ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — Rowan County officials said in a press release Sunday night that they will release additional facts about  Erica Parsons‘ death investigation Monday afternoon.

Authorities discovered the skeletal remains of the Rowan County girl who was last seen in November 2011 on Tuesday.

Erica’s body was found on a property off Moore Road in Chesterfield County, S.C., according to WSOC. Erica’s adoptive father, Sandy Parsons, led investigators straight to her body.

The property is believed to be owned by a family member of Sandy Parsons.

Erica was last seen in November 2011 but her family didn’t report her missing until July 2013. At the time she was just 13 years old. The Parsons had claimed the girl went to live in Asheville with a woman they believed to be her biological grandmother, but that woman has never materialized.

Through the course of the investigation, the adopted parents of Erica, Sandy, and Casey Parsons were charged with federal fraud charges related to Erica’s disappearance and were later sentenced to active sentences in federal prison.

Authorities plan to release the information at 2:30 p.m. on Monday at the Rowan County Courthouse.
