Family sends update on latest in missing woman investigation
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The family of a missing Kalamazoo doctor has offered an update to where things stand now in the hunt for the woman.
Family and friends say that police have seized the computers of 30-year-old Teleka Patrick, and are reviewing the computers' contents.
Patrick went missing December 5, after being last seen in the parking lot of Borgess Medical Center where she worked as a psychiatry resident. All of her belongings, minus her wallet and keys, were left at the hospital.
Police have also obtained warrants for both Patrick's work and personal email accounts in their search for clues.
They are also keeping an eye on her bank account and credit card activity. There has been no movement in either.
The family also reports that the car she was driving had a flat tire when it was found, and K-9 units followed her scent directly to the road.
Family says this leads them to believe that she was either being followed or was picked up by someone she did not know.
They also add that Patrick reportedly received a disturbing phone call the day before her disappearance, which left her visibly upset, and that police are currently obtaining a warrant to access phone records to learn more about it.
Most interestingly, family notes that there was an unconfirmed sighting of Patrick, asking people for directions to Gary, Indiana.
At this time, police and family say this is all that they know, and the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office released a statement Friday saying that they would no longer make any comments or field any further inquiries on the status of the investigation.
If you have any information as to Teleka Patrick's whereabouts, you are urged to call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office or Silent Observer right away.
