Michelle Parker Missing: Dive Teams Search Lake For Missing Florida Mom

Divers searching for a missing Florida mom searched the bottom of an Orlando-area lake on Wednesday only to come up empty handed.

Orlando police and the Orange County Sheriff's Office proceeded on what they called a "credible tip" in the missing persons investigation of Michelle Parker, a mother of three last seen dropping off her 3-year-old twins at their father's house, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

"We have been waiting for clues and tips to see if we can find her," Parker's mother, Yvonne Stewart, told the newspaper. "It's a double-edge sword. But if she is here, I hope we find her."

Since her disappearance in November, Orlando police say they have received over 700 tips regarding Parker, labeled the "People's Court Mom" for her appearance on the television program just days before vanishing, CBS reports.

In late January, authorities released video of Parker the day she vanished. The surveillance footage shows Parker collecting her order from a drive-through window in at a KFC restaurant in Casselberry, Fla.
