Erica Parsons photo, info distributed on coupon circular

Casey Parsons, the adoptive mother of missing teenager Erica Lynn Parsons says the family is happy that Erica’s picture is posted in this week’s coupon circular.

...

Parsons said people seem to think Erica is dead and she hopes this posting will help them realize she’s missing.

Casey said she and husband, Sandy, have been pushing for Erica’s picture to be placed on billboards, coupon circulars and other places.

She said they contacted the Center for Missing and Exploited Children to see if Erica’s picture could be included in a circular.

A Post reporter has requested an interview with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Parsons also said she believes Erica is “out there” and said the reason she’s not come forward may have to do with her son James.

“Maybe being afraid of James,” Casey said.

9 Investigates: Support among lawmakers to tighten homeschool laws

ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. —

It's been just over three months since Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons was reported missing.

State records show the teen was being homeschooled by her adoptive mother when she disappeared nearly two years ago.

There is new support among state legislators to tighten homeschooling laws.

...Channel 9 obtained records from the state department of nonpublic education, that show Casey Parsons, Erica's adoptive mother, filed a notice of intent to found the Parsons' Christian School in 2005 as a religious school for her children.

Per state laws, all Casey Parsons was required to do was submit attendance and immunization records and administer a standardized test once a year. There is no standard curriculum and state education officials said they believe that is sufficient oversight

ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. —

The man who first filed a report with authorities that Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons was missing spoke out for the first time to Channel 9.

Jamie Parsons, Erica Parsons' adoptive brother, spoke with Eyewitness News in a one-on-one interview after he testified in a juvenile court hearing about the custody of Casey and Sandy Parsons' two youngest children.

...Jamie spent hours testifying in court Tuesday, a decision he said was difficult.

"It is hard, because it's my own parents, but it's the right thing to do, and I'm going to do what's right," Jamie Parsons said. "I do not know what happened to her, where she's at. I'm just hoping she's still alive."

Birth mother of Erica Parsons speaks out, two years after teen disappeared

Posted: Nov 20, 2013 4:47 AM PST Updated: Nov 20, 2013 4:47 AM PST

"Quit lying' to everybody and come forward with what you've done to my child. Or find my child and bring her to me," Carolyn Parsons told WBTV.  "I wish I knew more. I wish I knew where she was. I wish I knew how to go get her, and hold her, and hug her, and kiss her and give her all the love that she never had."

Carolyn Parsons believes that Casey and Sandy are lying about Erica's disappearance.  Investigators have made no secret of the fact that they also believe the couple has been untruthful.  But even with all of the attention the case has gotten, there has not been one credible sighting of Erica Parsons in two years.

"If you are still out there – whether it be me, or whether it be somebody else – even if you're happy where you are, just please let somebody know that you're alive and that you're okay," Parsons said on Tuesday.  And she also had strong words for the couple who had been given the responsibility of raising the daughter she says she couldn't raise.

"You know what you did to my daughter, whether it be good or whether it be bad. You need to open your mouth and you need to come forward. And you need to tell somebody."

...Angela Laubscher, Erica's adoptive great aunt said hearing new details from Department of Social Services workers about what went on inside the Parsons Salisbury home is difficult.

"We all loved Casey and we just never knew things that was happening, and so all of this is new for us too," she said.

Parsons parents not getting kids back yet
At a family court hearing, the judge has said Erica Parsons‘s adoptive parents aren’t allowed to have their other children back yet, although they will get supervised visitation. Reason? The court found evidence that Erica was abused prior to her disappearance. wrote:

Search warrant in Erica Parsons case: Dogs alerted on “possible presence of human remains’

Posted: Monday, December 23, 2013 7:31 p.m.

Snipped:
-----
Cadaver dogs indicated the possible presence of human remains during searches in October and November at a building on the property of missing teen Erica Lynn Parsons’ adoptive grandfather, court documents say.

That information was part of an affidavit requesting another search warrant for the red storage building, which was owned and used by Sandy and Casey Parsons, Erica’s adoptive parents. The warrant was served Nov. 14 but not returned to the court until today.

During the Nov. 14 search, investigators took one board and a jacket, but nothing else, according to the warrant.

...In August, Rowan County Sheriff’s Office investigators, along with members of an FBI evidence response team, searched the storage building behind William Parsons’ home on Sutton Road and took baby teeth, a hammer, pieces of a vacuum and other items.

On Oct. 21, investigators returned with cadaver dogs, according to an affidavit. Three of four dogs alerted on the red storage building, “which is reported to be an indication of the possible presence for human remains,” the court papers said.

The warrant says a more detailed search was not conducted at that time. But on Nov. 6, a K-9 handler and a dog searched the area around the red storage building again. The dog alerted on the building twice, “which indicates the presence of human remains,” the affidavit said.

