    I-94 doesn't go through Gary but skirts the bottom of the city. 90 is the primary road into Gary and Chicago.

    Okay, first off, Merry Christmas all, I wish these stories always had happier endings.. Or weren't so mysterious.

    As I stated yesterday, I drove down the stretch of I94 and came up with a few possible scenarios/theories. Please know that these are all my own opinions based on information we have or information we assume in each scenario.

    First thing first, I started on exit 60 in Michigan (Paw Paw) and traveled to exit 16 in Indiana, just a few miles past where her car was found. It took me exactly 2 hours. I was doing 60-65MPH the majority of my travel, I did not stop anywhere. Now knowing where Teleka last was, Borgess, Kalamazoo, she likely entered I94 on exit 76-78 - making it very probable that it could have taken that long..

    Also, I find it VERY hard to believe that someone didn't see SOMETHING - Not once on my drive from 11pm-1am and 1am-3am was I ever not able to spot another motorist.. Someone saw something, period. It is right in the area that starts getting congested. Also, well lit with a very large factory of some sort on the same side of the road right after she went off.

    Regarding driving erratically, that section of 94 is quite bumpy, if someone had bad suspension, they may be trying hard to control the car from all the bumps, just a thought. I have good suspension and I had to keep fixing the wheel to drive straight.

    There are signs on how far to Gary, everywhere. Including about 10 minutes before she went off. Regarding the hotel, if she did in fact go to Comfort Inn and ask directions, and then took of the wrong way, she may have then turned around, been frustrated, drove erratically and went off.

    The ditch is not deep. She could have gone off at a decent MPH and not had much damage to her car.. I almost feel weird calling it a ditch, because its not really.

    Regarding rest stops, there is one just entering Indiana, and there is a visitor center a few miles before she went off The road. Lets say she went to Comfort Inn, got direction, went the wrong way, pulled off at the visitor center, someone abducted her (I know someone said the PI said someone thought they saw her waving her arms getting into a vehicle) perhaps there were 2 people, one that abducted her, and one drove the car down the road a few miles to ditch it and make it look like an accident, that makes her disappearing from going off The road so fast a possibility in that scenario.

    Some scenario similar to this has crossed my mind too. Perhaps there were 2 people that abducted her and one was driving her car? That could explain the fast getaway. It wouldn't explain dogs following her scent from the car to the highway but I'm not overly sold on that anyways. It's possible 2 people abducted her way prior to the car found location or even back at Borgess and perhaps they pulled over at the visitor center or some rest area where she was spotted waving her hands in the car? The only thing that confused me about that was the witness said he saw her get in the car then wave her hands.

    I'm trying to fit a timeline into the Comfort Inn sighting and the rest stop sighting if those were indeed her. What if she was carjacked somewhere near the Comfort Inn by 2 people. One person jumped in her car and the other one followed. I wish we knew what rest stop the possible sighting was but if it was the truck stop on hwy 20 just down the road from the Comfort Inn could they have then taken back roads then jumped back on I-94 headed west when the car went off the road? The driver grabs her and they quickly jump into accomplice #2's car and take off?

    This is what I am think about her waiving her arms...if she were waiving her arms in the midst of someone grabbing her...I am sure this would have been mentioned, as it would have been a witnessed abduction.

    I'm still of the mind that Taleka is possibly with a person she is choosing to be with OR she may in fact have suffered some psychological distress and is in shelters, etc.

    I'd like to hear what her co-workers have to say about her behavior at least a week leading up to her disappearance...and why does the detective call her behavior agitated?

    I agree that someone probably saw something, or even picked her up and dropped her off somewhere, but unless this story were to receive a national bombardment of media coverage, it is unlikely that this person would come forward. Chances are if she were scooped up at that time of night it would've been by an out-of-state traveler/truck driver, and unless they are made aware of the situation they would just be thinking they helped out a random traveler after an incident (i.e. took her to the next exit/loaned her a phone to call someone/etc.). Of course, there is also the possibility that she hitched a ride from a bad person, but right now I'm not seeing that.

