Teleka Patrick not the first to vanish from Borgess Hospital

There are new updates in the Teleka Patrick case, but the woman is still missing. There are also some disturbing details to share that could be a horrifying connection to Teleka's disappearance -- or merely nothing more than a bizarre coincedence. This missing woman was spotted at least once the night she went missing, so there are new disturbing elements at play, but most disturbing of all: Teleka is not the first woman to vanish from Borgess Hospital.

For starters, the latest reports share that Teleka tried to check into a hotel room before she vanished nearly two weeks ago. She was unable to, apparently, but reportedly "hitched a ride" with a hotel courtesy van driver after she couldn't get a room. This is one helluva strange update, that throws a whole new element in the case. This woman could be voluntarily missing -- perhaps under the stress of leaving med school and entering her residency. This is totally probable, and very shocking.

However, it's hard to know how officials could confirm this, and if it's true it's hopeful that this van driver is being tracked down and interrogated in case he may know something about her disappearance. There's also the strange coincedence that she is not the first young woman to vanish from Borgess Hospital. Back in 2003 a woman named Shay Lynn Eisenhardt vanished after checking into the hospital for anxiety. In a strange coincedence the security cameras at Borgess that night apparently weren't working either -- according to a friend of Shay's. Her remains were located scattered through the woods in Kalamazoo in 2003. Her death remains unsolved. So is it a coincedence or not? Could something terrible have happened to both of these women? It should be noted that Shay wanted to be a nurse.

I hope that Teleka Patrick is somewhere alive, watching the news and fully aware that people are searching for her. However, if this is the case then she needs to face charges for continuing the charade. Adults are allowed to go voluntarily missing, but when they allow the public to believe they are in danger without even letting the police know she is safe is just irresponsible. On the other hand, I do believe that this woman may have suffered some kind of accident or fell victim to foul play.