Biological mom has harsh words after news of possible presence of human remains turning up in search

The biological mother of missing teenager Erica Lynn Parsons said she felt numb after hearing dogs detected the possible presence of human remains during two searches at a storage building in southern Rowan County.

Her worst fear, Carolyn Parsons said, is that Erica is not alive

“At the same time, if it is her, at least she’s not suffering anymore,” she said.

...She had strong words for the people she holds responsible for her daughter’s disappearance.

“I don’t have anything to say to them. You met with me to talk about giving my daughter back; 10 months and 15 days later my child goes missing. Be real, not psychotic nuts,” Carolyn said.

Carolyn said she doesn’t trust Casey and Sandy, but that “no parent wants to think that these people could do something, to think these people could kill somebody else’s child.”

Carolyn said she just wants to know what really happened to Erica, and she urged Sandy and Casey to speak up.

“Enough is enough, and it’s time to come forward and tell the truth,” she said.

So I am guessing that the children will be remaining with the relatives! I am glad that these People and I use the term loosely will not be able to "send another child to live with the grandmother" not that I believed that one either!  Very Happy

FBI on Parsons case: Nan doesn't exist

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Investigators working the ongoing Erica Parsons missing person case offered strong accusations and a lot of reward money Thursday hoping it will provide new clues that lead to the Rowan County teen.

..."It is clear Casey and Sandy Parsons have not been truthful with the information that would lead us to the whereabouts to find Erica. We know there is someone out there who can help us though. Now is the time to come forward," Rowan County Sheriff Kevin Auten said during an afternoon news conference. Investigators did not answer questions from reporters.

Investigators up reward to $35,000 in Erica Parsons missing person case

Notice in the video, Casey says they have been on Cloud 9 since the increased reward was announced.  Yet the article says this:

-----
"Sandy and I have been completely truthful in everything we know about this case. Rowan County has said from the start we are lying but we aren't," Casey Parsons told WBTV.

"Sadly the increase in the reward is probably to make the Rowan County Sheriff's office look good. We feel they stopped looking for Erica on the second day. Hopefully they are still looking for her but I doubt it. We are and will never give up!!"
-----

She can't even keep her lies straight on the same day!  And they are looking for Erica?  I'd love to know where...

Sadly, I don't think any amount of reward money is going to bring Erica home. Maybe the dispute will shake someone loose and then the truth can come out and charges laid!

I hope so.  

Since they were ordered to produce Erica, and they haven't, I wonder why they haven't been thrown in jail for contempt of court.

Something has to give.  Soon.

It is a mystery to me why they haven't been charged with something… maybe LE thinks that if they think they are not suspected of anything then they will make mistakes or lead them to enough evidence… It makes me furious that so many seem to get away with having "disposable" children and are never caught. Sick… Sick... world!

Jamie Parsons on parents' arrest: 'Momma knew they were coming'
http://www.wnem.com/story/26150074/adoptive-parents-of-erica-parsons-arrested-wednesday-morning

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -
The adoptive parents of Erica Parsons appeared before a federal judge on Wednesday afternoon, hours after they were arrested on dozens of fraud charges.

Casey and Sandy Parsons were arrested at their Fayetteville home on Wednesday morning around 6 a.m. by federal agents and charged with 76 counts of fraud-related crimes.
________________________

I hope they are held responsible for Erica missing and whatever they've done to her! I am glad however that they are being charged with these crimes for now. I read somewhere (I'm looking for the link) that the charges, if given max sentence on all charges, could add up to a looooooong time in prison. IMO it's a step in the right direction.

Wow/ Lot of charges. Glad to see some movement toward justice for this child. Can there be justice? Not really... Just forced accountability. I hope we may find her and bring her home...

Thanks for the link share.

Hearing: now more difficult for Parsons to win custody of youngest children

Posted: Sep 11, 2014 7:33 AM PST Updated: Sep 11, 2014 12:57 PM PST


In court on Thursday there was a change in the custody plan, removing the option of reunification.

According to the North Carolina DHHS web site, reunification means the biological parents can petition the court to regain custody of the children.  

After today, the plan for the Parsons removes that option and instead moved to a plan of guardianship, with the possibility that full legal custody could be awarded to other family members.

The judge set another review to take place in 90 days, unless other court actions overrule the need for such a hearing.

Custody hearing for adoptive siblings of Erica Parsons

Updated: 4:35 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014 | Posted: 11:35 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014


ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — Rowan County DSS officials told a family court judge Casey and Sandy Parsons continue to employ "deceptive practices" in their fight to regain custody of their two youngest children.

...In April, Eyewitness News received copies of two emails from the email address "a Hedgehog Place.” The emails claimed they were from a Rowan County DSS caseworker.

In the emails, the caseworker told Sandy Parsons that their daughter Sadie was being "physically mistreated" by her caregivers.

But when Channel 9 shared those emails with Rowan County DSS, an official told Channel 9 the emails were not valid, but "changed from their original content."
