A Michigan doctor who went missing in early December had been accused of stalking well-known gospel singer and pastor Marvin Sapp.
Patrick, who has been missing since December 5th of last year, was obsessed with Sapp. She reportedly joined his church, insisted she was married to him, showed up at his home and even harassed his children.
It is also indicated that Dr Patrick, who started her residency at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan last year, moved to the area from California because of Pastor Sapp.
The night before she went missing investigators say Patrick asked her coworkers to drop her off at a Radisson Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo.
Patrick then attempted to book a room at the hotel but lacked enough money to do so. Surveillance footage from the hotel shows her walking into the hotel and speaking with an employee at the front desk before eventually leaving.
Her car, a Lexus ES300, was found over 100 miles away from the hotel in a ditch off I-94 in Portage, Indiana. Dr Patrick’s parents, who live in Florida, said she has a busy schedule but usually calls them once a week, usually on Sundays.
They did not believe that their daughter was in a romantic relationship. Her family has now asked the investigator handling another famous missing persons case, Mary Land, who disappeared ten years ago, to help find her.
Dr Patrick’s parents met with Jim Carlin of Justinian Investigative Services in Battle Creek and the agency will now work on her case.
