It has been exactly a month since Dr. Teleka Patrick went missing in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The 30 year-old was last seen being dropped off in the parking lot at her job and hasn’t been heard from since. Her car was found miles away in another state with no signs of her and according to police, no signs of foul play.
Updates seem to be happening rather quick in this strange disappearance and for the past couple of days some bizarre and breaking news updates have been coming up concerning this case, including the court documents alleging that she was stalking popular gospel singer Marvin Sapp. The stalking was so bad that he filed a ‘PPO: Personal Protection Order’ against her in September of 2013.
In the report, Sapp writes that she claimed him as her husband, had moved from California to Michigan, joined his church, had contacted his children and had been to his home. He also said has has over 400 pages of letters from her to which he has never responded.
In light of these new reports on her mental health, her family released a statement:
Since Dec 5th, our family has been focused exclusively on finding Teleka. She wasn’t with us on Christmas, and as we enter 2014 she still isn’t with us.
We are aware of media reports that are beginning to focus on Teleka’s mental health, and while we encourage the pursuit of honest journalism and truth, we will not take part in sensationalizing Teleka’s disappearance.
The fact remains that Teleka disappeared on Dec 5th. The fact remains that Teleka’s car was found with a flat tire on the side of I-94, a notoriously dangerous highway. And, the fact remains that NO ONE, not a friend, family member, co-worker or loved one has been in contact with Teleka since Dec 5th.
We believe that she has met with foul play and wholeheartedly believe that she is in danger. We are begging anyone with any information about her disappearance to contact the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s dept (269-383-8748) or the FBI.
Her ex husband, Ismael “Smiley” Calderon also gave a new interview on Saturday (Jan. 4) and still stands by his statements about her mental health and how he tried to help her.
This case keeps getting more bizarre and bizarre and God only knows how it’s going to end.
