CARROLL PLANTATION — A town man who abruptly disappeared with his children in apparent violation of a custody arrangement is probably out of state, a state police spokesman said Wednesday.

The fact that no one has telephoned with information regarding Peter Perfect, 44, Aleah Perfect, 6, and Amara Perfect, 2, since their disappearance Sun-day leads to this conclusion, said Stephen McCausland, state police spokesman.

“They could be just keeping a low profile but such widespread attention in the state media would generate at least a couple of calls,” McCausland said Wednesday.

State police issued a nation-wide teletype and asked the Transportation Security Ad-ministration, the federal organization overseeing security at airports and other transportation centers, to search center parking lots for Perfect’s car, McCausland said.

Perfect was last seen with his children in a gold and tan 2003 Saturn Ion with Maine license plates 3070 LH. His wife Jodie reported them missing Monday morning after he failed to drop the children off early Sunday per their agreement.

A 44-year-old construction worker, Perfect and his children were last seen at a Lincoln church on Sunday afternoon and it’s possible that he is heading for Anchorage, Alaska, where he had once lived, McCausland said.

Jodie Perfect said Tuesday that she fears Peter might harm her, himself or maybe even the children, but state police have no evidence that he or the children are in danger.

Perfect or anyone who has seen him or his children or knows anything of their whereabouts should contact state police at 1-800-432-7381.
