Teleka Patrick's family hires new investigator

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The parents of missing Kalamazoo doctor Teleka Patrick have fired the services of the Kalamazoo private investigator and hired services out of Battle Creek.

Justinian Investigative Services announced late Thursday they have been hired to take over Patrick's case.

Teleka Patrick disappeared on December 5, 2013.

The Battle Creek-based business is the same firm hired to find Mary Denise Lands who went missing from Marshall in 2004.

This information comes just hours after Newschannel 3 learned Patrick had a personal protection order out against her by a famous West Michigan Gospel Singer and Grand Rapids Native Marvin Sapp.

Sapp is also the pastor at the Lighthouse FLC Church in Grand Rapids.

Patrick's family tells us they have been advised by the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department that the release of this information could have a negative impact on the investigation into her disappearance.

And Justinian Investigator Jim Carlin tells us too many people have given interviews that included misinformation in the case.

There is a $15,000 reward for information leading to Teleka Patrick's whereabouts.
