SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) — The adoptive parents of a teen who’s been missing for two years won’t immediately regain custody of their two younger children as they wanted.

Casey and Sandy Parsons left a closed-door hearing at juvenile court in Salisbury on Thursday saying little. Their relative Angela Laubscher says the custody situation will stay the same until a new hearing in 90 days.

The Rowan County judge ruled that the couple’s 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son would remain with Casey Parsons’ family. The two were removed from the Parsons home in Salisbury after the couple’s adopted 15-year-old daughter Erica was reported missing in July. She hasn’t been seen by her family or friends for two years.

There has been an extensive search for what happened to the girl.
