FT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - A local family digs for days searching for their loved one.

Tony DiFrancesco recieved a tip that could lead him to his brother, Patrick, who was murdered 25 years ago.

The tip led him to a 110-acre site near Ft. Pierce where, he believes, his brother may be buried.

Tony's been digging for days and says cadaver dogs alerted there are human remains somewhere. "When you lose a brother or sister, it's very hard not knowing. Then, finding out it's murder, and the people not being brought to justice, that's not acceptable," said DiFrancesco.

He's offering $100,000 of his own money to find out what happened to his brother.

He says he won't stop digging until they find him.
