UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The body of a man reported missing in Union County was found in a wooded area near his home on Wednesday and his stepson was arrested in connection with his death, according to police.

Union Public Safety officers were looking for 61-year-old Raymond Davis and his stepson after his family became concerned about the man's welfare.

Family members said Davis had been in an argument with his stepson, 41-year-old Travelle Burros, and had contacted police. Police said when officers and a relative arrived at Davis' home on Union Boulevard, they determined that foul play may be a factor.

Police said Davis' body was found in a wooded area that consisted of dense underbrush.

Police said they located Burros and arrested him with the help of Union County deputies without incident. Police said Burros was charged with murder. 

According to police, Burros lived at the home with Davis. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
