ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Orlando's police chief says a former fiancé is the primary focus of the investigation into a woman who went missing after appearing on "The People's Court" with the suspect to resolve a dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring.

Thirty-three-year-old Michelle Parker of Orlando was last seen Nov. 17. It was the day the previously taped episode of the case between her and Dale Smith aired. The abandoned SUV of the mother of three was found the next day.

Chief Paul Rooney said at a news conference Monday that Smith of
Orlando is the probe's focus.

The police chief says Smith had refused to take a polygraph test and there are no other suspects.

Attempts to find a telephone listing for Smith were unsuccessful. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
