KALAMAZOO, Mich. — An autopsy determined that a body found in an Indiana lake is that of a Michigan doctor who had been missing since December, authorities said Wednesday.

The coroner in Porter County, Ind., said in a news release that it was Teleka Patrick’s body that was pulled Sunday from Lake Charles in the northwest part of the state. The site is about 15 miles east of Gary and near where a car belonging to the 30-year-old doctor was abandoned Dec. 5 along Interstate 94.

Investigation continues to determine the cause of death, the release said. Toxicology results were pending.

Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller said at a news conference in Kalamazoo Wednesday morning that there were no signs of trauma or foul play found on the body. He said an initial cause of death appeared to be drowning.
