Two men who disappeared from Cambria County are now presumed dead. 19-Year-old Damien Taniszewski and 32-year-old James Smith were last seen in Portage. District Attorney Kelly Callahan says she believes this is a drug related incident and that foul play is involved. Authorities have arrested one person, Landon Reighard, who they believe has information that he is not telling them about what happened. He is facing charges of hindering apprehension and is in jail on $150,000 bail. A truck police believe they were driving was found on the Somerset Pike. Today Callahan says they have reason to believe the two men were in Johnstown sometime on the night of March 26. "If we let all of the information out to the public of everything we know, it could taint what an individual in the future would tell us. We have to safeguard. I know it is frustrating for the public, because you want answers and you want to know. There is a reason we have to sometimes seal investigative matters." Crimestoppers is offering a $5 thousand dollar reward.
