By David Bailey and Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - A body recovered on Sunday from a northwestern Indiana lake has been confirmed as that of a Michigan doctor who went missing early in December and likely drowned, authorities said on Wednesday. Teleka Patrick, 30, missing since December 5, was found not far from the spot where police came across her car with a flat tire parked along an interstate highway at night, Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller told a news conference. Investigators said that on several previous occasions Patrick had urgently departed from Kalamazoo, staying away for a day or more and typically checking into a hotel. Patrick was a first-year psychiatry resident at the Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine and worked at Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo.
