        I only played Definitive Edition and I never really thought that this quest was unfinished, seemed pretty clear to me that the kid was dead and the mother was in denial, as told by the man next to her.

        TLDR: Kid's dead, the doll has no use.

          To likely finish this quest you probably can find erma by holding the doll in your hand and walking everywhere

            I really wonder why did they remove this in definitive edition, i was looking for Erma everywhere until i eventually made it here. Either completely scratch any evidence and have Fara not look for her daughter anymore else ppl will keep looking for that quest.

              I killed everyone in Fort Joy except this suffering delusional mother so now she is also the only person in the entire place

                so i found a girl in knile's underground area, her name wasn't Erma though but she looked exactly as described and said she was playing on the beach when she was taken and she was not strong enough to open the grate. I helped her and she just ran out and disappeared. I couldn't show her the doll but it just seemed as if she was Erma. But guessing they just ditched as that quest as it doesn't appear in my journal.

                  My crew was having a hard time overcoming that level 4 hump, so we slaughtered some of the fort joy riffraff, solving some such unsolvable problems for them in the process. Such wonderful flexibility is the brilliance of divinity.

                    Update for anyone who recently got this game and is wondering: This was an unfinished quest prior to definitive addition where you could talk to Jeth next to Fara and then turn back around to Fara and tell her Erma was dead and get some EXP. The option to find Erma was going to be added but ultimately was for whatever reasons. When Definitive Edition released, they went ahead an removed any trace of it so there isn't anything to really do here. If you're wondering, yes Erma was actually dead and Jeth was telling the truth (that was how it was going to be implemented anyway, you were going to speak to Erma's ghost in their hometown graveyard to continue the quest).

                      Is this quest completely removed or what? I talked to her as Ifan in my latest playthrough and the quest did not even appear in the journal. Talked to her with all party members but still no update in journal.

                        You can buy dolls/toys from multiple NPC's in fort joy....just because the kid is holding one doesn't mean they removed a quest, I believe he is simply a kid with a toy. As far as the quest goes they left many things open for you to figure out, such as no way to get buddy(the dog) back with his companion. The beauty of Divinity.

                          This quest doesn't seem to exist in the Definitive edition either. I got the doll from her but thats it. Guess they just decided to get rid of this quest.

                              She gave you a doll in this quest... did anyone notice a similar doll can be bought from the kid under fort joy that can take you to marshes with a boat?

                                Is this quest broken? I have visited her as a human, talked to the husband or friend, whatever the hell he is, and told the woman that the child is dead and blahbity blah blah and nothing...
