OKMULGEE, Okla. (AP) - A Colorado man found in Oklahoma with his missing 1-year-old daughter has been arrested on a murder warrant for the death of the child's missing mother.

Police in Boulder, Colorado, said on Twitter Thursday that 32-year-old Adam Densmore (pictured below) was served a first-degree murder warrant for the death of Ashley Mead. Jail records do not list an attorney for Densmore, who was arrested Wednesday in northeast Oklahoma, where he was found with his daughter, Winter Mead.

Police say the child's mother, Ashley Mead, remains missing and a woman's body was found in Okmulgee, about 40 miles from where Densmore and the girl were found.

A spokeswoman for the Oklahoma medical examiner says the body hasn't been identified and it isn't clear how long the process will take.

Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly told The Daily Camera  that two officers were sent to Oklahoma to investigate.

Densmore was arrested and booked into the Pawnee County Jail Wednesday but has since been booked into the Okmulgee County Jail.
