KALAMAZOO, Mich.- It has been 13 days since Dr. Teleka Patrick was last seen.

Now, there’s a $10,000 reward and her family is hiring a private investigator in hopes of bringing her home for the holidays.

The case now spans two states after Patrick disappeared from Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo on Dec. 5.

Her car was found abandoned in Portage, Ind. shortly afterwards.

Wednesday, Mattahias and Irene Patrick, Teleka’s parents, appeared on Nancy Grace pleading for their daughters return.

They say this is completely out of character for her, saying she’s always on time.

The Patricks have questions about the night before Teleka went missing.  There are reports she tried getting a hotel room at the Radisson hotel in Kalamazoo, just a few miles from her apartment.

Mattahias and Irene say they talk with their daughter every Sunday. Her sister tells us her cell phone was left at Borgess Hospital, where she was doing her residency.

Anyone with information on the disappearance of Teleka Patrick is asked to call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department at 269-383-8748 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
