WMU med student is still missing

The disappearance of a Western Michigan University medical student continues to baffle police. Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller says they have no idea where Dr. Teleka Patrick is at this time. Fuller said it appears the 30-year-old resident at Borgess Medical Center left Kalamazoo willingly on December 5th and was headed to a relative’s home in Chicago. He added that there was no sign of any struggle in Patrick’s car when it was found along I-94 in Portage, Indiana. Fuller said they have no credible tips at this point, and he’s frustrated by most of the social media chatter being more focused on Dr. Patrick’s behavior than on where she could be. He says Patrick had disappeared in the past, but never for more than a day or two. Fuller noted that Grand Rapids Pastor Marvin Sapp is not a suspect in her disappearance and is an innocent stalking victim. He had taken out a personal protection order against Patrick. Fuller says investigators refuse to speculate whether Patrick is alive or dead until they get more information. Multiple searches have failed to turn up any sign of Patrick.  (MRN)
