Four Pennsylvania Men Go Missing in One Week

In Pennsylvania, the FBI has joined the search for four men in their twenties who have gone missing within one week. When asked whether foul play might be involved, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said, “I surely believe there is.” Police reportedly have a lot of leads and the search is focused on one rural area about 30 miles north of Philadelphia. Two of the young men, Mark Sturgis and Tom Meo, are longtime friends who work in construction for Sturgis’ father. The third man, Dean Finocchiaro, is one of their mutual friends. They were all last seen on Friday. The fourth man is named Jimi Tar Patrick and was last seen last Wednesday. The young men have been described as good kids and there is no known motive; the only connection appears to be that they all knew each other. Though officials didn’t disclose many details of the search, they said they are confident they will solve the case. “We’re not exactly sure what we’re going to find there, but we’re pretty confident that the investigation is proceeding in the direction we believed that it would,” Weintraub said.
