Or....was she running from her family who had access to her cell phone and bank accounts?
As of last month her and the ex were still battling in court. The divorce was final but it seems there was spousal support issues.
As I've stated before, based on my friendships with and being around Seventh-Day Adventists, they appear to be morally conservative and very structured. While I think Teleka appears to be a very nice and accomplished person, her family has purposely not discussed other aspects of her personal life with the public. We only heard the good, but not the bad and the ugly. However, they were forced to open up behind the scenes.
Everyone close to and with knowledge of the case - Teleka's family members, the Kzoo Sheriff, the Indy State Police, and the FBI - says Teleka tried to get a room at the hotel. I just don't think all those people are lying or mistaken, and I can't think of any reason they would all get together and lie about it.
I think they're right - Teleka tried to get a room, but didn't have enough money.
Investigators found Patrick's purse and cellphone at the medical center
Dr. Patrick's belongings were in the car, to include clothing items, a wallet that contained her driver's license, credit cards, and a small amount of cash.
Police have obtained warrants to for Patrick's work and personal email accounts and report that there has been no activity on her bank accounts or credit cards.
Actually I'm reading further and spousal support was dropped. Ex was supposed to pay her so much per month towards joint credit cards that she paid off and he was ordered to pay her attorney fees via monthly payments. The last court action was 11/1/13.
Why should the family discuss anything with the general public? What does that have to do with people keeping an eye out for this missing doctor and alerting police if they spot her or have information on her disappearance? Why is the public entitled to her personal business?
No one is entitled to that.
The family doesn't need people creating rumors and speculating about what happened to Teneka--they need people to be aware of her missing, see and retain a memory of what she looks like, know where she was last seen, and be on the lookout for someone who matches her description.
Debate is healthy; the exchange of varying opinions, valuable. Let freedom ring!
Looks like the last court action was back on Aug 9th or 19th, and everything else after that looks like just the court recording document handling actions they took? Am I reading this right?

Well if she was trying to book a room for herself I wonder why? She did not appear to be upset that she didn't have enough money. Something was being discussed with a supervisor in that office I believe. What was it? Even if she was planning on going out for a night on the town her home was not far and surely she could have taken a cab if she planned on drinking. Did she live alone?
Prayers for her...and her family.
Thank you for saying that and I have thought that since the mysterious phone call she received. I read a lot on websleuths more than I comment and I wasn't sure if I could speculate that.
I don't know about everyone but most people do not want to be seen visibly upset at work. Doctors are generally good at keeping their composure. It had to have been something earth-shattering (at least to her) and it seems like she completely flipped the script of her life in 24 hours.
She didn't prepare well to disappear if that is her intention. I know how to disappear. I haven't spoken with my siblings since mother died (2000), nor do they know where I am. (Ugly situation, death threats insinuated.)
I guess we wait and see with TP. I hope she sorts it out or a bright light has been extinguished.

This new information about her alias is exactly what I was talking about in an earlier post. IMO, about every week or so new information is disclosed. LE has a job to do and they do it well, especially with all the technology at their disposal. So I'm not mad at 'em. Having said that, I also wondered why there is no mention about any connections in California. I live in Cali and from day one I thought Teleka's story should have been covered in here. After all she did live here for at least 4 years. IMO, this now sounds like a domestic issue; perhaps she either left with her ex willingly or unwillingly which would make it an abduction. Which may be the reason LE has repeatedly stated they do not suspect foul play in her disappearance.
I agree with the post stating her parents should make an appeal to Teleka. Praying she is okay.
I think Teleka was asking the hotel clerk for the name of a person who was supposed to be there. I think it was the person on the phone. She may have been very upset and heard the hotel name wrong and went to the wrong one. She may have been too distressed to drive herself and just left without thinking to take her belongings with her.
What happened after that? IDK. The car was staged or stranger abduction maybe.
And I think LE knows this.
If she left willingly would she have abandoned her car on the side of the highway with her wallet ID and cash? That makes no sense to me.
