PORTER (AP) — Indiana State Police say a search of a Porter lake failed to turn up any evidence related to the disappearance last month of a Michigan doctor.
Police said Wednesday that the Jan. 23 search of Lake Charles in Porter was part of an ongoing missing person’s case involving Teleka Patrick of Kalamazoo, Mich. Her car was found abandoned by an Indiana State Police trooper on Dec. 5 along Interstate 94 and near the lake.
Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller has said Patrick told colleagues on Dec. 5 she was going to Chicago to visit a relative, but told another colleague she needed money and a ride to a nearby hotel.
