JACKSON, Maine -- State Police say they suspect foul play in the disappearance of Florida firefighter Jerry Perdomo.

State Police believe Perdomo was last seen at a home on Hadley Mills Road in Jackson, and searched the home Sunday morning and afternoon.

The home belongs to the father of 24-year-old Daniel Porter.

Police believe Porter, and his 25-year-old girlfriend, Cheyanne Nowak, are the last people to have seen Perdomo before he went missing on February 16.

Police are searching three impounded vehicles in relation to the case: Perdomo's rental car found in the Bangor Wal-Mart parking lot last Friday, the car Porter and Nowak rented last week, and the car the couple left behind in Oakland before leaving the state.

Detectives found the couple driving in Connecticut and questioned them. They have since returned Maine.

State Police have also searched and gathered evidence from a dumpster at the Hannaford grocery store on Stillwater Ave. near the Bangor Wal-Mart.

Police at the State Police crime lab in Augusta are processing the evidence gathered from the searches.

Seminole County Firefighters, Bangor Firefighters, and Perdomo's brother-in-law canvased the Jackson area Sunday afternoon, posting missing signs with Perdomo's picture.

"State police have been out here, and we know that Jerry has spent some time out here with people," Chris Learch, Perdomo's brother-in-law, told NEWS CENTER.

"We're just trying to spread out beyond the city limits," said Learch.

"We just want to find Jerry and bring him home," he said.

The first sign Learch posted in Jackson was on a tree in front of the home police were searching.

"Bottom line, Jerry's missing," Seminole County Firefighter Troy Todak told NEWS CENTER.

"Jerry's a friend, a brother," said Todak.

"And we need to bring him home."

Anyone with information is asked to call Maine State Police in Augusta at 207-624-7076.
