The parents of Teleka Patrick reached out to the media with a heartbreaking letter seeking help from the public, and in the letter they revealed that they are fearing the worst in the missing woman's case. In the letter they wrote they express the worry that she may not be alive, that something might have happened to her.
Teleka Patrick was allegedly dropped off at Bronson Medical Hospital, which is where she vanished. She never showed up to work, and her car was later found abandoned in Portage, Ind., -- around two hours from where she was last seen. Her belongings were left in the car, but her purse was missing. Officials won't clarify whether or not her keys were in the car. Bloodhounds have been used, finally, in the search for her -- but there have been no updates indicating any clues being found.
With it being seven days since she was last seen, it's hard to believe that she is voluntarily missing. It's also statistically unlikely that she'd be kept alive somewhere if she was abducted. So what are the other theories available? Hopefully this case ends positively, but it's beginning to look like she won't be found alive.
