The family of Teleka Patrick intensifies their search for the 30-year-old as Christmas grows closer.
According to police reports, Patrick tried to check in at the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites in downtown Kalamazoo, but eventually got a ride from a hotel courtesy van driver after she wasn’t able to get a room.
Her car, a Lexus ES300, was found over 100 miles away from the hotel in a ditch off I-94 in Portage, Indiana.
Patrick’s cell phone and purse were found at the medical center, not in her car, causing confusion for family and authorities.
The missing doctor’s family has raised over $22,500 on the crowd funding site Go Fund Me that will be used to hire a private investigator and pay for costs related to Teleka’s safe return.
If you have any information about Patrick’s whereabouts, please contact the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department at 269-383-8748 or report a tip to the Black and Missing Foundation.
