ABC News' Anna Wild reports:

http://fox17online.com/2013/12/31/newly-found-videos-of-teleka-patrick/#axzz2pFVuGmqv" rel="nofollow - New video obtained by a TV news station  of Teleka Patrick, a Michigan doctor who mysteriously vanished nearly one month ago, may be the clue investigators have been searching for to help discover her whereabouts.

The video shows Patrick, 30, buying flowers for, cooking for and singing and talking to a mysterious possible love interest.

"I just imagine you are here with me, even though I know you're not," Patrick says in the video. "I got dressed up for you."

Her family says they thought Patrick was single, and now, because of this discovery, police are scouring her computers "just to see if there were any patterns in her intercommunication," said the missing woman's sister, Tanesha Patrick.

"I just figure you do your best and I will do my best and we give each other a chance," Patrick continues in the video.

Patrick was a first-year medical resident in psychiatry in Kalamazoo, Mich. She was last seen on Dec. 5 in a surveillance video at a Radisson Hotel just five minutes from her home.

According to investigators, a hotel employee said she appeared agitated when he turned her away after trying to pay for a room in cash.

Two hours later, more than 100 miles away, Patrick's car was found in a ditch on the side of the road with a flat tire. Her wallet was inside, but no sign of car keys.

Police say no one reported seeing anyone on the road that night.

"There's no words in the dictionary to describe my feelings right now," said Patrick's mother, Irene Patrick. "It is the worst nightmare. I really want the nightmare to be over."

Patrick's cell phone and purse were found at the hospital where she worked, but so far, there are no leads.

My first thought was maybe she killed herself. I did a quick google search and her ex husband is saying she had mental issues so I may be right.

^^Lol it's been a phenomenon on social networking for a while. I could scroll through my timeline right now and see some girl talking about how she misses her "boo" or how she "wishes you were here" for weeks without ever saying a name because the boo in question doesn't exist Stern Smile That was literally the first thing I thought when I saw the case on the news.

I'm sad she's missing but if she was making videos for an actual male suitor I would be really surprised, especially considering how ambiguous she was when referring to him.

Group: Protection Order Filed Against Doctor Prior to Disappearance



Read more:  http://fox17online.com/2014/01/02/group-protection-order-filed-against-doctor-prior-to-disappearance/#ixzz2pHe4ZOgs" rel="nofollow - http://fox17online.com/2014/01/02/group-protection-order-filed-against-doctor-prior-to-disappearance/#ixzz2pHe4ZOgs
ALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. — The Find Teleka group issued a statement Wednesday detailing new developments in the case of the missing Kalamazoo doctor.

The statement, attributed to her parents Mattahias and Irene Patrick, mentions a personal protection order filed against Teleka prior to her December 2013 disappearance.

Her parents also address newly discovered videos that have called some to question her mental state.

“Regardless of Teleka’s emotional state, we believe wholeheartedly that she has encountered some harm or danger,” the letter says.

Patrick, 30, was last seen Dec. 5, 2013 and was reported missing the next day after failing to show up to work.

Full statement:

There are so many details that have been revealed during the course of this investigation that confuse and hurt us all the more. We would like to thank Ismael Calderon for coming forward and giving us some insight as to what Teleka may have been thinking/ experiencing on the days leading up to her disappearance. We have the utmost respect for him. Regarding the YouTube videos that have been found, we do not have any information as to who or what she is referring to. We have had no indication of a recent significant other, besides a relationship that ended early this year.

Regardless of Teleka’s emotional state, we believe wholeheartedly that she has encountered some harm or danger. It is unlike her to go any significant length of time without any contact with family or friends.

Concerning the protection order that was filed against Teleka earlier this year, we have been advised by the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Department that the release of this information could possibly impede the investigation into her disappearance. We encourage you to contact the Kalamazoo Sheriffs Department and the FBI with any questions that you have. Throughout the course of this investigation there have been more questions than answers and all we want is for our daughter to be brought home. We need closure. We need answers.

The fact that Teleka’s car was found with a flat tire on I-94 has not changed. The fact that she has not been seen since December 5th has not changed. These are the facts that frighten us. Teleka is missing and we want whoever has her or has harmed her in any way to come forward.

Teleka is our eldest child. One of three bright stars in our lives, and we won’t be whole again until she is found.

If you have any questions, please contact us at findteleka@gmail.com or call Kimberly Eddings at (202) 422-4430.
 
Thank you,
Mattahais and Irene Patrick

You're absolutely right...

But it's the difference between the kid who cuts himself and his parents admit to the doctor that he cuts himself.

Or the kid who cuts himself whose parents try to sweep it under the rug and pin it on the kid next door.

It's about being upfront with those who are making an effort to help. You have a support group dedicated to searching for this woman, don't simply say she was a doctor, a straight a student, and everything is peachy.

