The Latest: Police recover evidence in case of 4 missing men
PHILADELPHIA — The Latest on the search in Pennsylvania for four missing men (all times local):
Authorities say they’ve received several pieces of evidence from a sprawling farm property and elsewhere while investigating the disappearance of four young Pennsylvania men believed to be victims of foul play.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub told reporters Wednesday that some of the tips they’ve received are “bearing fruit.” He wouldn’t say what evidence has been recovered.
Police have focused their search on a 90-acre (0.14-square-mile) farm in Solebury and have utilized several law enforcement agencies, heavy construction equipment and cadaver dogs.
Police have called the 20-year-old son of the farm owners a person of interest in the case.
The missing men are 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick. Patrick disappeared a week ago. The other three disappeared Friday.
Police are back for a fourth day searching a large Pennsylvania farm for evidence in the disappearance of four young men believed to be victims of foul play.
The 90-acre (0.14-square-mile) property in Solebury Township has been scoured by law enforcement agencies, heavy construction equipment and cadaver dogs.
Police on Monday arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo on an unrelated gun charge and called him a person of interest in the case but wouldn’t say he was a suspect in the men’s disappearance. His family owns the farm.
Court records show DiNardo was released late Tuesday after his father posted 10 percent of his $1 million bail.

Authorities are gearing up for another day of searching a sprawling Pennsylvania farm for evidence linked to four missing young men.
Cadaver dogs and heavy construction equipment were used Tuesday in the search of farmland in Solebury Township, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Philadelphia.
A person of interest in the case, who had been jailed on an unrelated gun charge, was released Tuesday night after posting 10 percent of his $1 million bail in cash.
Authorities have not called 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, whose family owns the farmland and another property that was searched, a suspect in the case.
Neither DiNardo nor his lawyer could be reached for comment.
