SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Rowan County Sheriff's Office has released a computer-generated photo of a Salisbury girl who has been missing two years to illustrate what she might look like today.

Erica Parsons is 15 years old. She has been missing since she was 13, however, her family reported her missing at the end of July 2013.

Last week local and federal law enforcement agencies searched the home of her adoptive parents, Sandy and Casey Parsons. Investigators said 68 items were removed from the home, including a pair of jeans and a section of drywall that had red stains. The items were sent out to be tested for blood.

Erica was last seen by her step-brother, James Parsons, in November 2011, according to the sheriff's office. James reported that Erica was missing July 30, 2013.

Investigators said when he asked his parents, Sandy and Casey Parsons, about Erica's location, they told him she went to stay with her biological grandmother in Asheville

Her adoptive parents said in a previous interview they didn't file a report because they didn't consider her missing. However, the warrant from the search of the home said the parents could not tell investigators the location of the home they took Erica.

The warrant said, "James told investigators that Sandy and Casey Parsons routinely abused Erica both mentally and physically. James also reported that Sandy and Casey Parsons continued to receive checks for Erica from the State of North Carolina after she was last seen in 2011."

In their report, investigators said, "It is believed that the continued desire to utilize the funds, proceeds, or financial assistance intended for the care of benefit of Erica Lynn Parsons resulted in the delay or outright denial to report Erica Lynn Parsons missing in a timely or reasonable time frame."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Rowan County Sheriff's Office at (704) 216-8700.
