Gregory Hall, 44, drove off with his 14-year-old son Tyler in his vehicle around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police urged residents to be on the lookout for the vehicle believing Hall may be suicidal.

Tyler Hall was last seen when his father picked him up from Greensburg Junior High. 

According to police, The father, who lives just outside of Rushville failed to return his son to the boy's mothers' home in Greensburg at the appointed time. 

A phone call tipped off police that the car could be near the Greensburg City Park around 11:30 p.m. Police say that's where they found both Hall and his son dead inside the vehicle. The gunshot wounds appeared to be inflicted by a handgun.
