In granting a request for a personal-protection order, a judge found clear evidence that a well-known West Michigan pastor and gospel singer was being stalked by Dr. Teleka Patrick, court documents show.

Marvin Sapp, a Grammy-nominated singer who heads Lighthouse Full Life Center Church in Grand Rapids, filed a petition for the protection order in September saying Patrick had been contacting him for “at least a year” and made claims that he was her husband.

Sapp also said in the affidavit that Patrick, after moving from California to Michigan, joined his church, contacted his children and came to his home.

“I’m a national recording artist on the RCA label who she has claimed as her husband,” Sapp said in a hand-written, two-page affidavit that accompanied his personal-protection order request.

“... I have at least 400 pages of correspondence from her which I have never responded to. (It) has gone on for at least a year ... I travel and I need to insure that when I’m home or away my teenage children are covered.”

Kent County Circuit Court Judge Daniel V. Zemaitis granted Sapp’s request Sept. 17, checking a box on the personal protection order that said the petition and affidavit “clearly establish that the petitioner is being stalked ...”

The order, which is effective until March 18, prohibits Patrick from following, approaching or confronting Sapp in a public place or on private property. It also prohibits her from contacting him by mail, email or the Internet, and from entering Sapp’s property, among other things.
Patrick, a first-year medical resident with the Western Michigan University School of Medicine who was working at Borgess Medical Center, has not been seen since Dec. 5. The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office, Indiana State Police and the FBI are investigating.

Court documents in Kent County show that sheriff’s investigators in Kalamazoo were aware of Sapp’s personal-protection order against Patrick just days after she disappeared. Sheriff’s Detective Sgt. William Sparrow requested a copy of the personal-protection order and affidavit Dec. 10.

Patrick got a ride from a co-worker at Borgess to the Radisson Plaza Hotel & Suites in downtown Kalamazoo. After she was unable to book a room, a hotel courtesy shuttle driver gave her a ride to her car – a gold 1997 Lexus ES300 – in the parking lot of Borgess.

She arrived at the parking lot at about 8 p.m. Just after 10 p.m. that night, her car was found abandoned in a ditch alongside westbound I-94 near Portage, Ind. Inside the car, police found Patrick’s ID, wallet and credit cards. After she was reported missing Dec. 6 when she failed to show up for work at Borgess, her purse and cellphone were found at the hospital.

Last week, YouTube videos surfaced of Patrick talking and singing to an apparent love interest who she refers to as “Love” and “Baby.” The videos were uploaded to YouTube in early November. It’s unknown who the videos were intended for.

Concerns about Patrick’s mental health were raised this week by her ex-husband, Ismael Calderon Jr., who said the couple’s marriage, which ended in 2011, dissolved because Patrick refused to get help for mental illness.

Patrick’s sister, Tenesha Patrick, said Thursday that Teleka has never been diagnosed with any type of mental illness and nothing in her past prompted concerns that something was wrong.

In response to the developments, Patrick’s parents, Irene and Mattahais Patrick, issued a statement saying that, despite the recent discoveries, their focus is on finding their daughter.

What Patrick’s family has learned since Dec. 5, however, has left her family with a lot of questions, Tenesha Patrick said.

“I think it’s clear that there are facets of Teleka’s personal life that the family wasn’t aware of,” Tenesha Patrick said. “... We know that she’s under a lot of stress in her program.

“I guess hindsight being 20/20 ... maybe I missed something.”

Irene and Mattahais Patrick, who have spent several days in Kalamazoo since their daughter’s disappearance, returned to Michigan on Thursday following a trip home to Florida for the holidays.

After returning to Michigan, the family terminated the services of a Kalamazoo private investigator, Carl H. Clatterbuck III, and has hired Jim Carlin, a Battle Creek private investigator who runs Justinian Investigative Services.

Carlin has investigated the disappearance of Mary Lands, a Marshall woman missing since March 2004. Lands was declared dead in 2011.

Tenesha Patrick said it is frustrating that information about her sister's past has surfaced, but "we still have no new information" about her whereabouts.

“The fact of the matter is she’s still missing and we still have no tips or leads about where she might be. ... I cannot lose hope that she is still alive and I will not lose hope until I am told and shown otherwise.

“It’s looking less likely that she’s OK, but with every breath that is left in my body, I refuse to believe that she’s dead.

Police ask that anyone who may have information about Teleka Patrick's whereabouts call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office at 269-383-8748, or contact Silent Observer at 269-343-2100 or
