Police are seeking the public’s help in finding four Pennsylvania men that they believe have been the victims of foul play, as reported by NBC10.
Authorities are looking for Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, Montgomery County; Tom Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township; Dean Finocchiario, 19, of Middletown Township; and Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, of Newtown Township (pictured left to right), according to reports.
Patrick allegedly disappeared on Wednesday, and was reported missing after not turning up for work or contacting his family. Finocchiario was last seen getting into a vehicle on Friday evening.
Sturgis has been unaccounted for since leaving his Pennsburg home Friday night. Sturgis’ father said he was going to see one of the other missing men, Meo, in Doylestown. The two haven’t been seen since.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said that authorities are investigating the likelihood that all four men know one another.
While Weintraub didn’t provide specific details about the disappearance, he did say that foul play was likely involved.

“It sure would seem so,” he said. “We’ve been treating this from the outset as a criminal investigation, and nothing has deterred that to this point.”
District Attorney’s Office spokesman Larry King also revealed that “a number of search warrants” will be served on Monday, Lehigh Valley Live reported.
Records obtained by The Philadelphia Enquirer indicate that a Solebury, Pennsylvania, farm is being searched in connection with the case. Authorities also confirmed that they arrested the property owners’ son, Cosmo DiNardo, 20, on a firearms charge. Though DiNardo is being held on $1 million bail, the charges appear to be unrelated to the disappearance of the four young men.
District Attorney Weintraub said they are not sure what they’ll find on the multi-acre farm, mentioning that it’s “like finding needles in a haystack.”
State police and detectives from four townships also executed a search at a Solesbury Township home on Sunday night. Sturgis’ father told The Philadelphia Enquirer that they found Meo’s car in the garage.
Weintraub hopes the community will be forthcoming with information, but he urged residents not to “take the law into your own hands.”
Patrick is 5-foot-10-inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a multi-colored polo shirt and gray shorts.
Finocchiario is 5-foot-9-inches tall and weighs 150 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.
Sturgis is 6-foot-1-inch tall and weighs 240 pounds. He has black hair and a black beard.
Meo is 5-foot-5-inches tall and weighs 140 pounds. He has blond hair and blue eyes.
The FBI is currently assisting police with their search. Anyone with information about the case is instructed to call 215-297-8201 or submit a tip to the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office here.
