SACO, Maine (AP) - Police in Maine say they will launch a criminal investigation into the disappearance of a 23-year-old man after he left a Portland bar early New Year’s Day.

Authorities say James Dyer of Saco was last seen by friends as they left the Pearl nightclub in Portland’s Old Port about 3 a.m. Friday. When his friends turned around, Dyer was gone.

The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1R8TALQ ) quotes Saco Police Sgt. Chris Hardiman as saying a criminal investigation into Dyer’s disappearance will begin Monday.

Police say Dyer has had no contact with family or friends since the New Year’s Eve celebration.

“We are going to treat it seriously,” Hardiman said. “He is with a group of friends, and then he is missing. His family and friends and we have heard nothing of him.”

Dyer is described as a 5-foot-9 white male weighing about 190 pounds with blue eyes, blond hair and facial hair. His ears are pierced with what police described as wooden gauges. He was wearing a red flannel shirt, tan pants and L.L. Bean boots when he was last seen.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Saco police at 207-284-4535.
