Adoptive parents of Erica Parsons back in court over youngest children

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

The adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons are set to be back before a judge on Thursday in reference to the couple's two youngest children.

Those children were taken from Sandy and Casey Parsons when the investigation began into the disappearance of Erica Parsons in July of last year.

Last month the children were removed from their custodial home and placed in the care of other family members.

Sources close to the situation have told WBTV that the children were removed after problems between adults in the home.

The two children, Sadie and Toby, had been living with an aunt following a judge's ruling, but their maternal grandparents were also living in the home.

WBTV has learned that the Department of Social Services removed the children after an incident and they are currently with other family members.

Erica Parsons was reported missing by her adoptive brother in July, but had not been seen since November 2011.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Erica Parsons is asked to contact the Rowan Sheriff's Office or the FBI.  A reward of $25,000 is available.

Casey and Sandy Parsons have been having regular, supervised visits with their two youngest children.  The children were taken from their home when the investigation into Erica's disappearance began.  

A scheduled custody review which was to have taken place last month was called off due to a health issue involving Casey Parsons.  That hearing is set for 9:30 on Thursday morning.

In the past both Sandy and Casey Parsons have told WBTV that they would like to be reunited with their children, but other family members are hoping that isn't the case.