If she has a history mental illness, it is very relevant to this case and should've been disclosed from the start.

It just looks sketchy when you reach out for help and hide a detail that major.

Reports are saying she was mentally ill and stalking Marvin Sapp.

From Black and Missing:

"Not sure how true this article is, but since it's the latest update, I will post: 

Teleka Patrick, a missing Kalamazoo-based medical resident, was stalking gospel singer Marvin Sapp prior to her disappearance, according to a Grand Rapids news station.

WOOD-TV reported late Thursday that Sapp filed for a personal protection order in Kent County in September. In the court filing, Sapp stated that Patrick, 30, had been referring to him as her husband and had moved from California to western Michigan to join his church, the Lighthouse Full Light Center Church in Grand Rapids.

Her family had previously stated that she decided to attend Western Michigan University for its residential psychiatry program.

Sapp said Patrick had contacted his three children and had been to his home, and that he had “over 400 page(s) of correspondence from her to which I have never responded.” He added that Patrick’s stalking had gone on for at least a year prior to her moving to Michigan.

“Throughout my career, my family and I have fallen victim to inappropriate attempts to contact me by several unknown individuals,” Sapp said in a statement to the TV station Thursday. “As a father of three and pastor of one of the largest congregations in west Michigan, I cannot take this kind of obsessive attention lightly. Given these previous acts, I have taken several security measures, which have included obtaining a protective order to ensure our safety.”

Sapp could not be reached for comment.

Patrick was last seen Dec. 5 in the parking lot of Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo by a shuttle driver with the Radisson Hotel. Her car was found later that evening, nearly 100 miles away in a ditch off I-94 near Porter, Ind.

In a statement Thursday, Patrick’s family said they had been advised by the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Department that information regarding the protection order could impede investigations.

“We’ve been asked not to speculate or comment about it. We encourage anyone to contact the Kalamazoo department,” said Kimberly Eddings, Patrick’s cousin. “It was mentioned so that there was no misunderstanding that the family was trying to hide anything. We don’t want Teleka to become one of the forgotten. People go missing every day; there are all sorts of crimes being committed.”

Patrick’s former husband, Ismael Calderon, also told the Grand Rapids TV station Wednesday that it was possible she had a serious mental condition and could be in danger.

“(Patrick) started to have delusions, paranoia; she started to hear voices,” Calderon said. “Maybe the voices that she heard wasn’t God. Maybe the voices she heard pointed to a serious condition.”

Calderon could not be reached for comment Thursday.

Calderon was married to Patrick from 2006 to 2011, and after their marriage ended, the two did not stay in contact but were not on bad terms, private investigator Carl Clatterbuck said.

Calderon has not been questioned by Indiana State Police or the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office, according to police.


Patrick’s sister, 27-year-old social worker Tenesha Patrick, said she was unaware of any mental diagnoses Teleka may have had but appreciated Calderon coming forward. She has been following the case from her home in Cambridge, Mass.

Tensha Patrick was disappointed to hear that investigators had not interviewed Calderon.

“I know that his name was given to detectives. ... He wasn’t interviewed, and that’s definitely unfortunate,” Tenesha Patrick said. “He felt he needed to bring his perspective to the story. We’re definitely thankful that he shared this perspective and vocalized that.”

Tenesha Patrick added that Calderon had never voiced concern about Teleka Patrick’s mental state throughout the marriage.

Kalamazoo and Indiana State Police said that they are still investigating but have no updates on the case.

I honestly think whoever she was talking about in those videos just does not exist. I really hope she's found safe. It's scary to think a medical professional was treating others when she herself may have had a mental disorder.

I would assume the majority have mental breaks. It's strenuous. And I've heard of people committing suicide for not getting in/doing poorly while in.

However, she seemed to have a severe personality disorder. I'm surprised it went unnoticed/unreported.

and the 1% that kinda knows it, its not his birth name.. and he existed. 

but yea.. i hope she's found.. sounds like she was kidnapped.

Yeah but lots of people see therapists, psychiatrists, etc. But this girl was out of touch with reality. There is a big difference between having issues and being crazy sorry don't wanna use that word. But she was in another world.

Not to be disrespectful, but her family doesn't seem to want to believe that she may not be in her right mind.

It's possible that she never displayed any mental issues to them as well, but..

Psychiatrists/Psychologists are the craziest ppl in real life.  I speculate that's because it takes a crazy person to know one--seriously.  So I'm not surprised that she specialized in this field and had issues herself.

I read the nurses forum and the last 2 lonnnng posts do sound like her possibly.  At first she seems logical then the posts start to sound a bit off.  Tjat article about Marvin Sapp and her stalking him is very tellingGeek

Could be foul play or she did dissapear on her own volition.  Really hard to tell at this point.  I hope she is found alive and well...