    Which reminds me - if she was picked up by a random friendly, and if she wasn't on the run/was of sound mind, then she would've almost certainly used the samaritan's phone to call LE/AAA/her family/a coworker/etc. (or she would've gotten a ride to a nearby phone and done the same) If she was on the run, then she still may have used said phone, but instead called the person or persons she was going to hide out with to come pick her up. That person or persons may have been the individual(s) alluded to by the PI, or it may have been someone different altogether.

    Perhaps she got in a car thinking she would get help, upon entering discovered she was in danger? I don't know, I am just trying to come up with anything.

    I truly do not rely on the dog scent. It was 6-7 days AFTER she was reported missing, and who knows if it was HER scent, or someone who drove the car..

    Also, the car was reported BEFORE she was actually reported missing. I have left a vehicle on the side of the road before, and I guarantee that nobody searched me out. They towed it and sent me a letter. The cops responded to an unknown accident to find an abandoned car.. Did they REALLY do anything looking into any foul play? They constantly said in the beginning they suspected no foul play. I wonder what evidence has already been compromised, I feel probably a good amount. Generally, your car gets a sticker and you have 48 hours to move it. They won't search the vehicle and finger print and look around the general location. A killer could have had her bound and silenced hiding in the trees, the cops probably wouldn't have even noticed. A car on the side of 94 is not a suspicious enough event to raise any alarms to local LE, even with a call of erratic driver and unknown accident.. They could have assumed it was some drunk.. They didn't even know she was missing until the next morning and it took days for ISP and KPS to connect heads and links.. Just a thought..

    I just can't imagine her hitching a ride that quickly. Like I had previously stated, being a female, if I went off of 94 at night, I would have flashers and lights on and probably not even attempt to get someone to pull over for fear of my safety.. She was gone FAST.

    The only reason that makes me believe that she could've hitched a ride that quickly is that at least one person saw her driving erratically and subsequently leave the road (this person called 911). Lots of other folks could have seen the incident as it unfolded too, and one of them could've stopped and offered her a ride almost immediately. If this person doesn't know she is now missing, there is no reason he/she would think to call LE.

    She could've also left on foot as soon as it happened and gotten out of sight within the 6 or so minutes it took an officer to arrive.

    I've said it once and I'll keep saying it - this case is one of the oddest disappearances I've seen. So many variables, yet we don't even know if any of them are related.

    Do we know for sure it was the same person that called and reported erratic driving AND the accident?

    Also, just another theory, what if the possible kidnapper is the one who called to try to throw the cops off any trail.

    Like I said, I don't know. Some of my thoughts are probably slightly absurd, but this case has grabbed me and won't let me go. I got sick to my stomach driving passed there last night. Even more nervous as I stopped at the truck stop. Too close to home for me.

    I haven't put much into this only because I feel like MOST people who would see a woman in a car or getting in a car and waving their arms would call the police just to even be cautious. IF for some random reason i saw this and decided calling authorities wasn't necessary I would at the least write down any info on that vehicle in case I heard something in the news later.

    It has been reported that LE said it was the same person. Not sure if LE said this in a press conference or it was relayed to an individual reporter for his/her story.

    It is possible that this individual tried to throw off cops, but it isn't likely in that LE probably already investigated this and ruled it out.

    Although I agree that they may have investigated it.. Lets also remember that at the time of this calls there was nothing other than just an "erratic" motorist.

    It also is possible to call and be anonymous. Seems to me, this person who was so concerned to report erratic driving and the car in the ditch would have seen it or her and stopped when it happened at the very least to ensure everyone was okay.. This caller has me suspicious. The whole story does. I really have no idea what happened. I was hoping my familiarity with the area would draw in some possibilities, and it did, but I am more confused than before.
