ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. - The adoptive grandfather of a missing Rowan County teenager said he regrets not asking more questions about her disappearance.
James Stone spoke to reporters after he testified at the custody hearing of Casey and Sandy Parsons.
"Me and my wife didn't have no idea. We never suspected anything," Stone said.
The Parsons are fighting to regain custody of their two youngest children, who were removed from their home in August after Erica Parsons was first reported missing.

Many of Erica's adoptive relatives have testified in front of a juvenile court judge over two days, including Erica's brother, aunt, grandmother and grandfather.
Sheriff’s investigators also took the stand Wednesday.
"I just hope justice is done. It's tough to think about it every day," Stone said.
The proceedings will resume Tuesday.
