Erica Parsons update: more billboards, many still hoping Erica will be found alive

SALISBURY – The work goes on in the continuing search for missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons.  It’s been nearly two years since she was seen and law enforcement suspects foul play in her disappearance.

On Tuesday, Erica’s adoptive father, Sandy Parsons, spent some time back at the now nearly vacant home on Miller Chapel Road.  The family has moved most of their belongings to the Fayetteville area.

Carlyle Sherrill, the attorney for Casey and Sandy Parsons told WBTV that he hasn’t spoken to his clients since last Monday and is not aware of any upcoming interviews with law enforcement for the couple.

Adams Outdoor Advertising announced through the Rowan Sheriff’s Office that it has added four new billboards like the one pictured above. Three of the new boards are on I-77 in the Charlotte area and one is on I-485.

Back in Salisbury, investigator with the Rowan Sheriff’s Office and the FBI are continuing doing interviews, following up on 100’s of tips, and waiting on test results about evidence collected in the case.

On line, groups are busy trying to help investigators.
Those on a “Prayers for Erica Parsons” Facebook page provide updates and encourage other to hold out the hope that Erica may be found alive.  The group’s administrator also keeps one note posted at the top of the page, begging Erica to contact her and offering to pick her up, no matter where she is.
So far, the note hasn’t gotten a reply from Erica, but it has been shared by dozens. For now Erica is still listed as missing and non has faced any charges in the case.
If you can help investigators find Erica Parsons or know anything about her whereabouts, you are urged to call the Rowan Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700.
