Doctor Who Disappeared Loaded Cryptic Videos Onto YouTube

In YouTube videos recorded by Taleka Patrick in November, she appears to be happy, content and in love.  She had recorded a video log of her day, smiling a beautiful smile and sharing the events of her day with someone she seems to care an awful lot about.  In her “Surprise! Final video”, also found on YouTube, she has even cooked breakfast for two, stating, “If you were here, this would be your plate”.

That final video is one of the last contacts Ms. Patrick has had with anyone in over a month.

The disappearance of 30-year-old Taleka Patrick has everyone who knows her concerned for her safety. Her sister, Tameka Patrick, in an interview with WOOD Channel 8 news, describes her sister as being “very methodical person who thinks things through…. committed to her work…completely unlike her not to show up” People magazine also carried the story of Patrick’s disappearance, including Patrick’s alleged stalking of Marvin Sapp, the celebrated gospel singer, and Sapp’s obtaining of a restraining order against her.  Taleka Patrick’s ex-husband also cited Patrick’s mental illness and paranoia as what led to their divorce in 2012.

Pamela Engel with Business Insider shares that, according to the Kalamazoo Gazette, Patrick disappeared on December 5, when she was last seen trying to get a room at a Radisson Hotel.  The Gazette also reported that her purse and cellphone were found at the hospital where she was a doctor in residency.

Tameka Parker shares the pain that the family has endured since Patrick’s absence, explaining there have been a lot of sleepless nights and crying due to this “out of character” behavior.  They, above all else, just want their loved one to return home.  The family has also created a social media campaign with Facebook and Twitter in an attempt to make sure as many people are aware of the disappearance as possible.  Her sister asks for assistance from those in cyberspace:

“We need all eyes looking for Taleka Patrick”

    This sounds like some sort of mental illness, most people don’t recognize themselves as having this illness, did no one at the hospital notice things going down hill, I pray for her safe return. I would hate for her to get lost in her own world and there is no one out there to help her. She appears to be highly intelligent and wish her the best upon her safe return.

    its hard to detect a problem from a video but it sure seems strange that
    she can entertain herself so completely, but hey that could be the proof!
    m at onet imy motherinlaw once told me as an RN for a mental institution that some mentally ill people were straight at one time, but usually some traumatic event happen upon their life that changed them completely. but usually once you move over to the other side theirs no coming back.

    I dealt with mentally ill patients in carrying them to see Psychiatrist, on Involuntary Commitment Orders, drawn up by the family, while working in Law Enforcement. A mentally ill person will get before a Psychiatrist, no manner how ill they are, they can reverse the role on you, and their family. As a former Law Enforcement Officer, the Psychiatrist after listening to the patients and their acting role. We are accuse of trying to put away a mentally stable person, no matter what there odd behaviors are, and mental histories are, most are cut lose to return to their family. The reason she can do her residency in Psychiatry work, is that most Psychiatrist has suffered some type of mental illness themselves. even If a mental ill person is commit into and Institution, because of budget cuts they want stay very long.The Doctors will tell you we don’t treat the mentally ill we just medicate them to keep them under control. Most people you see everyday suffers some form of mental illness.

    u all need to stop I agree with the woman that said that Sapp had a sexual relationship going on with this woman in California at some time or the other,, and that is one of the reason why she moved to Det. When he found out she were so near (she suprised him) it freaked him out completely because he knew what he had done, the promised he made her. that was the reason for the PPO. When I were in my (30′) my husband and I use to make video’s and cassette tapes to each others all the time,, this is not strange,, men and women do it all the time, Just look at Facebook and other sites. This man had something to do with her not being around.. she were tired of the secrect relationship,, and he wasn’t ready to come out,, I bet you there are many other young ladies he is messing with,, even before his wife died.. this man is a dog.

      I don’t know about the sexual relationship…does not sound true but it’s reported in police documentation that she was a member of his church and allegedly followed him home after service to find out where he lived. While he was traveling/ touring she went to the house and was let in by Sapp’s teenagers. This is when Sapp went and got a restraint order and had her barred from the church. I will admit the tone of Sapp’s Facebook post are s bite intimate and I have sent him a message advising he tone them down or else face stalking by some crazy. This is just so sad all around. Especially for Sapp’s kids.

    This is sad, but I am disturbed that no one had her under psychiatric care, especially since her husband divorced because of her delusions. In addition, it’s really scary that she was actually doing a residency – imagine a mentally ill doctor that isn’t under any treatment, treating your family members’ medical condition #SMH………..

    No sane grown woman is going to be preparing breakfast for two and recording a conversation posting it on FB unless there is something not quite right in their head.

    I don’t know if Sapp had a relationship with the woman or not, but i’m leaning towards the “I doubt it” side. She may have met him but again with mental illness, someone being cordial and pleasant can be misconstrued as a romantic interest.

    this is sad, but was the family in denial about her mental illness? if so shame on them. seems that they were because there was nothing said by them until the ex husband came out and exposed it. hell they may all have some type of mental illness – it is oftentimes genetic

      She is a doctor already,and you don’t know anything about her. you only know what you have heard. Hear this: Taleka is a child of God who has been trained by man.

    People don’t just disappear.
    People make people disappear.
    And everyone has been crazy in love at one time or another.