I do think her family knew she had issues but hid those facts so that authorities would search hard for her and not consider other angles.

There was a HBO (I think) show about a therapist (Gabriel Byrne) in therapy. I watched a few episodes because of him and Diane Wiest who played his therapist. I got much love for both of them as actors, but them 3-4 episodes were all I could stand.

This.

A little over a month ago I felt like I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, and I wasn't feeling like myself. When I talked to my mom during that period, she automatically knew something was up...she said I sounded stressed...and this was over the phone.

Parents know when something isn't right w/their kids. I find it a bit hard to believe that in 5 years, her husband discovered something that her family of 31 years didn't.

For some reason I'm not getting a kidnap vibe from this story. I'm sensing that she wandered off.

wandered off without a trace.. with $100? 
she's been gone for like 2.5 weeks now.. who can make far on $100.. and without anyone seeing you? 

unless she just went completely crazy and is living on the street in rags mumbling to herself.. and ppl look over her..

My thoughts...

I believe that the ex-husband's account has merit. 

You can be educated, intelligent and mentally ill. 

A lot of health professionals go into specialties that have personal relevance to them either by way of themselves or a close relative. 

I hope she is returned safely.

Or maybe she staged it. She could've had more than $100. She left her belongings at her job to go pay for a hotel in cash.

She's talking to a mystery person in a video that she filmed.

The flat-tire, keys, 100 miles in 2 hours just adds up a bit too perfectly.

The paying for the hotel in cash/deleted twitter acct leads me to believe that she wanted to be untraceable...that's the only reason I feel like there was no foul play.

Maybe ppl were starting to get wind of the Marvin Sapp ordeal and she wanted to get away. Idk.

Good girl I was also thinking along those lines also. she could've had more than $100 and the person knew to leave the last $100 behind. A hotel night average is a little above $100 with taxes and all. If she was kidnapped her twitter account would still be active since the kidnappers wouldn't know her password or knowledge that shes even on twitter. Can't they trace/track her phone?

I watched parts of 3 of the vids.  She sang in 2 of them--has a nics voice. 

In one she's cooking an omlette and its pretty boring.  She doesn't mention a name in any of them in the parts I saw which is kind of strange but not entirely unheard of.

Sugab--she left her purse and phone at work.

I fear the worst......Cry

I find it weird that she left her purse and cellphone at work but kept $100 on her.....

Maybe she was meeting someone, called the person when she got the flat tire to pick her up and left with them....Hopefully she is alive.

It is clear from those videos she has mental issues. She probably has a crush on someone and the videos and cooking is her way to express herself. Maybe she found out he is already involved and it put her over the edge. So she staged the kidnapping as a means to get attention...especially from the one she loves. 

I hope she staged it and gets help. Too many stories of missing people coming up. Either way, it is a sad case.

It depends what type of disorder she may have. Her disorder could have be well managed and an event could have  triggered it. But since mental health is so stigmatized in the black community most people will still go about their lives until they are diagnosed. By the evidence shown, she seems like she does have a mental illness. Not ever illness is the same and many illness are difficult to to notice by average people.

I'm currently in school pursing my degree in Psychology (my goal is to become a Clinical Psychologist) although I'm very logical, and mentally stable...some of my instructors whom happened to be licensed Psychologists were bat sh*t crazy. Even though I've never suffered from any type of mental illness, nor has any of my immediate family members, I seem to attract a lot of mentally unstable individuals both male and female. This has been an ongoing cycle for the past 10 yrs. they seem to naturally navigate towards me, this can be a good thing but also it can be a bad thing

Ahhhh NO. Theoretically we as human beings have very little control over the people we attract. However we DO have control of the people the we allow into ours lives on a continuous basis. When I start to see those fatal red flags that are associated with mental illness or anything that I feel is shady or negative, I distance myself from those individuals immediately. Therefore I don't "keep" them in my life. Because I refuse to deal with that in my personal life. No offense to anyone suffering from mentall illness.

Four-months ago Teleka Patrick, 30, left Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she worked as a first-year resident, and was never seen again. Authorities believe that today a fisherman may have found her body in the same lake where her car was discovered back in December.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement just after 2:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday afternoon:



“On April 6, 2014 a fisherman found a body in Lake Charles in Porter, Indiana. The identity is unknown at this time. The Indiana State Police is investigating the incident. The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office has no further comment at this time.”

Details surrounding Patrick's disappearance remain scarce

Patrick's family released this statement:

“Our family was informed that a body was found that may be our daughter Teleka Patrick. We are waiting for official confirmation from the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Department and have no comment at this time. Thank you for your continued prayers-we ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

An autopsy has identified the body recovered from a northwestern Indiana lake as that of a missing Michigan doctor Teleka Patrick.

