TROY, Mich. (WXYZ) - Police say they have arrested a person of interest in connection with the disappearance of Troy resident Patrick Mikes.
The person of interest in custody may have been involved in financial crimes in Auburn Hills, according to a news release from the Troy Police Department.

A source close to the case tells 7 Action News that investigators are considering this a homicide. The source says the amount of blood found in the basement indicated an injury that was not survivable.
Police are not revealing his identity until his arraignment on financial crime charges scheduled for tomorrow morning.
Patrick Mikes was reported missing by his two sons, ages 21 and 16, late Sunday morning.

Mikes is 55-years-old. He has short gray hair and is about 6' tall and weighs about 170 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a yellow shirt and black spandex shorts while riding a black and red Cannondale Super 6 road bicycle.
