The sudden disappearance of four young men in a wealthy area of Pennsylvania has left authorities suspecting foul play.

A major search of the rural region north of Philadelphia has been launched after the four were reported missing last week.

Jimi Patrick, 19, was the first to go missing on Wednesday. Tom Meo, 21, Mark Sturgis, 22, and Dean Finnochario, 18, were all last seen on Friday.

It is believed the four men all know each other, revealed Matthew Weintraub, Bucks County district attorney.

Patrick was reported missing after failing to show up to work, with friends and family unable to contact him.

Meo and Sturgis, who are known to be friends, were last seen together on Friday night. Finnochario was last seen getting into a vehicle at around 6.30pm on the same evening.

“We’ve been treating this from the outset as a criminal investigation and nothing has deterred that from this point,” said Mr Weintraub.

When questioned if foul play was involved, he replied: “It would seem so.”

On Monday state authorities and the FBI were searching an enormous 68-acre farm using metal detectors and sniffer dogs.

A signal from Finnachario’s phone led investigators to the farm, in Solebury Township, according to the New York Times.
