KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — Wednesday marks three months since a 30-year-old doctor in residency at Western Michigan University went missing.

Teleka Patrick was last seen on Dec. 5 after entering the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo.

While she didn’t outright ask to rent a room, she acted as though she wanted to, Fuller said. A hotel employee brought her back to the Borgess Hospital parking lot in a service van, where her car was presumably parked.

In late January, Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller released new information in Teleka’s disappearance. He described instances of her unusual behavior and set the record straight about her connection to well-known gospel singer Marvin Sapp.

On Tuesday, Teleka’s sister Tenesha posted a message on the ‘Find Teleka’ Facebook page saying: “Tomorrow marks 3 months. Three months of sadness, loss, tears, questions, prayers, hope, despair, ambivalence, fear, disappointment, pain, faith, and longing. Teleka is still missing and we still have no answers.

Tomorrow I will be wearing red, Teleka’s favorite color. It represents the vibrancy she exudes. Tomorrow I will be praying for a breakthrough- she’d be doing the same if the situation was switched. Teleka is known as the prayed for child (*Patrick family insider). I invite you to rock your red and join us in praying for our child/sister. Share favorite memories and experiences. Remember the gift that Teleka is. We know she will come home again.”

Last week, private investigator Jim Carlin talked with 24 Hour News 8′s Brett Thomas about the latest developments in the case.
