Rowan County, N.C. - The Rowan County Sheriff's Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations are searching for missing juvenile, Erica Lynn Parsons. A relative advised investigators, on July 30, 2013, that Erica has not been seen since November of 2011.

Erica's adoptive parents, Sandy and Casey Parsons, say the girl went to stay with relatives in the Asheville, North Carolina area, at the age of 13 years-old, and have not seen her since. Sheriff investigators have since determined the information provided by Erica's adoptive parents was not true.

Investigators with the Rowan County Sheriff's Office say Erica's adoptive parents have been uncooperative and that they have uncovered disturbing signs of foul play. No charges have been filed, however.

But police say they've been unable to locate the grandmother. or any other relatives besides Erica's 20 year-old brother who reported her missing. Casey and Sandy Parsons "were unable to provide any known locations" or contact information, officers wrote in one of two affidavits seeking warrants to search the Parsons' house and a shed on property owned by Sandy Parsons' father.

Law enforcement officials have declined to discuss details of the investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is assisting the sheriff's office.

The Parsons recently moved from their Salisbury home about 40 miles north of Charlotte to the Fayetteville area to escape news media attention. Their attorney, Carlyle Sherrill, told The Associated Press his clients had nothing to do with Erica's disappearance.

Erica Lynn Parsons is described as a white female with brown hair and brown eyes, weighing 85 pounds at about 4'3" to 4'5" tall.
