KALAMAZOO, Mich. | Three weeks later, a young doctor in southwestern Michigan was still missing Friday night.
Teleka Patrick was last seen Dec. 5 trying to get a room at a Kalamazoo hotel. But she didn't stay there and eventually got a ride back to her car at Borgess Medical Center.
Patrick's gold Lexus was discovered that same night, 110 miles away in a ditch along Interstate 94 near Portage, Ind. There were no keys inside but police found her wallet.
Private investigator Carl Clatterbuck has been hired by Patrick's family. He says it's all a "big mystery."
The 30-year-old Patrick has been in Kalamazoo serving a medical residency since July. Clatterbuck says she had an airline ticket to visit her parents in Florida for Christmas.
