2005.

“My grandmother’s real name is Chloe,” Erica’s biological cousin Christina Goodman told WSOC-TV. “We don’t have any idea who ‘Nan’ is.”

Thanks, AD!

This got to me...

" ... She loves Nan,” Casey Parsons told WBTV. “I met Nan. I talked to Nan. Nan is a very good lady.”

But Erica Parsons’s biological family said there is no Nan. They said Erica’s biological grandmother died in 2005.

“My grandmother’s real name is Chloe,” Erica’s biological cousin Christina Goodman told WSOC-TV. “We don’t have any idea who ‘Nan’ is...."

"... Carolyn Parsons, Erica’s biological mother, said Erica does not have any biological relatives in the Asheville area.... "

Exactly!  I was stunned to read this.  No one is double-checking anything!  I hope the rules for homeschooling in NC change as a result of this case, as this is unacceptable on so many levels.

Sunday, Sandy Parsons threw away the candles and posters left behind.  He and his wife, Casey Parsons, did not attend Friday’s vigil.

As he tossed away candles, NBC Charlotte asked Sandy, “can you respond all to this candlelight vigil,?" still scooping up candles Sandy responded “she ain’t dead,” never turning his head to look our way.

Crystal Owensby, 25, lived with Erica on and off for two years while Carolyn Parsons, Erica's biological mother, lived with her father.

...

Owensby worries about what may have happened to Erica too.

"I've heard she's been sold, I've heard she could be dead, that the adoptive family could have killed her because of the knives they found," she wonders.  "I really don't know."

Erica Parsons’ adoptive parents move out of Salisbury home

After nearly a month of media attention about their adoptive daughter’s disappearance, Casey and Sandy Parsons are moving from their home just outside Salisbury.

A U-Haul truck arrived at their home late Tuesday morning. Shortly afterward, the family began loading it and a pickup truck with furniture and appliances, according to WCNC-TV, the Charlotte Observer’s news partner.

So much for them wanting Erica to come home.  Why would you move if you were hoping your missing daughter would contact you there?  Makes no sense unless you know she can't contact you or come home.

Former FBI Assistant Director analyzes Erica Parsons' case
Posted on August 28, 2013 at 6:03 AM  Updated today at 6:40 AM

Former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker was one of those people, watching the case unfold on his television at home.

"There are just too many holes in this story," said Swecker, who has no connection to the Erica Parsons investigation. "Even for the most hardened investigators, these are the cases that keep us up at night."

...

Swecker said the fact the Parsonses appeared to have packed up and moved out of their Salisbury home Tuesday is a red flag.

"It's a strange move at this point. If they are really sincere about getting Erica back, if she's out there somewhere, you would think they would stay put.  They can't get away from the FBI."

Erica Parsons case shedding light on home school regulations

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

The Erica Parsons case has also brought unwanted attention to home schooling in North Carolina.  15-year-old Erica was home schooled and many were shocked to learn that the state had never checked her school records.  

In fact, state officials said that the only document it held regarding Erica Parsons was an "official non-public school registration record." It has raised the questions about how much oversight home schools in North Carolina really have.
