Michelle and Oprah

2 of 5
When Michelle woke up the next morning, she had a horrible feeling in the pit of her stomach. Mark was not on the boat, and Michelle knew in her heart that something was terribly wrong. "I started jogging around the whole island looking for him. Everybody kept telling me, 'Oh, he just went to go get something for your birthday.' I got progressively more hysterical. The captain said, 'I shouldn't tell you this, but he took a jet to Paris to set some diamonds.'"

Michelle's gut feeling was right—Mark never returned. Michelle's other hunch, that foul play was not involved, seems to be confirmed as well. "He's still alive and kicking," Michelle says, "and spending ridiculous amounts on his credit cards. He has cell phone numbers that I have been able to track to a certain extent, so [I know] he's out there. … I think he's on a sailboat in Italy or Greece sipping pastis."
