Mystery as 4 Young Friends Go Missing in Pa. County
Jimi Tar Patrick   (Newtown Township Police Department)

Officials are saying little about the mysterious disappearance of four young men in Bucks County, Pa., this week, with investigators specifying the only connection they're aware of between the men is one of friendship. CBS Philadelphia has the timeline: Jimi Tar Patrick, described as being in his late teens, was last seen Wednesday at 6pm; no friends or family have heard from him, and he's missed work, all out of character for him. Dean Finocchiaro, 18, was next to go missing and was last seen getting into a car around 6:30pm Friday. That same night saw the last known sighting of friends Mark Sturgis, 22, and Tom Meo, 21.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports on one potential development Sunday: the search of a home in Solebury Township involving a state police helicopter, police dogs, and local detectives from Solebury, Middletown, Newtown, and Buckingham townships, in addition to Philadelphia. WPVI reports that officials aren't saying anything about what drew them to the house, which WTXF describes as "seemingly abandoned." It reports a car belonging to one of the missing men was found in its garage. Police aren't commenting on whether the four might be in danger. (Meanwhile, this celebrity's missing daughter has been found.)
