ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — More than a dozen detectives and hundreds of volunteers continued searching Tuesday for an Orlando woman who went missing after her episode of “The People’s Court” aired on television.
Orlando police say 33-year-old Michelle Parker was last seen Thursday, the day the episode aired. Authorities say her SUV was found on Friday and family members believe she was carjacked. They say it’s unlike Parker to disappear because she has three children and a job as a bartender.
Parker and her ex-boyfriend were on the show to resolve a dispute about a $5,000 engagement ring
Parker’s brother, Dustin Erickson, says the TV show didn’t have anything to do with her disappearance as it was taped three months ago.
He is pleading for someone to come forward with information.
