She was wearing a pink rain jacket, a pink Winnie the Pooh sweatshirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.
Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. Erica's photos are shown age-progressed to 18 years and 24 years, respectively. She was last seen when she left the house to walk her gray-and-white Shih Tzu dog between 3:00 and 3:30 p.m. on February 7, 1999. Police say around that time an elderly couple saw Erica and her dog walking in a nearby park, around a pond. When Erica didn't return home by 5:30 p.m. her family went looking for her. Later that evening, police say, Erica's dog was found by the same couple wandering alone at the nearby middle school, still attached to its leash. Police believe Erica was struck by a van driven by Christian Gabriel or someone close to him while walking her dog. The people in the van then took Erica's body away and disposed of it, never reporting the crime. Allegedly, those in the van had been shoplifting and were speeding away from the scene. Gabriel was charged with gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. In October 2005, Gabriel was found guilty of these charges. Baker remains have never been found.
