FBI Increases Reward In Case Of Erica Parsons
SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation is adding to the reward offered for information in the case of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons.
Deron Roberts, the FBI’s assistant special agent in charge, told a news conference Thursday that the agency is now offering a $25,000 reward in addition to the $10,000 already being offered by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.
The announcement comes six months since Parsons was reported missing by a son of her adoptive parents. Erica was last seen in November 2011.
Casey and Sandy Parsons have said they have nothing to do with the girl’s disappearance and that she is living with her biological grandmother in Asheville.
Police and the girl’s biological father say that woman does not exist.
