A doctor from northwest Indiana has returned to the Chicago area to face Medicare fraud charges. Mark Weinberger disappeared in 2004 while on a trip to Greece with his wife. He was arrested in December while camping in Italy.

Weinberger is being held at the Metropolitan Corrections Center in Chicago. He faces federal charges and more than 300 civil lawsuits.

He had operated a sinus clinic in Merrillville, Indiana.
