PAKISTAN (WSFA) - Five young men who vanished from the Washington state area last month are believed to be in a Pakistani prison tonight.

An investigation is underway to determine whether the U.S. citizens are linked to extremist groups in Pakistan.

The men have been arrested but no formal charges have been filed.

The FBI has been searching for the men since their families reported them missing.
