FBI’s Search for 4 Missing Pennsylvania Men Leads to an Arrest

The FBI’s search for four missing Pennsylvania men helped lead to the arrest of a 20-year-old man connected to the case.

Cosmo DiNardo, of Bensalem, Pa., was arrested Monday and lodged in jail on $1 million bond on a gun charge, according to the Associated Press. 

The FBI, who has not identified DiNardo as a suspect in the men’s disappearance, found the 20-year-old in possession of a shotgun and ammunition, despite a history of mental illness and an involuntary commitment.

The FBI searched for signs of the missing men using heavy equipment at a large property owned by DiNardo’s family.

“The leads are incredibly hot, they’re very fruitful. We’re making great progress, but there’s so much more work to do,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said. “We’re not going to rest until we get through every inch of that property.”

The FBI was searching the property because of tips.

One of the men went missing Wednesday, and three others vanished Friday.

Investigators suspect foul play.

“I surely believe there is,” Weintraub said.

A Border Patrol canine that went missing during a tracking operation in Arizona on Feb. 20 has not been found.

Dunja, a dog used by the Tucson Sector Border Patrol, was separated from his handler during an operation on the Tohono O’odham Nation near Papago Farms, Tucson News Now reports. 

Agents continue to search for Dunja, who is 4 years old and has worked with the Border Patrol since August 2016.

The Tucson Sector has more than 100 canines.

The dogs can fetch up to $10,000 because they are already trained.

“They do go through several weeks of training,” said  Daniel Hernandez, spokesman with the Tucson sector. “The canines become a team within the agent and they spend a very long time together as a partner. Conducting all kinds of simulations at the training facility. So there is a huge bond between the canine and the handler.”

Retired FBI Agent Robert Levinson was kidnapped eight years ago this month while traveling to an Iranian island, making him one of the longest-held U.S. residents in history.

CNN reports that the FBI has increased the reward for information on Levinson, who also turned 67 this month, from $1 million to $5 million.

“Levinson traveled to Kish Island, Iran, on March 8, 2007, working on behalf of several large corporations, and his whereabouts, well-being and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance have been unknown since that time,” it said in a statement.

Secretary of State John Kerry urged Iran to cooperate.

“He has spent more than 2,900 days separated from those who love him, and is one of the longest held U.S. citizens in history. Year after year, the family has endured the pain of his absence. It is time for him to come home,” Kerry said.

The FBI is helping search for a college student who has gone missing for four days in Philadelphia.

CBS Philly reports that the bureau’s Violent Crime Task Force is getting involved.

Supervisory Special Agent J.J. Klaver said the search won’t be easy.

“It’s a real challenge,” Klaver said. “Looking for video from surveillance cameras. Trying to determine from the missing the person’s cell phone where they were last using the phone. Interviewing as many people as we can.”

Shane Montgomery was last seen with friends on Thanksgiving Eve, when he was kicked out of a bar for bumping into a bar stool, CBS Philly reported.

Why Would Someone Ambush, Shoot 2 Pennsylvania State Troopers? Special Agent Offers Insight

Eric Frein

It’s still anyone’s guess why someone would ambush two Pennsylvania state troopers and then shoot them with a high-caliber rifle on Sept. 12.

One special agent with the FBI offered some insight into the suspect – 31-year-old Eric Matthew Frein.

Frein lived with his parents and likely was unsatisfied with life, said Ed Hanko, special agent in charge of the Philadelphia Division of the FBI. He played in military re-enactments and may have wanted to fulfill one of those roles.

“We want to arrest this person,”  Hanko said, adding later, “We have the who, the what, the where. We want the why.”

After the attack, Frein took cover in the woods and has been missing since.

The FBI is helping search for a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington state home this weekend, The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The parents, who took FBI-administered polygraph tests, said they waited a day – Sunday – to report Jenise Wright missing because she often wanders off in the fenced-in mobile home park in Bremerton, across from Seattle on the west side of Puget sound.

“We are harnessing all this manpower and expertise because we are covering all the bases,” Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson said. “We only get one chance to do this right the first time.”

Local and state authorities also are searching.

“Anything is possible,” he said. “Children do really surprising things. She could be almost anywhere.”

The United States and at least nine other countries are investigating the disappearance of a Malaysian Airlines jetliner, CBS News reports.

The Boeing 777, which included 239 people, has been missing for four days.

Without any sign of trouble, authorities are having trouble pinning down why the plane disappeared.

It’s unclear whether it was a pilot error, plane malfunction or a hijacking.

The plane departed Malaysia early Saturday en route to Beijing before disappearing from radar.

Is Etan Patz Alive? FBI Asks American in Europe If He went Missing in 1979

Etan Patz, whose 1979 disappearance shocked New Yorkers, was declared dead in 2001, and the 6-year-old’s confessed killer was charged.

But the New York Daily News reports that the FBI asked an American living in Europe if he was Patz.

“Obviously, I was surprised,” the man, who asked not to be identified, said. “I chuckled. I thought it was funny because it was so unlikely that it would be possible that I could be this person. I had no idea who Etan Patz was.”

In fact, the man is 30. Patz would be 41.

It remains unclear why the FBI sought out the man living in Europe.
