After nearly two years, authorities have a name to go along with a pair of human legs found at a recycling center in South Columbus, and a family is searching for answers.

The Franklin County Coroner says the remains are those of Candice Taylor, a woman who was reported missing. Now her mother is speaking out for the first time.

Taylor's mom says she was still getting messages from her daughter's phone and the last communication was in June 2017, but then the messages stopped. The remains, later identified as her daughter, were found in March 2017, three months before the last text sent from her phone. "Her phone was hacked. Through messenger on Facebook she was still responding to me, " Theodora Taylor said.

Taylor now not only wants to know who pretended to be her daughter, but where the rest of her daughter's body is. "I don't know if the person scattered her, has some parts with him, that's why I'm getting frustrated with police, " she said.

She says she just wants answers and wants to find the person who took her daughter away from her.

"I'm not going to forget about it. Her parts may never pop up; I'm not going to stop looking. I'm not going to give up on her. I'm not okay with just having my daughter's legs, who would be okay with that?" Taylor said.

Columbus Police have not released any suspect information. Police will only say that the case is still being investigated.
