Only a small update today

Five updated cases. That’s it. I’m feeling exceptionally lazy today and kind of down. Nothing major, it’s just that I keep reflecting on my life and all things I did and didn’t do and didn’t do well enough. I’ll get over it.

The largest update was for Erica Parsons. (And yes, her father’s name really is Sandy and her mom’s name is Casey, not the other way around.) Her case is starting to sound more like Adam Herrman‘s case every day. Let’s look at the similarities:

1. Both were adopted.
2. Both of them “ran away.”
3. Both of them were home-schooled, which is part of the reason their disappearances went unnoticed for so long.
4. In both cases, the adopted parents speculated their missing child was with biological family members.
5. Both of them were reported missing by an adult sibling, because the parents wouldn’t do it.
6. In both cases, members of the extended family came forward and said they’d seen the missing child being abused by their adopted parents.
7. In both cases, the adoptive parents got a subsidy from the state and continued to collect it for years after their child disappeared.

Rest in peace, Erica.
