According to CBS affiliate WKMG, authorities located the missing woman's vehicle, a black Hummer, on the west side of Orlando.

"She's an amazing person and we just want to see her home," Parker's sister Lauren told the station.

Orlando police said Parker has a violent history with her ex-boyfriend, Dale Smith. He has not been named as a suspect. Smith's father said he was home when she went missing.

Family and friends handed out flyers throughout Orlando on Friday as they hope for the best.

"We're going to find her and I'm hoping, I'm praying for a miracle," Parker's mother Yvonne Stewart told WKMG.

The family said they became worried when her brother texted Parker asking where she was and she responded "Waterford."

"The police said her phone was never in Waterford. They searched the towers, that was a decoy," said Stewart.

Parker appeared as a defendant Thursday on an episode of "The People's Court" with her ex-boyfriend over a $5,000 engagement ring she lost during a fight. It is not known when the show was recorded.

Parker is described as a white woman, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with short dark brown hair.

Anyone with information about Parker's whereabouts is urged to call the Orlando Police Department at 321-235-5300.
