• Witness: Missing mom's Hummer seen day before found


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.,None - It's been almost one week and there is still no sign of missing mother of three Michelle Parker.

    An eyewitness claims she saw Parker's Hummer parked at an apartment complex as early as Thursday night, which was 24 hours before it was found on Friday afternoon.

    Parker has never been in trouble with the law, but WFTV learned that she's had to call for help.

    According to a Seminole County sheriff's report, last year Parker told deputies she called for help over a fight with her ex-fiance who left her stranded at Universal Studios.  Parker told investigators that Dale Smith became violent with her, took off in her vehicle and took her iPhone.

    WFTV found out more about the troubled relationship between Parker and Smith, who is the father of her 3-year-old twins.

    Police said there are no suspects, and their focus at this point is finding the missing mother.

    An eyewitness told WFTV she saw Parker's Hummer on a curb at the Walden Palms condominium complex at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday when she was walking her dog. That is only hours when Parker's cellphone went dead, investigators said.

    "Just turn her loose and you need to feed her give her water. I know she's scared. She's all alone. I know she knows we're looking for her. I know she feels it and she's tough. She's hanging in there for those kids," said Parker's mother, Yvonne Stewart.

    Parker's mother said she's trying to remain hopeful that the 33-year-old mother of three will be found safe in time for Thanksgiving.

    Orlando police Chief Paul Rooney met with Stewart and said he told her they're trying to bring Parker home safely.

    "I'm not worried about overtime. I'm not worried about extended resources. That's our goal," Rooney said.

    Orlando police are working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on the case.

    They are keeping the information they've gathered to themselves. It's unclear how much they're sharing with the volunteers who are going out and searching for the missing mother.
