Pennsylvania State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and local law enforcement agencies resume the search for Mark Sturgis (22), Tom Meo (21), Dean Finocchiaro (19), and Jimi Tar Patrick (19).

Of note, Fox Philadelphia reported Finocchiaro having been arrested multiple times in the past. He was prohibited from possessing a firearm because he had a mental illness and had been involuntarily committed to a mental institution for inpatient care, court documents said. The farm on which Finocchiaro's and the other human remains was found is owned by DiNardo's family. Meo, his friend said, is "the most good-hearted, loyal, hard-working young man I've ever met in my life". A judge ordered him held on $5 million bail. The vehicle was found by police at 4 a.m. Sunday on property owned by DiNardo's parents, according to the Bucks County District Attorney's Office.

The four men went missing over several days last week near Philadelphia.

Jimi Patrick, Tom Meo and Mark Sturgis still have yet to be found.

Local and state police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had embarked on an "all hands on deck" foot-and-air search of the farmland, which is owned Antonio and Sandra Dinardo.

DiNardo's father posted bail for his son on Tuesday, but police re-arrested DiNardo on Wednesday on accusations he attempted to sell Meo's vehicle for $500 the day after Meo was last seen. Weintraub stated that DiNardo also attempted to sell Meo's 1996 Nissan Maxima for $500 the day after his disappearance. Meo and Sturgis were last seen together that same night. "I'll tell you that he was normal up until past year", the friend said.

4 missing "boys" have added up to a big mystery in Pennsylvania, but Bucks County authorities are pursuing all leads and investigators now say they have identified a man as "person of interest" in the case. "Everybody you talk to about this guy, you hear he's mentally unstable". He apparently was the first of the men to go missing.

Leading into their search for the missing men, the Federal Bureau of Investigation used heavy equipment digging a deep ditch on the farm property, sifting through each bucket of dirt by hand.

One of the victims has reportedly been identified as Dean Finocchiaro, 19. However, he added they don't know how numerous young men are the victims of that homicide.

As reported by Blasting News, 20-year-old #Cosmo DiNardo was arrested Monday.

Weintraub was formally an assistant prosecutor in Cape May County and successfully prosecuted the case against former Wildwood police Sgt. David Romeo, who was convicted of official misconduct for kicking two handcuffed suspects in 2007. Previous run in with the law included traffic violations and other minor infractions.

Though it's not entirely clear how all of the missing men might be connected, most, if not all, of them are believed to have known each other.
