Michelle Parker of Orlando, Fla., disappeared Thursday November 17 after she had appeared on "The People's Court" for a settlement of dispute with her ex-fiance, who is the father of her twin children. She went missing on the day her episode was aired. Their feud is about resolving a dispute about the $5,000 engagement ring that Parker, 32, allegedly drunkenly threw over a hotel balcony during an argument. She was last seen dropping off the couple's twins at Smith's home. Her truck was found abandoned a day later. Parker also filed a case for domestic violence with children against Smith.
Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney today met with the family of Michelle Parker and told them bringing the missing woman home safely is his agency's top priority. "I wanted to tell them face-to-face that this is my No.1 priority," Rooney said. "I'm not worried about overtime or extended resources."
Police this morning released a new photograph of missing mother Michelle Parker wearing a cross necklace and asked anyone who has seen the necklace to report it to police. Authorities say Parker was last heard from Thursday when a text message from her still-missing iPhone indicated she was in the Waterford Lakes area. Her Hummer sport-utility vehicle was found Friday on Orlando's west side.
