Police in suburban Berkeley say they have found the remains of a man they believe was reported missing in Chicago after he was allegedly involved in a gas station burglary.

According to authorities, Berkeley police and fire were called to an area between Interstates 294 and 290, just south of Charles Road, at approximately 2:52 p.m. Tuesday.

Upon arrival, officers were informed by a construction crew that they had discovered a body at the scene.

Officials now believe that the individual the crew discovered was Delbert Miller. Miller was reported missing to the Chicago Police Department in November by concerned family members, according to the press release.

Miller was last seen in Berkeley in October of last year, with police saying he had last been seen fleeing officers following his alleged involvement in a burglary at a local gas station, according to the release.

The case is currently being investigated by Illinois State Police.
