GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Teleka Patrick, a 30-year-old doctor in residency at Western Michigan University, disappeared Dec. 5, 2013.
Surveillance footage showed her at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo where she tried to get a room but apparently didn’t have enough money.
Shortly thereafter, a hotel employee there then dropped her off at Borgess Medical Center where she worked. That was the last time she was seen.
Later that night, her car was found abandoned with a flat tire in Porter, Ind.
Police searched a nearby frozen pond but were not able to find any clues.
Since then, details of her personal life have surfaced, but none of which have resulted in substantial leads.
Her family said they are desperate for answers and sent 24 Hour News 8 a statement — “We have fished for clues on Twitter, spoken to hoards of friends and associates, hung up signs on cold metal posts, and every step of the way we’ve prayed like we’ve never prayed before.”
On Tuesday on “24 Hour News 8 Daybreak,” private investigator Jim Carlin talked with 24 Hour News 8’s Brett Thomas about the latest developments in the case. Watch the video above for the interview.
