An elderly Florida Lyft driver who was missing since last week was found dead Tuesday. Police have named a person of interest in his alleged murder.

The disappearance of Gary Levin, 74, of Palm Beach County dates back to Jan. 30 when he was expected to meet his girlfriend for dinner. It is believed Levin picked up a customer in Delray Beach, Florida, but no one heard from him after, ABC 7 reported.

Police initiated a search operation spanning Florida and North Carolina. On Feb. 2, his vehicle was finally tracked by cops in Miami and then in a rural area north of Lake Okeechobee.

Cops arrested the man at the wheel, Mathew Flores, who is a felon in a homicide in southwest Florida. His arrest was made after a high-speed pursuit through three counties and police named Flores the person of interest in the death of Levin, according to the outlet.

Levin's body was reportedly found not far from where he vanished and his daughter Lindsay DiBetta, spotted it was him. A bereaved DiBetta told New York Post that her hopes of her father returning alive were dashed upon finding his body.

Flores, 35, is being held on no bond for a parole violation and a $615,000 bond for charges in North Carolina that include eluding law enforcement, speeding, and intoxicated driving, on top of a second-degree murder charge stemming from a fatal shooting he was involved in.

However, Flores hasn't been charged with Levin's death.

"My dad was truly a one of a kind person, if you knew him or even met him once you know exactly what I mean when I say that," Levin wrote on a social media tribute to her father. "The stories I have received about him from friends, family and complete strangers over the last week have lifted me up more than you can ever realize."

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for the outpouring love and prayers throughout this nightmare situation. At this time my family and I are asking for privacy so we can process the...

Levin had no medical conditions. Police are yet to reveal the exact cause of Levin's death.
