BLAKELY, GA (WALB) - Conyers Police chased down two suspects who were in a missing south Georgia man's truck Friday. His truck was used in two home invasions in Conyers.

Thomas Entrekin disappeared last month, and today, Conyers police were in Early County, working to help figure out what happened to Entrekin.

Right now investigators are still trying to figure out the connection between suspects Demitric Lawson and Darrian McDaniel and missing person Thomas Entrekin.

On January 5th, the two suspects led police on a short chase through Conyers in Entrekin's truck. Dashcam video shows Entrekin's truck speeding through the area, exiting on and off the highway.

Entrekin's truck was used in two home invasions at this apartment complex in Conyers. Two agencies are now working hard spending today trying to piece together some clues.

"Right now we are all working together. I've met with some investigators from Conyers and we are just trying to follow any leads at this time," said Detective Michael Rogerson.

McDaniel is from Eastpoint and Lawson is from Atlanta. Early County investigators tell us Entrekin was picking up some tile in East Point to do some remodeling when he was reported missing January 29th.

His friends tell us he lived by himself and leased out his land for hunting. Investigators say in a missing person's case like this, cooperation between agencies is important to have success.

"It's kind of good to have them come down, because it was going to the point where either I had to go up there or they came down here so we could all have a meeting of the minds and work together on this," said Rogerson.

In the meantime Entrekin's truck is still in Conyers' police possession and both McDaniel's and Lawson's bond hearing is set for February the 17th.
