KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Relatives of a doctor who vanished from Kalamazoo--and whose abandoned car was found in Duneland in December, on the same day she went missing--are asking the public to wear red on the three-month anniversary of her disappearance.

Teleka Patrick hasn't been seen since Dec. 5. Her gold 1997 Lexus ES300 was found more than 100 miles away, abandoned in a ditch in the westbound lanes of I-94, just east of the Porter/Burns Harbor exits, adjacent to Lake Charles.

The Kalamazoo Gazette is reporting that a sister, Tenesha Patrick, is urging people to wear red Wednesday and pray for a breakthrough in the case.

On Jan. 23 a search of Lake Charles was conducted by the Indiana State Police, the FBI, and the Kalamazoo County and Washtenaw County, Mich., sheriff’s departments. Sonar equipment was used but nothing of evidentiary value was found.

The 30-year-old Patrick was last seen trying to get a room at a Kalamazoo hotel. She didn't stay there and got a ride back to her car at Borgess Medical Center. Patrick had been in Michigan since last summer when she started a medical residency at Borgess.
