Biological Mother Refuses To Let Missing Daughter Be Forgotten

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC- It's been years since Erica Parsons, a North Carolina adoptive child was last seen alive.

Now her biological mother wants to make it her mission to make sure her child is not forgotten.

Her story is one that months ago brought together people who didn't even know her, to sing and to pray that she would be found.

But now Erica Parson's biological mother fears her case has been forgotten.

"I feel like I'm in somebody's nightmare and I can't wake up," said Carolyn Parsons.

Carolyn gave Erica up for adoption when her daughter was very young.

The irony now is that she thought Erica would have a better life.

But Carolyn's daughter has been missing for more than two and a half years and there's no trace of the teenager.

"The hardest part is not knowing," added Carolyn.

Erica was 13 years old when she last seen, in November of 2011.

But she wasn't reported missing until about a year ago.

Casey and Sandy parsons, who had custody of Erica, claimed they sent her to live with her biological grandmother "Nan," a woman authorities say doesn't exist.

"I just think they need to come forward and tell the truth. It's been a year too long," said Carolyn.

Carolyn recently moved back to Rowan County from Louisiana she says she's here to keep Erica's case in the spotlight.

"This little girl cannot be forgotten," she said.

Carolyn is planning a candlelight vigil in just a couple of weeks at a local park and after that she says she's not going anywhere until she finds out what happened to her daughter.

"I don't talk about Erica in the bad. I will not. Every parent wants to hold on to hope," said Carolyn.

It's the hope of a community and a renewed hope of a mom who says she won't stop seeking the truth.
