Dozens continue searching Bucks County property in hunt for four missing men

Municipal police from Newtown, Middletown, Solebury, Buckingham and Plumstead Townships are involved in the investigation, along with county detectives, state police and the FBI, Weintraub said. The DA told reporters he is prohibited by law from sharing if a grand jury has subpoenaed anyone in the case but sources said multiple people including DiNardo's parents have been subpoenaed.

The farmland being searched is in the town of Solebury, about 48 kilometres north of Philadelphia.

DiNardo smiled for the photo given out by the Bucks County District Attorney's Office in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, despite the fact that Cosmo had been arrested on a firearms charge.

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

Investigators have focused on several areas in Solebury Township as they narrow their search, including a large property near Aquetong Road near Route 202.

Two of the men, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis and 21-year-old Tom Meo, are longtime friends who work in construction for Sturgis' father, Mark Potash.

Dean Finocchiaro, 18, was last seen about 6:30 p.m. on Friday in Middletown Township. This investigation's leads are incredibly hot.

He said investigators were also working across the county.

The man said he used to hike the property when it was previously owned by a different family.

When questioned if he thought that DiNardo could have done "this" alone, Weintraub said, "I don't even know what the this is that we're talking about yet".

The farm property at the center of the search belongs to Cosmo's parents, 46-year-old Antonio DiNardo and 47-year-old Sandra DiNardo, also of Bensalem Township.

When asked whether he believed foul play was involved in the disappearances, Weintraub said "I sure believe there is".

Weintraub said the investigation is "still wide open".

Police searched DiNardo's home before arresting him for alleged possession of a 20-gauge shotgun and ammunition stemming from a February incident, the Bucks County Courier Times reports. The charge had been dropped, but was refiled Monday.

At least some of the missing men are friends, but it's unclear how well they knew the property owner's son, Cosmo DiNardo, if at all.

On Monday, investigators brought in a backhoe to aid the 40 to 50 volunteers who are helping to search the property.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said Tuesday that they were in an "all hands on deck" investigation of a 90-acre property in Solebury Township.

They were led to the house on Sunday night after finding a vehicle belonging to Meo, one of the missing men, parked in the garage, his father told Philly.com. On Tuesday, Mr. DiNardo's lawyer, Michael Parlow, was not immediately available to answer a telephone message. "But I want to assure you we are utilizing every resource at our disposal to try to find these four missing young men and to solve this case", he said. On Friday, Meo, Finocchiaio and Sturgis all vanished.
