An autopsy is set to be performed on a woman's body recovered from a northwestern Indiana lake that had been searched for a missing Michigan doctor.

Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris says he expects the autopsy scheduled for Tuesday to determine the identity of the woman and a cause of death.

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

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.
