Asheville Police fear a missing 15-year-old girl may be dead. Erica Parsons' adoptive parents, Casey and Sandy Parsons told investigators their daughter came to live with her maternal grandmother in Asheville in 2011. But News 13 has now learned detectives working the case believe think that was a lie.I'm so worried. I'm so worried, said Janet Parsons, Erica's paternal grandmother. This is such a precious child. No one wants to lose a child.
Asheville Police spoke with Rowan County detectives in Salisbury. Sgt. Dave Romick with APD said detectives believe the girl's parents made up an alibi about Asheville to cover something up.I find it odd that if she(Erica) was reported here in 2011, we haven't come across her, or stumbled across her before now, said Romick. And certainly what concerns me is we haven't been notified until now.A family member notified Rowan County police two weeks ago that Erica was missing. Steve Parsons, believes his son could be involved in something serious.That's my fear, said Parsons. That something has happened and nobody is telling us. I'm not talking about the law, I'm talking about my boy and my daughter-in-law.
A family member told News 13 he went to police with allegations Erica's adoptive parents, Casey and Sandy Parsons, may be abusing her. Social services is now also involved in the investigation.The fact two years have passed since anyone has seen the girl is alarming to Sgt. Romick, a veteran detective with APD.Two years in a missing persons case is an eternity, said Romick.He also said the fact a relative came to police just two weeks ago to report her missing also is suspect.It doesn't add up.Stay with News 13 for the latest updates on this active investigation.
