FOWLER, Ind. (AP) - A northwestern Indiana sheriff says the body of a missing Florida woman has been found buried in the backyard of her recently deceased daughter’s home.

Benton County Sheriff Butch Pritchett tells WLFI-TV (https://bit.ly/1szeJ4t ) the body of 68-year-old Nena Metoyer of Dunedin, Florida, was found buried Saturday afternoon in the town of Fowler, about 70 miles south of Gary.

Metoyer was reported missing on Sept. 24, the day before her daughter, 49-year-old Teresa Jarding, died of natural causes at a hospital in Lafayette. Metoyer had traveled to Fowler in August to care for her daughter, who was in failing health.

Metoyer’s vehicle was parked outside the daughter’s home, police said at the time. Relatives told police they had not spoken to Metoyer for about two weeks before she was reported missing.
