HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A man is sought for questioning in the death of a Hilton Head Island man.

A man known as Jonathan Elias-Basque is a person of interest in the death of 35-year-old Pascual Rubio Garcia, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. 

Garcia's body was discovered on the night of Sept. 21 in the marsh of the Jarvis Creek Preserve; four days after he was reported missing by family members. The BCSO says foul play has been suspect in his death. 

On Sept. 25, the sheriff's office got a tip that Garcia's vehicle had been located in the parking lot of a Subway restaurant in Richmond, VA. Employees of the restaurant said the vehicle had been there since Sept. 15. They had not seen who left it parked there. 

Investigators went to Virginia to process the vehicle and collect evidence, which has been submitted for analysis. 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Investigator Cpl. J. Moran at 843.255.3422 or CrimeStoppers.
