BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (Feb 5, 2014) –Walmart employees in Battle Creek reported a possible sighting of Teleka Patrick, according to private investigator Jim Carlin. He said the tip came in on Sunday.

The 30-year-old doctor from Kalamazoo was last seen on December 5th, leaving the Borgess Medical Center parking lot.

Detective William Sparrow with the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office said he’s “checking on it, and [will] see where it leads.”

According to Carlin, the Patrick family’s private investigator, an employee spotted a woman near the jewelry counter that resembled the missing woman on Saturday. Carlin said a second employee also thought the woman looked like Patrick. However, the woman’s coat had a different color lining than the one Patrick wore the night she disappeared.

Sparrow told FOX 17 the office is checking “anything we can,” including surveillance video from the store. He said just a few tips have come in since the January 22nd press conference regarding Patrick.
