Bloodhounds are now being used in the search for Teleka Patrick, but what will they find? It's been over a week since anyone has seen or heard from the woman, so negative elements are already being considered -- even by officials. This is the newest update since the missing woman's Lexus was found abandoned near Portage, Ind., and the lack of answers to the mounting questions is maddening.
It's becoming increasingly apparent that Teleka was the victim of foul play. This is something that even police have acknowledged:
"We're investigating a woman who has no reason to be missing."
Officials are dancing around whether they want to firmly state that "foul play" is a factor, but we are told to not be "hung up on the title of the case."-- Whatever that means.
Was Teleka Patrick kidnapped, murdered or what? With the use of bloodhounds, which are scent dogs, it's hopeful that some kind of evidence will be found -- especially around the area where her car was abandoned.
The family of the missing woman is also trying to raise funds online for the search -- hopefully for ground searches. #FindTeleka is still a trending hashtag on Twitter.
