Surveillance and home videos uploaded to YouTube provide clues about Patrick’s movement in the weeks, days and hours before she vanished.
In a different context, the YouTube videos might be considered sweet or romantic. They feature Patrick talking, cooing and singing to someone unnamed and apparently unknown.
Patrick’s mother told CNN she wasn’t aware of any romantic relationship her daughter may have had. But the videos have an intimate feel to them.
“Hi, baby,” Patrick says in one. “I am just coming to you to say ‘hi’ and tell you about my day.”
In another video, Patrick shows a table set for two with omelets and pancakes.
“If you were here, this is what would be your plate,” she coos.
The two videos were posted in early November. It’s not completely clear why they only drew attention now.
A third video to surface comes from a local hotel in Kalamazoo. That’s where Patrick went on the night of December 5, just hours before police found her car in that ditch.
