“You walk into the the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office and you told them what?” Channel 9′s Allison Latos asked in an interview with Jamie.

“I’m here to report her missing, but I’m not 100% sure she’s alive,” Jamie responded.

“What made you finally come forward and report her missing?” Allison asked.

“Because I had enough family members to actually believe me,” he said.

Jamie said that in December 2011, his parents, Casey and Sandy Parsons, told him Erica had gone to visit her biological grandmother.
