Tulsa Police say 89-year old Roland Buck man was found by his nephews who stopped by to check on his well being. 

Police got the call around 8 p.m. Thursday. 

Buck's nephews had driven by the house a couple of times this week, but Thursday night they noticed his Buck's car was missing from the driveway. 

The nephews told police this was unusual, so they stopped to check on him.  That is when they found him dead inside the home.  They told police; Buck had been bound and beaten. 

Tulsa Police say there are no signs of forced entry, but his car is still missing.

"The last time he was heard from was this past Sunday about 5 p.m.  And as of the time of death, it's probably been a day or two," said Tulsa Police Captain Richard Alexander. 

Police have released a description of the victim's missing car. 

It is a 2002 silver four-door Toyota Camry with an Oklahoma license tag of WEC-520.  The car recently was involved in a minor accident and has scratches on the front passenger quarter panel.
