Orlando, Fla. – On Saturday, police raided a home in the Orlando area searching for missing woman Michelle Parker. According to a local news outlet, Orange County property records indicate the house is registered to Dale Smith — Michelle’s ex-fiance and the father of her twins.
Michelle’s family told CF News 13 that Smith’s family lives in the home, however, residents refused to speak with the local news outlet.

Neighbors, however, were willing to talk and said the SWAT team tear-gassed the house on Rose Blvd. They also noted that someone was placed into a patrol car by authorities.
Police said no one was arrested, and would not divulge to News 13 exactly what they were searching for, but did say they were looking for any clues that may give them an indication where they might find Michelle.
In addition, on Saturday searchers with dogs combed the Lake Nona area in an effort to find the missing mother of three.
A reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Michelle is being offered in the amount of $13,000 by the missing woman’s family and Crimeline, however, an anonymous donor has come forward with an additional $50,000.
To collect the $50,000, someone must call with information by Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011 at midnight. This is because the family believes Michelle is being held captive and wants to bring her home as soon as possible. The phone number to call with information for the reward is 407-687-9740.
Michelle, 33, was last seen on Nov. 17, 2011, after dropping off her 3-year-old twins at Smith’s home. She also has an 11-year-old son from a prior relationship. Her Hummer was found on Nov. 18, however, authorities continue to search for her iPhone.
The couple taped a ‘People’s Court’ episode — which aired on the day she vanished — in June regarding a $5,000 engagement ring that Smith claimed Michelle threw over a hotel balcony when the two were in a heated, alcohol-fueled argument.
The missing woman had reportedly begun a new relationship with a man named Nate Mitchell and was happy with her new life, according to her family.
Michelle is described as being 5-foot-6, weighing about 140 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. Anyone with information regarding Michelle Parker is urged to call authorities at 800-423-TIPS.