A cause of death has not been released, but the Lake County Coroner’s Office said Wednesday that fingerprints confirmed the body Patrick's.



Police and FBI agents searched the same lake on Jan. 23 for Patrick, but her body was http://www.forharriet.com/2014/04/body-found-in-indiana-lake-may-be-that.html" rel="nofollow - discovered by a fisherman on April 6 .

She had been missing since December, when her Lexus was found abandoned nearby along Interstate 94.

Full autopsy reports are scheduled to be released tomorrow.

This is so sad.  She thought Warren Sapp was communicating with her through her thoughts but you can also tell she knew something was wrong with her.  I think she killed herself because she had a moment of clarity maybe and realized that she was completely schizophrenic and her life was about to fall apart with the restraining order?   She was even treating herself with drugs for the condition.  They commit suicide pretty often from what I understand.  Poor babyCry

A few answers...

KALAMAZOO, MI — Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller confirmed the body  http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2014/04/report_teleka_patrick_may_be_b.html" rel="nofollow - found in a northern Indiana lake Sunday  is missing Kalamazoo Dr. Teleka Patrick during a  http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2014/04/live_blog_teleka_patrick_press.html#incart_river_default" rel="nofollow - press conference Wednesday  at his office.

"The female has been positively identified of that of Dr. Teleka Patrick," Fuller said at the press conference. "The cause of death seems to be consistent with that of an accidental drowning."

Friends and family of Patrick have awaited official confirmation since her body was discovered by a fisherman floating at the south end of Lake Charles in Porter, Ind. just a few hundred feet from where her car was found abandoned on I-94 in Indiana on Dec. 5.

Fuller said Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris had difficulty identifying the body as Patrick yesterday because it had severely decomposed, but $100 in cash, a pager and keys to her Lexus were found in the pocket of the coat she was wearing, which is consistent with what authorities believe Patrick was carrying with her that night.

Harris was eventually able to definitively rule the body was Patrick through her fingerprints. 

Fuller confirmed Patrick's family was notified Wednesday morning that the body was in fact Patrick.

Fuller said that while there is a four-foot fence surrounding Lake Charles, it is worn down in several places and it would have been easy to get past it.

While police had originally stated they believed Patrick was heading to Chicago the night of her disappearance to stay with a family member, he said her true destination was to see an acquaintance in St. Louis. He said police held on to this information for some time since this was one of the only places she was likely to resurface if she was hiding.

Fuller said it was unlikely Patrick intended to stop her car near mile marker 23 in Indiana. He said she was forced to stop because of her flat tire.

Fuller said the search for Patrick was greatly hampered by  http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2014/04/teleka_patrick_search_hindered.html#incart_river_default" rel="nofollow - brutal winter conditions that ramped up only days after Patrick disappeared; leaving much of the area covered by ice and snow until recently. 

Throughout the past four months, Indiana and Kalamazoo authorities conducted several ground searches of the area where her car was located, including a searching Lake Charles  http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2014/04/police_volunteers_conduct_exte.html" rel="nofollow - as recently as April 1 .

When asked if the investigation was over, Fuller said he doesn't believe any new information will surface.

"Unless new information surfaces, this investigation will be closed," Fuller said. "I do believe it is as solved as this is going to get."

Patrick, 30, went missing after working a shift at Borgess Medical Center on Gull Road where she was completing first year of a four-year residency in psychiatry in the Western Michigan University School of Medicine.

After finishing her shift that night, Patrick got a ride from a co-worker to the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites in downtown Kalamazoo. She then tried to get a room at the hotel with $100 she borrowed from a co-worker, a courtesy shuttle driver gave her a ride back to her Lexus in the Borgess parking lot.

At about 8 p.m., she was seen getting into her car and driving out of the hospital's parking lot. Just before 10 p.m., Indiana State Police received reports from other drivers stating a Lexus was being driven erratically on westbound I-94.

Fuller previously said he thought it was most likely that Patrick hitched a ride along the interstate and left the area that night, based on the fact that a bloodhound tracked her scent from the car's location to the edge of the highway.

However, he said authorities are unaware what scent the dogs were "hitting" when they tracked Patrick to the edge of the highway.

It's amazing how someone can be so smart and gifted and yet so...gone. Was her family not aware of her mental condition? Was she really going to make it into a psychiatrist's office? Is there no screening for these things? Confused

I bet her PT are asking a lot of questions . The family hired a PI . She made a video talking to a man shortly before her death . Some people claim marvin sapp killed her or paid for a hit . I pray not . I understand she join his church and sent 400 letters , but he had to know she was ill . The police want to close the case . RIPBroken HeartCry
