‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ star Tammy Knickerbocker searches for her ‘missing’ daughter after her release from prison
“Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Tammy Knickerbocker asks for help in finding her missing daughter.
Lindsey Knickerbocker, 34, was last seen Jan. 9 in Las Vegas after being released from jail for allegedly assaulting an officer for taking her dog away.
Tammy added that she thought her daughter wasn’t allowed to have her dog in a hotel, which led to the altercation between Lindsey and the cop.

Her mother shared details with Fox News Digital of her last interactions with her daughter and noted that Lindsey called her from a phone borrowed from a “guy on the street.”
Tammy said she didn’t recognize the number, but received a voicemail saying, “Please call me. Please call me. I need assistance.”
After the phone exchange, Tammy said she didn’t hear from her daughter until she received a strange message she thought was from Lindsey on January 16.
She received a notification on Facebook Messenger saying, “I’m fine, I’m fine. I’ll call you tomorrow.”
Tammy said she didn’t hear from Lindsey the next day. Two days later, she received another “strange” message from someone named Eric saying her daughter had been seen in a tent.

The mother-of-three said she had not received a Facebook message since and believed she had been blocked from speaking to her daughter.
The reality TV star pointed out that her daughter has “a lot of drug problems”.
She is aware that she took meth and says “she’s basically a drug addict at this point”, but understands that Lindsey needs help.

Despite two other similar situations like this happening to her daughter, Tammy mentioned that this time it felt “different.”
She fears Lindsey is being ‘trafficked’ and said she has contacted homeless shelters but has heard nothing from her daughter.
In 2007, Tammy joined Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Ocean County” (RHOC) in seasons two and three. She has made several appearances throughout the different seasons.
Tammy’s other daughter, Megan, shared on Facebook that Lindsey was missing and is asking for details of her whereabouts.
“Has anyone seen her? Last contact was January 9 and she was in fear for her life. No one has heard from her since. Absolutely disappeared without a trace…her name is Lindsey and she is 5ft 5in and 110lbs, brown eyes and blonde hair and 34 years old,” Megan Knickerbocker wrote in the caption along with photos of Lindsey.
Other “RHOC” stars, including Tamra Judge, took to her Instagram story to publicize the disappearance of her coworkers’ daughter.

“It’s very, very close. But she’s really guilty of…everything she’s done,” Tammy said, referring to her daughter’s prison sentence.
“She’s got a lot of guilt on her right now. She’s not suicidal, but she’s…a proud person in a way…she’s very stubborn, but we have a good relationship.”

She also said she has been in contact with the Clark County Clerk in Las Vegas since Lindsey was in jail.
