EARLY CO., GA (WALB) -

Investigators are asking for help from the public to find a missing man who disappeared in January.

They say 54-year-old Thomas Entrekin was reported missing on January 29th.

But last week, police in Conyers discovered his truck was used in a home invasion.

Investigators say he lived by himself.

His home belonged to his parents, and he was actually working on remodeling it when he disappeared. 

The family said they are staying strong while police conduct their search.

Last Friday, Entrekin's truck was used in a home invasion. The two suspects, Demitric Lawson and Darrian McDaniel, and one juvenile are in custody after leading police in Conyers on a chase.

"They had some people in custody in reference to the incident, and some other burglaries but Mr. Entrekin was not one of the people taken into custody," said Early County Investigator Michael Rogerson.

Officials say they aren't sure if Entrekin knows the suspects or if they stole his truck.

"They are trying to figure out what was the connection between him and the suspects that were arrested," Rogerson said.

They don't believe he sold his truck.

Now they are hoping to find a link between the suspects and Entrekin, and ask anyone with information to come forward.
