Police, family searching for missing Orlando woman

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) " Police in Florida are searching for an Orlando woman who went missing after appearing with an ex-boyfriend on an episode of "The People's Court."

Family members told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday they believe 33-year-old Michelle Parker was carjacked shortly after her appearance on the show last Thursday. Parker sent a text message to a family member later Thursday afternoon indicating she was in Orlando's Waterford Lakes area. Her SUV was found Friday in Orlando.

Parker has an 11-year-old son. The father of her 3-year-old twins is the ex-boyfriend who appeared on television with her.

Orlando police spokesman Jim Young says they are investigating all leads. He urges anyone with information to contact police.

Yvonne Stewart has made numerous pleas over the past few days for her daughter's return.
