Inheritance question.

This is for a story I'm writing and I'm not really sure what to do about this part. Here's the basic background, and then the question, and hopefully ya'll can help me out.

A woman gave her daughter up for adoption, but years later when her daughter was in her early 20's the two reunited. The woman, her husband and her daughter are in an accident where the woman and husband both die and the daughter is never found. She's presumed dead but there's no body, only a torn bloody bit of her shirt. The woman's only living relative at this point is her estranged brother.

What would happen to her belongings if she didn't have a will specifying who they went to? Would they not have gone to the daughter anyway because she'd been put up for adoption? Would they automatically go to the brother because he's the only living relative?
