The family of a medical resident now missing for two weeks holds out hope that police will find her in time for Christmas.

Dr. Teleka Patrick, 30, a first-year medical resident at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo, Mich., received a suspicious call the day before she vanished, her loved ones told ABC News. Family members said Patrick’s demeanor changed after she received the call, but they didn’t know who it was from.

Patrick was last seen Dec. 5 around 8 p.m. on surveillance footage as she returned from an evening out and tried to get a room at a Kalamazoo Radisson hotel. Her parents, who say they do not know why she was at the hotel, said she was turned away because she didn’t have enough money for the room.

Patrick took a hotel shuttle to her car, a gold Lexus, which was found two hours and 20 minutes later in a ditch more than 100 miles away in Portage, Ind. Patrick was reported missing when she didn’t show up for work the next day.
