Billboards planned for missing Rowan teen Erica Parsons

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, FBI Charlotte and the State Bureau of Investigation are launching a new effort to gain publicity for missing Rowan County teen Erica Parsons.

Beginning Monday, Adams Outdoor Advertising will feature Erica’s photo and an age-progressed photo of what Erica might look like at age 15 on digital billboards throughout the Charlotte area, according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. Specific locations were not yet available.

Erica Parsons’ disappearance gained national attention this week when her adoptive parents, Casey and Sandy Parsons, appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show.

Sandy Parsons was “strongly deceptive” to questions on “Dr. Phil” about whether he deliberately caused Erica’s disappearance, a polygraph expert said on the show.

Before Erica was last reported seen in 2011, family members had suspected the girl was being abused, according to search warrants released last week.

Anyone with information on Erica Parsons’ whereabouts is encourage to call the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700.
