TROY, Mich. (WJBK) -

After more than a week of searching, police have finally located what is believed to be the body of Patrick Mikes, Senior, a missing father from Troy.  It was found Friday along with a bicycle.

The investigation has led police from a Troy home to a cornfield in Montrose Township off Morris Road in Genesee County.  They think the body was there since July 28.  What is believed to be Mikes' bike was also discovered in the field just 15 feet away from where the body was found.  Troy police are waiting on confirmation that it is indeed Patrick Mikes.

Police were very close to the body Thursday night when they decided to wrap up for the evening.

"The search team that night was within about 30 feet of the body when we called for the termination of that search," said Captain Robert Redmond.

Son Patrick Mikes, Junior is in jail.  He has hired an attorney and is charged with murder.

A car was noticed in Montrose Township on Saturday, July 28 in an area that we're told is traveled lightly.  The body was found near where that vehicle was driving.

"I would say that it was within about two miles of where we had two people identify the car that matched the description of Patrick Mikes, Junior's car as being cruising up and down their street very slowly," Redmond said.

17 police agencies searched 25 square miles.  The field where the body was found is full of corn stalks almost five feet high.
