KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Dr. Teleka Patrick, 30, has been missing since December 5th. YouTube videos of her (appearing to speak to a romantic interest) surfaced this week. The videos’ upload dates are November 8th and 10th. Her parents released the following statement late Thursday night:
Our hearts are saddened that Teleka was not with us yesterday for Christmas. We are aware of the YouTube videos that have surfaced today. However, their relevance to her disappearance remains a mystery. These videos have led to more questions than answers. To our knowledge, Teleka was not in a romantic relationship and it is unclear to whom she is making reference in the videos. We pray that Teleka is safe and remain hopeful that we will find her soon.
There is a $15,000 reward for any information about Teleka’s whereabouts. We are asking anyone who has further information pertaining to this case to contact the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department at 269-383-8748.
