After 4 young Pennsylvania men disappear, DA suspects foul play

Jimi Tar Patrick and Dean Finocchiaro

Weintraub has said the search at the DiNardo property is massive and involves major construction equipment, fine sifting equipment and cadaver dogs. During a news conference on Tuesday morning, District Attorney Matthew Weintraub stressed that DiNardo is not being called a suspect at this time.

A half-mile from where Weintraub addressed reporters twice on Monday, authorities searched a 68-acre farm in the 6000 block of Lower York Road in Solebury.

Dinardo was arrested on Monday, and later released on bail, on an unrelated felony firearms charge, said Weintraub.

The missing men's photo have begun to appear on digital billboards along highways in the area.

The property, according to records cited by Philly.com, is owned by Antonio and Sandra DiNardo, of Bensalem.

Earlier, a friend of Meo's, Amb Ro Clark, revealed in a Facebook post there was additional urgency to locate the 21-year-old as he is diabetic.

The fourth person to vanish was Dean Finocchiaro, 18, who was last seen in Middletown Township around 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

State police conducted a search at a home in Solebury Township Sunday evening, but they are not saying what led them to the home.

Sources tell U.S. media that a ping from a mobile phone belonging to one of the men led investigators to the farmland property.

'We're not going to rest until we get through every inch of that property, ' one law enforcement official said.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed by prosecutors, Comso DiNardo was "suffering from mental illness" at the time of his February arrest and was involuntarily committed to a mental institution for inpatient treatment, possibly explaining why the charges were previously dismissed.

Asked if he believes the remains of four men are on the large farm property in Solebury, Weintraub responded, "We're going to continue in the direction that we're going".

The parents of the missing men have gathered nearby as investigators combed the farm. The charge had been dropped, but it was refiled Monday. It's unclear what, if any, connection the disappearances might have, but investigators did confirm that the four men know each other.

Weintraub confirmed Tuesday the Solebury Township property is the main search site, though other locations have been searched as well. "We're making great progress, but there's so much more work to do", he said.

A phone message left at the Dinardo family home in Bensalem was not returned.

A 20-year-old linked to a Pennsylvania farm at the center of a search for four missing men tried to sell one man's auto after he went missing, even as it contained the man's "life-saving" diabetic kit, authorities announced Wednesday. On Friday, Meo, Finocchiaio and Sturgis all vanished.

The families of the missing men have been waiting for answers.

When asked whether he thought the missing men were alive, the district attorney replied, "I hope and I pray that would be the best outcome".
