Authorities in Kalamazoo and Indiana were searching for her, and, so far, the case was being treated as a missing person.Pointing to a plate of veggie bacon, tomatoes and an omelet, she says, “If you were here, this would be your plate.” Her parents have said she was not dating anyone, and they have no idea who she was talking too.Patrick posted a You Tube video in which she lovingly prepared breakfast for her ‘baby’ — but friends and family have no idea who that might have been.Authorities are confidant that when they find “the body” they’ll have more than enough evidence to bring charges against Sapp.Investigators find it ‘interesting’ that Sapp claims to have been stalked by Patrick for over a year, but never made any 911 calls to police, prior to filing the order of protection.
