SALISBURY, N.C. -- It has been one month since Erica Parsons was reported missing from her Salisbury home.

There are new questions now about her adoptive parents, who appeared to be moving out of the house Friday where she was last seen two years ago.

Earlier this week, Sandy Parsons and his wife could be seen loading their belongings into a rental truck.  The couple was believed to be moving to Fayetteville to live with one of their sons.

However, Sandy Parsons was back at the house on Miller Chapel Road Friday and he told NBC Charlotte that he had come back to the house early each morning since the couple had left and said he would be sticking around.

He was also clearly annoyed at the reporters who have staked out the house.

"You all shined your light on at five this morning and woke me up.  Should be against the law," Parsons said.

Sandy and Casey have said in numerous interviews that they left Erica with a grandmother two years ago when Erica was just 13.

They said she told them she was happier living there.

Investigators said they could not locate the grandmother and have no evidence that the story is true.

Kristina Parker, who lives in Salisbury, is organizing a vigil that will be held this Sunday for Erica at the courthouse in Salisbury.

While a month has passed since Erica was reported missing, and apparently with no solid leads, Parker said Erica will not be forgotten and no one is giving up hope for a happy ending to the story.

"It's one of those things you just pray about.  I hope that Sunday everybody will come out and try to just do nothing but pray," she said.
