Videos raise new questions for those trying to find Teleka Patrick

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New online videos of a missing Kalamazoo doctor posted before she disappeared are raising more questions for investigators on the case.

Patrick has now been missing since the fifth, when she was last seen leaving work at Borgess. 

Her car was found abandoned in Porter County, Indiana.

The videos, now on YouTube, show Dr. Teleka Patrick talking to someone she calls her love, and repeatedly says I love you.

"Hi love, it's me, so I finally got done, so I just wanted to show you what I made," Teleka says in one of the videos.

But family members and friends say they don't think she was in a romantic relationship.

"From everyone I've talked to, I have no clue who that video was directed to, I would love to know that. It would give a certain level of satisfaction if I know who that video was directed to. I would like to talk to that person if I knew who," says Private Investigator Carl Clatterbuck. 

Clatterbuck is working for the Patrick family and says he has formed a working theory in the case.  He believes for some reason Teleka felt threatened in Kalamazoo.

It's clear she was agitated, clear that she was taking some kind of an action to be away from her house...and then I make assumptions based on that."

He says that may be why she tried to stay at the Radisson Hotel the night she disappeared. Also, the hotel shuttle driver who took her back to her car says she was ducking behind cars trying to stay out of sight.

And she left her phone at work, Clatterbuck says that also could have been to keep someone from finding her.

"I think there was some plan going on, that got interrupted when she couldn't stay at the Radisson," says Clatterbuck.

He hopes maybe by seeing the new videos someone may remember seeing Teleka in the last three weeks.

The reward for information in the case is now up to $15,000.
