Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Michigan gospel singer and pastor Marvin Sapp filed a personal protection order against a doctor who has been missing since Dec. 5.

Teleka Patrick, 30, a first-year psychiatry resident in Kalamazoo, Mich., was last seen in surveillance footage at a hotel about 5 minutes from her home. She was trying to pay cash for a room, but a hotel employee turned her away. The employee said she became agitated.

Two hours later, her car was found in a ditch with a flat tire nearly 100 miles away in Indiana. Patrick's wallet was still in the vehicle, but she and her keys were missing.

The Grammy-nominated Sapp filed a request for a personal protection order against Patrick in September, saying the woman was making claims that he was her husband, WWJ-TV, Detroit, reported. Sapp alleged Patrick moved from California to Michigan so she could join his church, and once showed up at his home and contacted his children.

Sapp said he has more than 400 pages of correspondence from Patrick.

Patrick's ex-husband, Ismael Calderon, said he had concerns about her mental health.

“She went to Michigan on purpose and I don’t believe it had anything to do with, ‘Oh, Michigan has a really great psychiatric residency program,’ ” he said. ”What I heard is that there was somebody that she maybe felt that God wanted her to be with.”

Calderon said Patrick's seeming mental instability led to the break up of their 5-year marriage.
