HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Susquehanna Township police have a missing man in custody following a chase Friday night on Interstate 81. Following that incident, investigators discovered a body buried in a field near a motel the man had been staying at.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Trent Tolene for a DUI-related charge, according to detectives.

After searching Tolene's vehicle, police began searching near the river and found the body of Tolene's biological father, 65-year-old James Tommor, near a utility shed in a field just south of the Days Inn on North Front Street.

Police had reported being "concerned" for the safety of Tolene and Tommor, who had last been seen in Susquehanna Township. 

Reports indicate that the two men had been staying at the Days Inn, and on Thursday police were called to investigate suspicious circumstances in a room at the hotel.

An autopsy on Tommor is scheduled for Monday.

Tolene is in Dauphin County Prison on $250,000 bail. Detectives said he was also wanted on warrants out of Cumberland County.
