LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Police have identified mummified remains of a man found in a Lexington storage unit and the man's daughter has been charged with stealing his Social Security checks.

Now, federal authorities are searching for the indicted woman's mother, who was last seen in March.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/QCmINV ) that the remains found in the Econo-Self Storage unit in January are those of Luther Broughton. His daughter, Judith Maria Broughton, stands accused in Texas of stealing more than $150,000 of her father's Social Security retirement benefits.

Ginn wasn't sure how long Luther Broughton's body had been in storage, but said "the unit was probably rented specifically for that."

Authorities are now looking for Judith Broughton's mother.
