Vigil Held for Missing Teen
Investigators aren't hopeful that a missing Rowan County teenager will be found alive, but that isn't shaking one man's resolve.
Brian Young planned a fifth vigil for Erica Parsons this Christmas. Parsons disappeared two years ago but wasn't reported missing until this summer.
As we reported earlier this week, a cadaver dog may have uncovered human remains on her grandparent's property. A warrant filed at the courthouse shows investigators believe Parsons may be dead.
Although Young never met her, he's written a song about her and threw a Christmas party for her last weekend.
Brian Young, organized vigil, "we're just trying to keep Erica right on our hearts, right on our mind all the time. There's a lot of broken-hearted people out there that really love her. She's become like family to us."
Young says the information in those warrants is upsetting but he says, until Erica is found, he will hold out hope and continue praying.
