Police are looking for former NFL defensive back Sergio Brown after his mother’s murdered body was found near a creek in the Chicago suburbs this weekend.

Myrtle Brown, 73, was discovered on Saturday afternoon near her home in Maywood, Ill., after relatives told police they could not find her or her son.

An autopsy determined that she had suffered multiple injuries from an assault and her death was ruled a homicide by the Cook County medical examiner’s office, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Maywood police are searching for Sergio Brown, 35, who played seven NFL seasons with four teams from 2010-16.

Undrafted out of Notre Dame, Brown tallied 144 tackles, four fumble recoveries and one interception in 94 games (15 starts) with the New England Patriots (2010-11), Indianapolis Colts (2012-14), Jacksonville Jaguars (2015) and Buffalo Bills (2016).
