Erica Bradley has been missing since November 6, 2006 from Allendale, SC. There has been little evidence in her disappearance for investigators to go on. However, relatives of the missing Erica Bradley believe that her boyfriend, Derek Maynor, knows more than he is telling.
According to the Allendale Sheriff Department, 18-year-old Derek Maynor, Erica’s boyfriend and the father of her nine-month-old son, remains a suspect. They say they don’t have enough evidence to charge him.
Now, Erica’s grandmother makes a plea for justice.
“Derek, we loved Erica and we loved the baby. Whatever you did to Erica, would you please let law enforcement know,” pleads Annie Wright, Erica’s grandmother.
Wright says Erica was with Derek the night she went missing. She says they were fighting because Erica thought he was seeing another woman in Appleton.
Erica Breadley’s mother thinks that something very much different occurred.
Erica’s mother thinks it went even further than that, saying she thinks he killed her.
News 10 tried contacting Derek to get his side of the story, but he didn’t return the call. Now, as the search continues, all Erica’s family can do is wait.
“My belief and hope is that she is still somewhere alive,” says Wright. (WIS TV)
Erica Bradley has been missing since early November of 2006 in Allendale, SC. Now Tim Miller and Texas EquuSearch have joined he search for the missing 17 year old Bradley.
The search attempts up to this point have turned up pieces of evidence here and there, but none of them led to Erica. Now, as time continues to pass and the trail gets colder by the day, the family says they’re more determined than ever to get answers.
Erica Bradley’s mother Jackie and the rest of the family will leave no stone unturned until they find her.
“I want to see her walk through those doors,” Jackie Bradley told News 12. “It’s been hard not knowing where she’s at.”
The trail has been a hard and long one for the entire family. Erica disappeared November 6 after leaving her job at a local Hardees. Since then, law enforcement turned up clothes, socks and shoes, pieces of hair extensions, and other things in the woods. But so far, those leads haven’t been enough. (WRDW)
With the leads not providing enough clues as to Erica Bradley’s whereabouts, enter Tim Miller and Texas Equusearch volunteers to the help.
“We want to search every square inch…and I truly don’t feel she’s very far away from us,” said Equusearch director Tim Miller.
Miller and his group are combing a few hundred square miles on foot, four wheelers, and with the help of a well-trained sense of smell. Miller says the mild landscape, relatively flat and dry, ill help the mission.
“This family needs closure. This town does,” Miller said. “It’s a terrible loss.”

17 year old Erica Bradley has been missing since last Monday when she was last seen leaving her job at the Hardees on Railroad Avenue West. Erica Bradley has a baby and her family has stated that Erica argued with the baby’s father, Derek Maner, the night she disappeared. Maner claims they had an argument and she walked away.
Investigators do not believe that Erica Bradley ran away. They are presently dragging the Savannah River. Police have found a pair of shoes that they believe are Erica’s. Also, Derek Maner has been named a suspect in her disappearance.
Sheriff Tom Carter, Jr., speaks about another grim possibility in the missing person case, “It’s been eight days. Even if she was just hurt, every day there is less and less chance of finding her alive. And I hate to say that, but that’s reality.”
But Monday night, the family was hopeful. Jackie Bradley couldn’t hold back the tears at a vigil for Erica’s return, “I want to see my baby.” (WISTV)
