The vigil was put on by the Pray at the Pump organization, which has gotten national attention in the past for gathering to pray for lower gas prices.
According to a Thursday release from leader Rocky Twyman, other members of the group and friends of Dr. Patrick were present at the vigil, but no specific attendance number was provided.
Patrick was last seen Dec. 5 at approximately 8 p.m. She unsuccessfully attempted to check into a hotel room in downtown Kalamazoo, then her car was located about two hours later in a ditch on I-94 near Porter, Ind.
Her wallet with a driver’s license, credit card and cash were in the car as well as several clothing items.
The FBI confirmed Dec. 20 that they were assisting in the case. The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department and Indiana State Police remain the primary agencies in the investigation.
Anyone with information on Teleka Patrick’s whereabouts should contact Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Office at 269-383-8821 or your local FBI office.
