SOLEBURY TWP., Pa. - Cadaver dogs and heavy equipment are being used as police continue to search a sprawling Pennsylvania farm for evidence linked to four missing young men.
Videos show a line of police recruits Tuesday combing through cornfields on a property in Solebury Township.
The property owner's son, Cosmo DiNardo, 20, has been named a person of interest and was taken into custody on $1 million bail over a prior unrelated gun charge. He is not allowed to have a gun because of his history with mental illness. Officials say he is a flight risk, but not a suspect in the case.
"There are some very obvious links, there is some information that I can't share with you," said Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
The DiNardo family also owns a concrete company. The FBI has been searching a pile of broken concrete slabs on the farm with a frontloader.
The tie to the Dinardo Solebury property is unclear, but the family of one of the missing men, Mark Sturgis, told 69 News his car was found down the road at Peddler's Village.
Weintraub said Tuesday he is still holding out hope the men will be found alive.
One went missing Wednesday and three others on Friday.
They are identified as Sturgis, 22, Tom Meo, 21, Dean Finocchiaro, 19, and Jimi Tar Patrick, 19.
