UPDATE 2:00 p.m. Authorities say a 32-year-old man is a suspect in the abduction and slaying of a pizza delivery driver whose body was found in an eastern Ohio state park.

Guernsey County Sheriff Michael McCauley said Friday that Adam Charles Burris is believed to have abducted and killed 26-year-old Kayla Thompson, who did not return from a pizza delivery run Thursday.

Burris is being held on an unrelated domestic violence warrant, and hasn't been charged in this case. No attorney information was available.

McCauley said Burris led authorities to Thompson's body near a boat ramp at Dillon State Park in Muskingum County, about 65 miles east of Columbus.

Deputies used Burris' cellphone to track and stop him on Interstate 70 after he was reported to be driving the pizza delivery vehicle Thursday.

Authorities are investigating an abduction and death at a state park in eastern Ohio.

It started Thursday when Cambridge police reported that a female pizza delivery person hadn't returned to work and may have been abducted by a man, possibly her boyfriend.

Deputies used the man's cellphone to track him, and State Highway Patrol troopers stopped him in the pizza delivery vehicle on Interstate 70 in Guernsey County around 7:15 p.m.

Later, the woman's body was found at Dillon State Park in Muskingum County.

The suspect was taken into custody. No names have been released, and no other information was immediately available.
