The Search For Four Missing PA Men Is Continuing-

Pennsylvania authorities are being meticulous in their search for four missing young men.

At a news briefing yesterday afternoon, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said searchers were using everything from heavy construction equipment to fine sifting tools to look for the four who disappeared last week. The search was being concentrated on a 90-acre property owned by the family of a person of interest in the case.

As we told you before, authorities arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo on unrelated charges and Weintraub has now called him a person of interest. The D.A. said officials are committed to seeing the case through to the end, no matter what the outcome.

DiNardo posted bail last night and was released and reports say it’s not known where he went upon release.

Cancer Researcher From Iran Denied Entry To U.S. And Sent Home-

A cancer researcher from Iran who's been held at the airport in Boston is being sent back to home.

32-year-old doctor Mohsen Dehnavi was coming to Boston on an exchange visa to do research at Boston Children's Hospital. Customs and Border Protection officers detained the doctor, his wife, and their three children, including a baby, and will force them to return to Iran.

The hospital sent a lawyer to the airport yesterday and pleaded with customs officials to release the family. One of the doctor's friends, who is doing research at Boston Children's Hospital, says federal officials are claiming there's an issue with the doctor's travel documents.

US Customs and Border Patrol released a statement to make it clear that the travel ban had nothing to do with it. “This individual was deemed inadmissible to the US based on information discovered during the [customs] inspection for reasons unrelated to the Executive Order,” the agency said in a prepared statement. It continued, “In order to demonstrate that they are admissible, the applicant must overcome ALL grounds of inadmissibility including health-related grounds, criminality, security reasons, public charge, labor certification, illegal entrants and immigration violations, documentation requirements, and miscellaneous grounds.”

The family is back in Iran and Dehnavi will need to complete more paperwork.
