Erica Parson’s biological mother, Carolyn Parsons, says she feels like her daughter’s case has been forgotten, not intentionally, but as the one year anniversary of the date when Erica was reported missing draws near, Carolyn vows to bring the case back into the spotlight. Carolyn Parsons said, “Erica has no voice.” Then she quickly said, referring to herself, “Well, yes she does.”

Carolyn Parsons has recently moved back to Rowan County after living in Louisiana for about the last nine months. Carolyn plans to remain in the area until she finds out what happened to her daughter. She’s planning a candlelight vigil for Erica on August 1 at Granite Lake Park in Granite Quarry from 7-9 p.m.

Erica was 13 years old when she last seen in November 2011. But she wasn't reported missing for more than a year and a half after she was last seen. Casey and Sandy Parsons who had custody of Erica claimed they sent her to live with her biological grandmother, a woman they called Nan. But authorities say there's no such person, and Carolyn backs them up. Carolyn Parsons said, “My biological mother's been dead since 1996 of a massive heart attack in Texas. Erica's daddy's mom died in 2005 in a nursing home in Kannapolis. There is no Nan. They're made up people.”

July 30 marks the one year anniversary of when Erica was reported missing by her adoptive brother. Carolyn Parsons said, “Her name and her face and her story need to be brought back to life.”
