The mystery began when a 19-year-old college student, Jimi Patrick, was reported missing last Wednesday. Two days later, Dean Finocchiaro, 18, got into a friend's car and hasn't been seen since.

The next day, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis and his buddy Tom Meo, 21, failed to show up at their construction jobs.

A ping from Finocchiaro's cellphone led cops to a farm. A car belonging to Meo was reportedly found hidden in a shack just off the property.

Cosmo DiNardo, whose father owns the farm, has been arrested on an unrelated gun charge. Cops are considering him a person of interest in the case, and he is now being held on $1 million bail.

In an affidavit police say Cosmo DiNardo was "known to be suffering from mental illness."

DiNardo is also a Facebook friend of Patrick, one of the missing men.
