KALAMAZOO, Mich — Did Teleka Patrick disappear voluntarily?
Teleka Patrick has been missing since Dec. 5 and investigators revealed at a news conference on Wednesday that they still do not have any substantial leads as to her whereabouts.
The missing doctor appears to suffer from mental health issues.
Her ex-husband has gone on record to say that their divorce was due to Patrick’s refusal to obtain professional help.
Patrick’s family had initially claimed they were unaware of any mental health issues, however, they have backtracked on their statement after numerous YouTube videos that Patrick filmed of herself were made public.
In the video, Patrick can be seen cooing and talking to someone. She even cooks for this person, although it is apparent the person is not there.
The target of her obsession appears to be Marvin Sapp, a well-known Pastor in Michigan and it has become apparent that her obsession with Sapp led her to move to Michigan.
Patrick, who has been described as “brilliant” had the opportunity, according to her family, to complete her medical residency elsewhere.
According to the thousands of tweets she made under numerous handles, at least two of her siblings were aware of the real reason that she chose to relocate to Michigan, and, it would also appear that they had some inking that something was not right with their sister.
She made her siblings promise not to tell their parents their real reason that she chose to move to Kalamazoo and said she would reveal the real reason by the end of 2013.
Her obsession, and likely stalking of Sapp, led him to take out a protective order on her in Sept. 2013. She was also sent a letter informing her that she no longer welcome at the Church that Sapp is affiliated with.
On the night she was last seen, Patrick tried to book a room at a downtown hotel. She left her cell phone at Borgess Medical Center and obtained a ride from a coworker, even though her car was parked in the parking garage of the hospital.
She also told coworkers that her car was in the repair shop and that she was driving a rental car, however, her car was already out of the repair shop when she made that statement.
She borrowed money from the coworker for the hotel room but allegedly did not have enough money and the hotel shuttle worked gave her a ride back to the hospital purportedly so she could obtain more money but then said that she would not be staying there.
Then, a few hours later her car was found with a flat tire in a ditch in Indiana, nearly 100 miles away from where she was last seen with her wallet reportedly still in the car.
A car matching the description of her car was reported to have been driving erratically in the vicinity where her car was last seen.
Patrick’s family is concerned that she may have met with foul play.
Did the missing doctor suffer some type of mental breakdown, take off driving, get stuck on the road and then meet with foul play?
Is it possible that Teleka Patrick disappeared of her own accord?
Could the brilliant doctor have engineered her entire disappearance because she has some type of ulterior motive?
She has disappeared before and also told school officials that she had a fiance. She also deleted her latest twitter handles before her disappearance.
Is Marvin Sapp in danger, or could he somehow be involved in her disappearance?
Sapp, has not been named a person of interest by authorities and claims that he has not answered any of the hundreds of emails he has received from Patrick indicating that had not been involved with her, although she referred to him as her future husband.
What about her ex-husband? Could he be involved in her disappearance because he was upset that their marriage broke down and she wanted to be with Sapp?
There are still many unanswered questions in the mysterious disappearance of the Teleka Patrick.
