Erica was last seen around 9 pm on October 13, 1986, near Main Street and Railroad Avenue in Middleburgh, New York. At the time, she lived with her husband, Richard, and their young son. Their marriage was troubled, and she reportedly told her brother she was afraid for her life and wanted to leave. Richard told police Erica had gotten on a bus and he did not hear from her again. She was reported missing by her family in Michigan in February 1987. Richard later moved to northern Vermont.
At the time of her disappearance, Erica was 26 years old. She was 5 feet, 4 inches and weighed 100 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes.
Erica has a mole on her left knee and protruding upper front teeth. She was last seen wearing a baggy shirt and blue denim overalls.
