So sorry for the passing of your mother.

Did your mother's estate go to probate? Probate would want to see the bank accounts from the date of death. Seeing a check that is over $10k would bring up a red flag.

Really curious how your brother was able to cash a check which had two names on the check and going into an account that didn't have your name listed. Unless he forged the check with your signature and a line that said something to the effect that said monies are transferring to your brother.

Hire a Private Eye, they are pretty good at locating people who are off the grid. Or you can check the Internet by putting in your brother's name into the search and see what pops up. Maybe he is on Facebook, or if he is still working maybe LinkedIn. You can also go to Google Images and type in his name, if his picture shows up then click on the photo to see if there is any info with that photo.
