She didn't go to her apt, she tried to appear she was still at work to throw off her stalkers, she wore all black to be more hidden, and she felt her life was more valuable then all of the work she had done to reach her current career position. She left her ID and credit cards, and even her family. She must have felt she was in great danger to leave her family and all of her life's efforts to run and hide somewhere. Even a person who is stressed would just take a vacation somewhere, but not totally disappear and ruin their credit and their credibility as a responsible person. She can't work as a Doctor in USA without the ID, social security card, and background history check. I don't see a person throwing all of that away for a relationship or a need for break from work.

    I think Teleka will be located not far from where her car went into the ditch. Unless she had warmer clothing in her car than what was seen in the hotel video - she wasn't dressed for the weather. I believe she succumbed to the elements. It was in the low 20's with winds of 16 to 17 mph that evening.

    I voted other because I think she suffered a psychotic breakdown and probably run away from her car and succumbed to the elements. I think she will be found relatively close to where her car was found. I hate to think like that, I just hope I am wrong and she is safe somewhere.

    It that is true, Why haven't they found her yet?

    I think she chose to disappear, and with a sig other, too bad we can't select two choices.

    No matter what, I pray that she is alive and well, and will let her family know...

    I voted deceased. I think she had a clandestine relationship that was in trouble. ie: the wife saw her husbands tweets and was onto him. Drs make big money, and we all know that Love and Money are the two most common motives for murder.

    After seeing the youtube videos, wether we know it or not, there are numerous online relationships going on. One of the biggest hints, is "flowers from last time". This says she met the person previously. Obviously, this love interest is not fabricated. Let's face it, when someone is in love, she could easily make 2 breakfast plates to maintain the fantasy. I do not think relationship was a mental fabrication. A lot transpired between the time the videos were posted and when she went missing. Latest evidence is leaning heavily towards, a stalker who may have followed her and picked her up. Short of that, giving the folk who believe she was mental, she could have finally lost her sense of identity, picked up by a stranger, and dropped off. If so, then whoever picked her up needs to report that. jus' my 2 cents. Also, someone mentioned did the hound dog pick up her scent or a mere driver. In that case, the car could have been driven there to throw off investigators.

    Arrow My vote is "Other"--

    I can see any number of the choices being possibly the answer as to what happened to Teleka, but there are a couple that IMO, for nothing other than my own personal feelings and opinions, are so not likely to have occurred..

    Upthread, IMO, Ms. Marple makes a very good point about there being extremely few, and IMO, even scarcely few issues that would have led to Teleka up and leaving EVERYTHING SHE HAD WORKED SO LONG AND SO HARD TO ACHIEVE, yet to just walk away and to never reap ANY OF THE REWARDS from that long, hard work..well, IMO, I too believe that this point drastically narrows down the choices in negating those that have Teleka of her own free will, and/or of a sane mind..

    My vote is very firmly "Other" as with what is known at this point and time, IMO, I cannot narrow it down any further than what I above described..jmo, tho.
    The quickest way to become a fool is to argue with one..

    Other: At this point I think Teleka was suffering from some type of mental illness and will be found near her car somewhere

    (I do reserve the option to change my opinion as more information comes out, but as of now this is the most logical conclusion for me)

    Legal problems

    What about a scenario where DrTeleka decides to renig on turning states' evidence?

    Maybe a friend was involved in something (embezzling, money laundering) and DrTeleka was an unwitting witness.

    Or someone falsified information for a research grant and DrTeleka had information that could be used in prosecution.

    Perhaps the person who was involved in the nefarious activity was a "significant other".

    DrTeleka would be avoiding the government surveillance, and reuniting with this person.

    My opinion.

    Question Clues

    Watching the video, I don't think she was talking with someone she had a real relationship with. She doesn't seem to be really comfortable with the person she addresses. On the first one she reminds the person of who she is - not a boyfriend. The whole deal of making him a plate when he isn't there - seems like they are carrying on a relationship 100% based online.

    She was a smart girl. If she planned to meet him for the first time, she may have left behind her car or ID so she could bale without him being able to easily track her down. Maybe she chickened out or he didn't show but they connected later. Or maybe she was involved in some sort of good-girl-gone-bad prostitution thing that went wrong.

    I definitely think that the man and her erratic behavior the night of her disappearance are the only two red flags in her life - common sense says that the two are more than likely related. Of course, that doesn't mean the man necessarily attacked her. She is 30, attractive, successful . . . and unmarried. Believe me, she was looking for a partner. Her work hours probably made it hard to carry on a normal social life. If the guy stood her up, she probably took it hard. Or, perhaps, he is married or is otherwise not who he represented himself as online; he may have started to pull away as the two got close and she took it badly.

    Working in such a stressful environment after the hell that is medical school may have taken a toll and the failed relationship pushed her over the edge. Maybe, as a result, she decided to disappear for a bit. But a suicide victim can't hide her own body. Plus, a doctor at a hospital could easily steal the drugs she needed to peacefully end her own life - women tend to go that route regardless of their easy access to narcotics. That may actually explain the report of erratic driving. But if she went that route, where is she? How did she get away from her car and end her life somewhere remote enough to evade discovery by the police? If she isn't laying low somewhere, trapped in the shadows by fear of the imminent public ridicule if she now comes forward after the publicity surrounding her case then this is a mystery that can only be solved by following a trail of usernames, passwords, and IP addresses.

    I agree with the above statement. I think what happened is related to a psychotic event and she died as a result. I hope I am wrong. I think her body will be found within a couple miles of where her vehicle turned up on I-94. May be similar to the Fred Byrne disappearance where there is no foul play. I pray for the family and hope she is found safe, but probably Occam's Razor here. The paranoia she was experiencing seems to be related to her vanishing...this seems to be a hallmark to many similar disappearances. JMHO, but let's pray I am a wrong as stated.
