Florida Mom Missing After 'People's Court' Appearance

A Florida woman has gone missing the day after appearing with her ex-fiance on 'The People's Court.' According to WPBF, Michelle Parker, a 33-year-old mother of three, disappeared a day after she and her ex-fiance had a case heard on the TV court show.

On the show, which was taped months ago but just aired on Thursday, Parker's ex-fiance Dale Smith sued her for $5,000. In turn, she talked about their "tumultuous and violent" relationship, which she called "poison."

Parker's Hummer SUV was found outside Smith's apartment after the show aired on Thursday. There were no signs of struggle or blood, and investigators are maintaining hope she may still be alive. Police do not currently consider Smith a suspect in her disappearance.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, police and volunteers are currently searching for Parker, distributing Missing fliers and combing the area where her car was found for clues. They are urging anyone with information on her whereabouts to call the Orland Police Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477.

What little we know about this case right is eerily reminiscent of the infamous Jenny Jones murder, in which Scott Amedure was killed several days after bringing a male acquaintance on the show to reveal he was attracted to him. Amedure's family filed a $25 million wrongful death civil suit against the show, and the court initially ruled in their favor, but the decision was later overturned by the Michigan Supreme Court.

'The People's Court' is currently hosted by Judge Marilyn Milian, and TMZ-founder Harvey Levin serves as the show's host and legal reporter.

Exactly. Are you kidding? So he had someone else snatch her, of course he had to provide an alibi - wow, it's like women are worth nothing. Check his coworkers, family and friends, or he paid a hitman. Woww, I only hope they find her, but I think maybe not.Concrete. Dale leaves no traces .... sorry ~
