Michelle Parker

Call it the case of the missing People's Court mom. Michelle Parker of Florida disappeared hours after a contentious episode of The People's Court featuring Parker and ex-fiancé Dale Smith, the dad of her 3-year old twins, aired last Thursday.

Parker was thought to be in the Waterford Lakes area of Orlando, where her Hummer was found, according to ABC. Parker's family and friends had set up a search camp on Tuesday in an effort to find the 33-year-old.

"I know in my heart of heart that she's been carjacked, that the people saw an expensive car and a girl who looks like she has money and I know they've made a mistake and I know that they want to fix this and I forgive them," said Parker's mom Yvonne Stewart on Today Tuesday morning. "It's Thanksgiving. She wants to come home to her babies. We want her home."

Ex-fiancé Smith is not a person of interest and has been cooperating fully in the search. Yet during The People's Court episode they both appeared on, Parker suggested that Smith had become violent with her in the past.

"He gets pretty malicious and vindictive and he's a mean person, especially when he's been drinking," Parker said. "He shouldn't have put his hands on me and shouldn't have put his hands on me prior."

The dispute that prompted the People's Court appearance was over a $5,000 engagement ring that Parker threw over a balcony in a drunken fight with Smith. Judge Marilyn Milian ruled that Parker and Smith split the difference for the ring at $2500 each.

On the episode, Milian chided Smith, an ex-Marine, for his hobby of attending sci-fi conventions in costume.

"[Smith] is crying every time I talk to him on the phone," said Stewart to ABC. "He loves my daughter. They just didn't get along."

Stewart also said her daughter regretted her appearance on the show.

It was "the most humiliating experience of my life," Stewart said her daughter told her. "I don't even ever want to see it. I wish I had never gone."

She didn't throw the ring OVER THE BALCONY...she tossed it to the sissy looking man...and he couldn't even catch it...the reporter and the judge should have gotten that right...but, neither listened intently enough to get it right

PARKER DID NOT throw the ring over the balony...the sissy couldn't catch it when she 'tossed' it at him...his deflection made it go over the was ll in front of the police...get it straight...the judge should have gotten it straight also..what should she have done when he asked for it like a little cry baby in front of the police? put it gently into his hand? get a life

what did this beautiful woman have to be humiliated about..other than her picking a jerk and an abuser for her chldren's father...I don't thin she would have hooked up with someone so below her if she thought he was the person he was...her mother is a nut...and to say her daughter was car-jacked....why didn't they take the car...are you looking at yourself and listening to things you say ? You are the embarrassment...if I even had an inkling someone had hurt my daughter at any time...he would have had to call the police on me..for beating him with the nearest blunt object...I WOULD NOT BE HUGGING HIM...OR SHOWING UP IN INTERVIEWS WITH SUCH ELABORATE HAIRDOS...I WOULDN'T EVEN THINK OF COMBING MY HAIR...SHE IS ALL DOLLED UP....SICK
