Michelle Parker, the mother of three has been missing in Orlando, FL since November 17, 2011.

“I still don’t have that answer,” Erickson recalled in a video posted Nov. 17 on the Facebook page created for the 33-year-old missing mother of three who vanished in 2011.
But new evidence expected to be released by Orlando police later today will show never-before-seen footage of Michelle Parker that might help investigators get closer to finding her.

Could the Skeletal Remains Found in Central Florida While Search for Yessenia Suarez & Her Children Be that of Missing Jennifer Kesse, Tracy Ocasio or Michelle Parker
Could this be a break for families of missing loved ones?
Skeletal remains were found in a wooded area near State Road 417 over the weekend as police searched for missing mom Yessenia Suarez and her two children. However, it was determined that the remains were not those of the mom and her children as they had been there too long. The three had just gone missing on October 23, 2013. So who did authorities find? As the Orlando Sentinel reports, such a discovery brings both hope and anxious moments to the Florida families of missing loved ones like Jennifer Kessee, Tracy Ocasio and Michelle Parker. Drew Kesse, the father of missing Jennifer contacted authorities after reading the story of the discovery to inquire whether it might be his daughter. as Drew said, “I simply wait. One of these times, it’s going to be Tracy. It’s going to be Jennifer. It has to be.” God Bless these parents of missing children and let them have some solace, peace and closure.
“You don’t want to get your hopes up because it hurts too much when the answer is negative,” said Elizabeth Ocasio, whose daughter Tracy vanished in 2009 after leaving a bar with James Hataway, whom she met a few weeks before.
Detectives later found Tracy Ocasio’s car near Hataway’s home in Ocoee. Police have said Hataway is the only suspect in the 27-year-old’s disappearance. He was subsequently sentenced to life in prison for the attempted murder of another woman.
Ocasio is one of several women missing in Central Florida in cases where authorities suspect foul play.
Jennifer Kesse disappeared from her condo near Mall at Millenia in 2006. Orlando police found her car about a mile away, and detectives have said they think the 24-year-old was abducted.
Michelle Parker, a mother of three, vanished in November 2011 after dropping off her young twins with her ex-fiancé, Dale Smith. Orlando police said Smith is the only suspect in the case, but he has not been charged in connection with Parker’s disappearance.
Say a prayer for all of these families that they may find answers and peace.

The following should not come as a shock to any one …
Dale Smith Jr., the estranged fiance of missing Michelle Parker, has been officially named the primary suspect by Orlando police in the disappearance of the 33 year old mother of three. Michelle Parker has been missing since 11/17/11. From the outset of this missing persons case, we had questioned why the family had stated that the ex-fiance was not a suspect. Even though every initial sign said quite the opposite.
“We had to look at every aspect of the case before we could come out publicly and state that Mr. Smith is our primary focus,” Police Chief Paul Rooney said at a news conference. “We will not rest until Michelle is found.”
Parker and Smith battled on “The People’s Court” over who would get a $5,000 engagement ring, and Judge Marilyn Milan suggested that the two split the proceeds and stay apart from one another.
Smith has refused to take a polygraph test, Rooney said.
The announcement that Dale Smith Jr was a primary suspect came just two days after police raided and searched the home of Dale Smith Jr’s father.
“We are officially naming Dale Smith, the ex-fiancé, as the primary suspect” in Michelle Parker’s disappearance, Orlando Police Chief Paul Rooney said at a press conference.
The announcement came two days after a SWAT team raided Smith’s father’s home to execute a search warrant. Several people were restrained outside the house with flex cuffs during the search, which police said was standard procedure.
According to police records, Smith had a violent past and the couple had a troubled past with cases of domestic violence. Oh no, say it isn’t so … according to reports, Dale Smith has hired prominent Orlando defense attorney Mark Nejame.
According to public records, the couple was involved in a domestic violence case involving children in 2009. Parker and Smith have 3-year-old twins together.
Public records also showed Smith was previously convicted on drug and domestic battery charges.
Smith joined the U.S. Marines in 1996, but was dishonorably discharged as a private in 2003.
Michelle Parker, the mother of three has been missing in Orlando, FL since November 17, 2011. The family has increased the reward for missing Michelle Parker by $50,000 for any information that leads to her “SAFE” return. There is also a Sunday midnight deadline for this reward.
The reward for information in the case of a missing mother is increasing significantly.
Yvonne Stewart, Michelle Parker’s mother, announced Friday that a private donor is now offering an additional reward of $50,000 for her daughter’s safe return. The reward amount had stood at $13,000.
“If you know anything in your conscience, please do it now. If your tip is the one that leads us to her safe return, you’ll get $50,000 and we will gladly give it to you,” Stewart said Friday.
Those with information are asked to call 407-687-9740.
33 year old Michelle Parker disappeared on November 17, 2011 the same day she appeared on a taped episode of “The People’s Court” with her ex-fiance Dale Smith. Michelle Parker was last seen wearing a silver-cross necklace, jeans and a Florida Gators zip-up hoodie.
Her family has revealed she left a nine-second message to her father the day before she went missing and wanted him to call her.
‘Hey Dad, it’s about 8:40. This is Michelle on Wednesday morning,’ she said on the voicemail. ‘I know that you’re at work, but call me when you have lunch or you have break or the end of your day.’
