BANGOR, Maine — Local police are looking for a missing Florida firefighter who last was seen in the area on Thursday, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Tuesday night.

Jerry Perdomo, 31, of Orange City, Fla., drove a rental car from the Sunshine State to Bangor, where it was found abandoned on Friday morning at Walmart off Stillwater Avenue.

He is a firefighter/emergency medical technician for the Seminole County Fire Department and didn’t show up for work as scheduled on Sunday, Florida firefighter/paramedic Shane Rogers said Tuesday night.

He is described as a 200-pound Puerto Rican male, 5 foot, 11 inches, with black hair and brown eyes. Perdomo last was seen wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, fatigue shorts and black sneakers.
