A northwestern Indiana coroner's office says until an autopsy is completed it won't confirm whether a body found in a lake is that of a Michigan doctor missing since December.

Doris Amling of the Porter County coroner's office says an autopsy likely will be conducted Tuesday in hopes of determining the cause of death and identity.

Indiana State Police say divers found a female body in Lake Charles in the town of Porter after a fisherman reported something suspicious Sunday morning.

Police and FBI agents searched the same lake on Jan. 23 for 30-year-old Dr. Teleka Patrick of Kalamazoo, Mich., without finding anything related to her disappearance. Her car was found abandoned on Dec. 5 along Interstate 94 and near the lake about 15 miles east of Gary.
