A federal grand jury is hearing the case of Casey and Sandy Parsons, four months after Erica Parsons was reported missing and more than two years after the girl actually disappeared.
There have been no charges filed against her adoptive parents, Casey and Sandy Parsons.
However, a source close to the investigation revealed only to Eyewitness News that a federal grand jury was convened Tuesday to hear testimony and investigate the case in an information-gathering hearing.
Eyewitness News had a crew at the Greensboro Federal Courthouse where daughter Brook Parsons testified, and so did sons Sandy Jr. and Jamie Parsons.
Jamie Parsons is the son who first reported Erica's disappearance.
Channel 9's source confirmed this was not the first time Jamie Parsons testified in front of a grand jury. He was also in a hearing on Oct. 28.
Casey and Sandy Parsons said Erica was taken by her biological grandmother months ago and now they are committed to helping find her.
Channel 9's source said Casey and Sandy Parsons are well aware of the grand jury proceedings and we also learned an anonymous donor gave the Parsons $1,000 to help pay their legal fees because the donor felt bad for them.
