Bangor police have reportedly interviewed a local couple in connection with the search for a Florida firefighter who has been missing for more than a week.

According to the Bangor Police Department’s Facebook page, police issued a press release Thursday, Feb. 23 asking for the public’s help in locating Daniel Porter, 24, and 23-year-old Cheyanne Nowak.

The duo, whom police said have a romantic relationship, were being sought in connection with the disappearance of 31-year-old Jerry Perdomo of Orange City, Fla. Perdomo reportedly serves as a firefighter with the Seminole County Fire Department.

“It is believed that one, or both of these individuals may have had contact with Mr. Perdomo shortly before his disappearance on the evening of February 16th,” police said in the press announcement.

Statewide media reports indicate that while Nowak currently lists a Newburgh address, she is formerly from Brooks and that Porter is a resident of Jackson.

Friday morning, Feb. 24, the Bangor Police Department posted a message stating that the couple had been located because of the tips that came in from the public.

“As a result of the assistance provided by the public following yesterday’s press release, we have located Daniel Porter and Cheyanne Nowak and have been able to interview them regarding the Jerry Perdomo missing persons investigation,” the Facebook post stated. “We would like to thank the public for their assistance. This investigation is continuing and we have no further information to provide at this time.”

There was no indication that either Nowak or Porter had been charged in connection with the case, nor was it clear where police had found them.

A call to the Bangor Police Department Friday morning for more information was not immediately returned.

According to police, Perdomo was last seen in Bangor on the evening of Thursday, Feb. 16. His rental car, a 2011, gold Toyota Camry with a Florida registration number 486 LAR was located on the morning of Friday, Feb. 17 in the Walmart parking lot on Stillwater Avenue in Bangor.

Perdomo is described as a Puerto Rican male, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, 200 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, army fatigue shorts and black sneakers. According to statewide media reports, Perdomo is married with two children.

Police had initially reported that the couple was believed to be travelling in a white 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer, but in Thursday’s press announcement, police corrected that statement and instead told the media that the two were believed to be driving a tan 2005 Hyundai Alantra sedan with Maine temporary plates.

On her Facebook page, Nowak posted a comment either late Thursday or early Friday that appeared to be in reference to the search for Perdomo.

The post, in its entirety, read, “To all of you whom I do not know: Please stop friending me. I don’t know you. I don’t want to know you. I don’t know what else to do. I’m sorry for your loss. ‘Im sorry your friend is missing. It is a terrible thing. I am so sorry about this. But I can do nothing further. Night.”

One of Nowak’s friends added a comment that said Nowak was “not involved.”
