BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) - Police in Battle Creek are searching for a second missing man that they believe has a connection to Harold Ordway, according to 24 Hour News 8 sources.
The second missing man, identified as 32-year-old Michael VanBuskirk, was living at Ordway's home on Woodward Avenue in Battle Creek to help with a remodeling project, said police.
According to VanBuskirk's family last heard from him on Aug. 27.
On Friday evening, VanBuskirk's family said that they have been in contact with Battle Creek Police. They say that police continue to be concerned for VanBuskirk's welfare and will continue to investigate his connection with Ordway.
Police have no new leads in the case as of Friday evening.
Ordway was arrested for possession of a weapon as a felon on Sept. 2 following a crash in Allegan County. He is being held in the Allegan County Jail, and according to police, he is not cooperating in their investigation.
During the crash investigation, an Allegan County deputy found a bloody mattress in the back of the pickup truck that Ordway, 41, was driving.
Police are also looking for 53-year-old Paul Atchley, and fear he may have been injured or harmed by his acquaintance, Ordway.
Investigators later learned Atchley was staying with Ordway at Ordway's parents' house on Manning Lake Road in Barry County. They say Atchley had been sleeping there in the back of the pickup truck.
Barry County sheriff's officials say the blood found in the truck is being analyzed, but didn't have a timeframe for results.
