Four young men have been missing for days in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and authorities are now worried they are victims of foul play.

Jimmi Tar Patrick, 19, has been missing since Wednesday, while Mark Sturgis, 22, Dean Finocchiaro, 19, and Tom Meo, 21, vanished Friday, according to a report by ABC News. Stugis, Meo, and Finocchario are mutual friends, according to Sturgis's father.

No human remains have been found in the extensive search for the missing men, said Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub. But authorities continue to comb the whole county, focusing particularly on a site owned by the DiNardo family.

Authorities named Cosmo DiNardo, 20, who was arrested Monday on an unrelated charge of illegally possessing a shotgun and ammunition, as a person of interest in the mens' disappearances, but Weintraub played down its significance.

"Sometimes the chasm between being a person of interest and being a person that's actually accused or arrested and certainly convicted of a crime is so wide that we never cross it," said Weintraub in the ABC News report. "Dinardo has been arrested on charges that do not relate or pertain to this case. We will continue our investigation. Mr. Dinardo may or may not be included."

Weintraub urged anyone with information about the mens' mysterious disappearances to share it with police.

"What we're looking for is information that connects these four men together, that may connect them to the property we're searching, connect them to Cosmo DiNardo, perhaps," Weintraub said. "I can't say if there is that type of information, but if there is, I beg of you to please give it to us and let us run it down. We maintain hope that we will ascertain their whereabouts and bring them home safe."
