MONTGOMERY, Ind Authorities say a body found near a southwestern Indiana creek has been identified as that of a former Illinois woman who was swept away by flood waters in December.

Indiana Conservation Officer Mike Kellner said Saturday that an autopsy also found that 31-year-old Cathryn McGill had drowned.

A local resident found the former Des Plaines, Ill., woman's body Friday amid corn stalk debris near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River at the Pike-Daviess County line.

That's near the site where crews launched a search for McGill on Dec. 29 after a vehicle she and her husband were riding in was swept away by floodwaters along State Road 257.

Adam McGill was rescued by hunters, but his wife could not be located.
