“Maybe the voices she heard wasn’t God. Maybe the voices she heard pointed to a serious condition,” said her ex, Ismael Calderon.
He also explained to Target 8 how Teleka, 30, is deeply religious, however, showed signs of what he believed to be severe mental illness, reports WOODTV.
Calderon said the couple met online and noted Teleka is intelligent, beautiful, and "true-hearted" when it came to her faith.
He also told Target 8 that Teleka started to become delusional, paranoid, and began to hear voices.
Calderon told the local news media outlet that the two went to marriage counseling, but their union fell apart when he pressured her to get some type of mental health treatment.
He believes she likely left the Kalamazoo area and headed toward Indiana because she thought someone was after her.
Nevertheless, Calderon said he does not think Teleka is hiding somewhere, but instead is "...being held against her will... or even worse," noting, "...it's horrible to think something bad may have happened to her."
He said he is speaking out in the hopes the information he has to offer regarding Teleka will help investigators find her.
Teleka, 30, failed to show up for work on Dec. 6, 2013.
The night prior, police found her car abandoned in an Indiana ditch alongside an interstate about 100 miles away from Kalamazoo where she worked. Reports indicate her wallet was still inside the vehicle.
Teleka’s cell phone was left at her place of employment, Borgess Hospital.
According to CNN, Dec. 5 surveillance video from a local Radisson hotel shows Teleka at the front desk just after 7:30 p.m. She is dressed in all black and spends about 10 minutes speaking with the reception desk. Teleka then leaves after failing to book a room.
She can be seen exiting out the hotel’s front doors at about 7:48 p.m. and getting on a shuttle bus, which took her to her car, CNN reports.
Two recently discovered YouTube videos uploaded in November show Teleka “cooing and singing to someone unnamed and apparently unknown.” One of them also shows a table “set for two with omelets and pancakes,” according to CNN. Her family reportedly was not aware she was romantically involved with anyone at present.
