Pennsylvania police find remains of 1 of 4 missing men

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub announced early Thursday that the remains of one of the four Pennsylvania men who vanished last week have been found.

Weintraub said the remains of Dean Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown were discovered in an "approximately 12-and-a-half-foot, deep grave. We have painstakingly dug with a lot of care not to damage any potential evidence." Additional human remains were also found but have not yet been identified, he added. Since they went missing last week, local and state police, FBI agents, and U.S. marshals have been searching for Finocchiaro, Jimi Patrick, 19, Mark Sturgis, 22, and Tom Meo, 21.

Police have identified Cosmo DiNardo, 20, as a person of interest in their disappearance; he allegedly stole Meo's car and attempted to sell it, and is now being held on $5 million bail. Authorities said they are focusing their search for the missing men on a farm in Solebury Township owned by DiNardo's family. "We're going to see this investigation to the end and we're going to bring each and every one of these lost boys home to their families one way or another," Weintraub said. "And we will not rest until we do that."
