Meo's 1996 Nissan Maxima, with the title inside, was found Sunday around 4 a.m. ET, on a nearby property owned by the Dinardos, Weintraub said in a news release.

DiNardo's father posted bail for his son on Tuesday, but police re-arrested DiNardo on Wednesday on accusations he attempted to sell Meo's vehicle for $500 the day after Meo was last seen.
