ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. -- There is new information in the search for missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons.

Sheriff Kevin Auten told WBTV cadaver dogs indicated the possible presence of human remains on property owned by Erica's adoptive grandfather. WBTV says search warrants show dogs alerted investigators in October and November.

According to WBTV, that information was turned into court Monday.

In August, investigators searched a storage building on the grandfather's property and found teeth, a hammer, a video tape, pieces of a vacuum cleaner and school records.

Investigators also found red stains on a pair of pants and drywall after a 12-hour search in Erica's adoptive parents' home.

Erica's stepbrother, James, reported his sister missing at the end of July. But he said nobody has seen her since November 2011.

The Rowan County Sheriff's Office and TV talk-show host Dr. Phil partnered in August to offer a $15,000 reward for information about Erica's disappearance.
