According to MLive, she was last seen on Dec. 5 in downtown Kalamazoo where she was dropped off at her vehicle "that was believed to have been parked in the Borgess Medical Center parking lot." Her vehicle, a gold 1997 Lexus ES300 was later found abandoned in a ditch on westbound I-94 near Portage, IN.

Dr. Patrick, an alumnae of Oakwood University, graduated earlier this year from the Loma Linda University School of Medicine in CA and is currently a first year medical resident in Psychiatry at Western Michigan University's School of Medicine.

News about Dr. Patrick's disappearance has led to an outpouring of prayers and financial support towards the family through Facebook and Twitter. More than $7,000 has been raised for the #findteleka fund which was established through gofundme to "offset travel, flyers, and any other costs that will be incurred" during the search for Dr. Patrick.

Her family has asked for prayers and any information that could help police locate their missing relative. She is the daughter of Pastor Mattahais and Mrs. Irene Patrick, the former pastor and English Ministries director in the Greater New York Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Her brother, Matthias, is a keyboardist and organist for the Brooklyn Faith Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Dr. Patrick is described as an African-American woman, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 160 lbs., with dark brown eyes and black hair.

Anyone with information on Dr. Patrick's whereabouts should contact the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office at (269) 383-8748 or the Indiana State Police at (219) 696-6242.
