Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. A $25,000 reward posted today by the FBI to find missing teenager Erica Parsons. This is the first time the Rowan County Sheriff and the FBI are speaking publicly about the case. Erica was reported missing six moths ago, but she hadn't been seen since early 2012 when she purportedly went to live with her grandmother. The problem with that story is her grandmother had passed away long before Erica went there. Our David Whisenant has been reporting on this story since the beginning and he'll be live with the latest at 5:00.
