The family of a missing mother of three was heading a search in Volusia County on Tuesday after a tipster said they spotted the woman walking along State Road A1A in Daytona Beach.
Michelle Parker, 33, disappeared Nov. 17 after dropping off her 3-year-old twins with Dale Smith Jr., who is the father of the children. Earlier the same day, an episode of “The People’s Court” aired nationwide featuring the couple in a dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring.
Authorities have named Smith, 40, as the primary suspect in Parker’s disappearance, although he has not been arrested and was granted custody of the twins.
The tipster said a person who resembled Parker was seen walking along SR A1A over the weekend.
Daytona Beach police said one officer would assist volunteers in their search for Parker.
Also, Orlando police said investigators subpoenaed Smith’s mother and questioned her on Tuesday.
