Of the four #missing men, Newtown Township Police Department said Patrick was reported missing on Thursday after he didn't turn up at work and had no contact with either his family or friends since 6 p.m.
"We're going to continue digging and searching that property until we're satisfied that they are not there", Weintraub said earlier in the day.

"Slow and steady. This is a marathon, not a sprint", said the district attorney.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said officials from at least five municipal police departments, the Pennsylvania State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have been searching farmland in Solebury Township for any trace of the four men, identified as Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, of Newtown; Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg; Dean Finocchiaro, 18, of Middletown; and Tom Meo, 21, of Plumstead. Patrick has been missing since July 5; the others since July 7.
"This investigation is still wide open", Weintraub said. It is not known where DiNardo went after being released from the Bucks County jail, as he did not return his family's home in Bensalem. On Tuesday, Mr. DiNardo's lawyer, Michael Parlow, was not immediately available to answer a telephone message.

SOLEBURY TWP, PA Cosmo DiNardo has been identified by authorities as a "person of interest" in the disappearance of four men.
While the charge was dropped in February, authorities have refiled the charge on Monday. But Weintraub on Tuesday said DiNardo is a person of interest and cited "obvious links" - such as the extensive search of a Solebury property owned by DiNardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra DiNardo.
Weintraub said in a press conference on Wednesday that investigators had uncovered important evidence.
He said: 'The leads are incredibly hot, they're very fruitful. The U.S. Marshal, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, police forces all across the county and other counties have now taken part in this.
"We have people combing the entire county working on this case and the amount of manpower that we've deployed just at this property is mind-boggling", Weiintraub said. He said the search of the site was a painstaking process, using cadaver dogs, heavy construction equipment, including a backhoe, and careful examination of the land "not to miss the tiniest piece of evidence".
The police also found the rope, the ladder and the wheelbarrow as well a burning Mercedes in an underground auto park. Police had published footage from surveillance video asking the public for help in finding the thieves.
