Lena Lunsford, the mother of a 3-year-old girl who vanished in Weston more than six months ago, will be sentenced for welfare fraud next month.

U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey entered an order Thursday scheduling the sentencing for May 22 in Elkins.

Lunsford pleaded guilty in January to selling $114 worth of credit on her food stamp card for $50 cash.

She had been indicted on multiple counts in October, accused of swapping for cash five times in two months.

Her daughter Aliayah disappeared on Sept. 24, 2011.

FBI agent John Hambrick said the agency has a theory about what happened, but won't disclose details.
