The continuing search for a missing Troy father is focusing on areas near Montrose Township in Genesee County.
Police say they believe 55-year-old Patrick Mikes Sr. was killed in his basement in Troy. His sons said he left on his bike July 27 when they reported him missing two days later. A body hasn't been found.
Twenty-one-year-old Patrick Mikes Jr. had earlier been charged with using credit cards belonging to his 16-year-old brother. Police say he was arrested again Wednesday and is expected to appear Thursday in court to face an open murder charge in connection with his father’s disappearance.
