He did say he believes “she is alive” and posited Teleka may have “checked herself into a hospital” if she “realized that she needed some help.”

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.

Police urge anyone with information about Teleka's whereabouts call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office at 269-383-8748, or contact Silent Observer at 269-343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
