“Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Tammy Knickerbocker is asking for help in finding her missing daughter.
Lindsay Knickerbocker, 34, was last seen in Las Vegas on January 9 after being released from prison for assaulting an officer for taking her dog away.
Tammy added that she believed her daughter was not allowed to have her dog at the hotel, which led to an altercation between Lindsay and the police officer.

Her mother shared details about her last few conversations with her daughter, noting that Lindsay called her from a phone that was taken from a “guy down the street.”
Tammy said she didn’t recognize the number but received a voicemail message saying, “Please call me. Call me. I need help.”
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 Jan. 16.
She got a message on Facebook Messenger that said, “I’m fine, I’m fine, I’ll call you tomorrow.”
Tommy said he didn’t hear from Lindsey the next day. Two days later, she received another “strange” message from a man named Eric saying that his daughter had been seen in the tent.

The mother-of-three said she has not received any Facebook messages since then and believes she has been blocked from speaking to her daughter.
The reality television star pointed out that her daughter had “lots of drug problems.”

Despite having had two other similar situations with her daughter, Tammy mentioned that this time it felt “different.”
She worries that Lindsay is being “trafficked” and says she’s been reaching out to homeless shelters but hasn’t heard back about her daughter.
In 2007, Tammy joined seasons two and three of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County” (RHOC). He made several appearances in different seasons.
Tammy’s other daughter, Megan, shared on Facebook that Lindsey was missing and was asking for any details on her whereabouts.
“Has anyone seen her? Last contact was on January 9th and she was scared for her life. She hasn’t been heard from since. No trace at all…. Her name is Lindsay and She’s 5’5 and 110 lbs, brown eyes and blonde hair and 34 years old,” Megan Knickerbocker wrote in the caption alongside Lindsay’s photos.
Other “RHOC” stars, including Tamra Judge, took to their Instagram Stories to spread the word about their castmates’ missing daughter.

“It’s very, very close. But she’s really guilty … of everything she’s been doing,” Tammy said, referring to her daughter’s prison time.
“She has a lot of guilt 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.”
Tammy continued to say that she reached out to Facebook in hopes of finding her daughter’s location but received no response.
He also said he has been in contact with the Clark County clerk in Las Vegas since Lindsay was in jail.
