33-year-old medical resident, Teleka Patrick was last seen on the evening of December 5th when she was dropped off at her car in the parking lot of the Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, MI. Her abandoned gold Lexus was later found in a ditch off westbound I-94 near Portage, Indiana.  #FindTeleka has been a trending topic for weeks on Twitter and authorities are still combing the case.

Authorities recently discovered video that was uploaded to YouTube that gives a little insight into Patrick’s life up until the time she vanished. The videos include Patrick talking, singing and flirting with an unknown person.  But what strikes the videos strange is the fact that Patrick’s parents were not aware of any romantic relationship their daughter was involved in.

“Hi, baby,” Patrick says in one. “I am just coming to you to say ‘hi’ and tell you about my day.”

In another video, Patrick shows a table set for two with omelets and pancakes.

“If you were here, this is what would be your plate,” she says.

Those two videos were uploaded in early November, and authorities are trying to figure out why and how they’re surfacing now.

A third video from a surveillance camera  shows Patrick at a hotel in Kalamazoo, where she went on the night of  December 5, hours before police found her car in a ditch. At 7:30 p.m. Patrick showed up to the Radisson, and spent about 10 minutes talking to the front desk staff, and then left.  The video doesn’t include any audio, and it’s unknown why Patrick didn’t book a room. At 7:48 p.m., Patrick left the hotel lobby and got on a  hotel shuttle bus.

Patrick’s family has hired a private investigator who is looking into the videos.  The family would like to figure out who their daughter is talking to in the videos and if they have any information about Teleka’s disappearance.

Anyone with information regarding her disappearance is requested to call the Kalamazoo Sheriff’s Department at (269) 383-8821 (Option 6)

  • I hope they find her soon, hopefully alive. It’s a lot of miniorities that go missing and they never get any National attention on their cases. Maybe she didn’t want her parents to know she was seeing anyone. I have talked to or dated guys that my parents have never met or know anything about.

      That’s dangerous! I was always taught to let someone know about the man you’re seeing because one never knows what someone is capable of.

      Its not smart because now no one has a clue who she was seeing….. I’ve been married for some time and my daughter has a steady boyfriend (she met in high school) of 3 yrs but I’ve always told her get driver license number something to prove who you’re going out on a date with. You have to be smart….it could mean the difference of life and death or at least someone being held accountable.

      If this young women was murdered the murderer could get away with it and kill again! We have to be smarter women especially when dating strangers! I hope and pray they find her alive but each day that goes by I’m feeling less confident that they will.

      A woman being ‘smart’ doesn’t mean she can’t still be kidnapped and/or murdered.

      This is another issue of trying to stop the symptoms and not the cause.

  • I understand it may not be the smartest or safest thing but my parents (mother) can be a little bit nosey and unforgiven when it comes to your dating life so I decided it best to tell a little if not anything at all to keep her out of my business especially if I see the relationship not going pass a few dates. Maybe Teleka didn’t want her parents to know she was seeing someone for a reason, I hope it didn’t cause her disappearance.

    • i hope she at least told a friend! it sounds like she was excited about this person. and that’s hard to keep to yourself. i really hope someone comes forward soon and that this beautiful sista is found safe.

      Yeah, my family may not know about a new beau, but at least one of my friends will. If I was to come up missing my parents would not be finding out from a YouTube video, but from my friends. They are smart enough to know that most people are harmed by those closest to them.

    Online dating.

  • I don’t feel like they’re really trying to find her. All they had to do is track the IP address from the user who posted the video of her. SMH. Their lack of regard when it’s a missing black woman frustrates me.
