MONTGOMERY, Ind. (AP) - Southwestern Indiana authorities say a body found near a creek could be that of a former Illinois woman who was swept away by floodwaters in December.

Indiana Conservation officers say a resident found the body Friday amid corn stalk debris near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River at the Pike-Daviess County line.

An autopsy on the body was scheduled for Saturday afternoon at the Vanderburgh County Morgue in Evansville.

Conservation officers say the body was found near the site where crews launched a search for former Des Plaines, Ill., resident Kathryn McGilll on Dec. 29 after a vehicle she and her husband were riding in was swept away by floodwaters.

Adam McGill was rescued by hunters, but his 31-year-old wife could not be located.
