    Was he walking?
    I will admit the first thing I thought about was, leaving a bar at 3am... is it near water?
    Looks like water might not be far away...
    I hope he didn't enter the water.
    IMOO.

    His ears are pierced with what police described as wooden gauges.

    He was with a group of friends when he disappeared. The criminal investigation unit will take over the case Monday morning.

    Everything in Portland is near water. It's on a headland in the bay. But The Pearl is in the tourist district down by the harbor, so it's really close to water. Like maybe a block away. Yeah, bad feeling about this one.

    Police have received tips on alleged sightings of Dyer from Wells to Auburn.

    Amy Dyer, James' mother, said, "They were walking towards the car and there was quite a group of people and his friend turned around and he was just missing, he just disappeared." Dyer said she knew something was wrong when she didn't hear from her son. "It's not like him to do this. He's constantly in contact with all of us. He never misses work."

    From what [his mother] has been able to piece together from her son’s friends, whose memories of the events are hazy, her son suddenly disappeared outside the Pearl nightclub when the streets were packed with New Year’s Eve revelers.

    She said her son’s phone had gone dead earlier in the evening, so his friends yelled for him. They waited at their car, parked at the Union Wharf parking garage, for some time but Dyer never showed up.

    She said her son, known as “Jim” to his friends and “Jimmy” to his family, is very conscientious about remaining in contact. She said he is even more conscientious about showing up for work at his job as night operations manager at the Hannaford supermarket in Kennebunk, where he has rarely, if ever, missed a day of work.

    The fact that he didn’t show up for his shift at 7 p.m. Saturday is very worrisome.

    The family said there have been several sightings of Jim Dyer since the alert went out, including one by a city bus driver who said he drove Dyer to Monument Square in Portland. Other reports have placed him in Auburn and Wells. Portland police said they are working with Saco police to find Dyer.

    His family and friends were back in the Old Port on Sunday to search the nearby waterfront. Amy Dyer said her son loved the water and boats.

    She said police were trying to get video from the numerous surveillance cameras posted around the Old Port.

    On Sunday afternoon, Portland officers, along with the city’s fire boat and a Coast Guard vessel, conducted an extensive search of the waterfront, its piers and inlets, but could not find any sign of Dyer.

    I feel certain he will end up in a waterway, with a cause of death of "accidental drowning" like always happens in these cases of young men leaving bars intoxicated and disappearing in the parking lot.

    Prayers this time it won't be the exact same story.

    He might've gone back into the bar and didn't hear his friends yelling, then walked outside to discover them gone, wandered in confusion and gotten lost. I hope he's found soon but re: alcohol and water I'm worried.

    Remember Nic Kyllingstad. Once you've met someone, a small part of them lives on, never to be forgotten. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...-November-2015

    I've been to the Portland waterfront many times.
    There are lots of businesses there, so hopefully there is footage of Jim somewhere.
    Praying he is not in the water...

    If he's in the water, it will probably be spring before his body comes to the surface. I hope it's not and that some of those sightings are really him, that he's okay somewhere.

    I am hoping that since a large crowd was dispersing from the Pearl when Jim did, someone saw where he went, whether he was seen with anyone when LE questions people who were at the scene. Wonder also if any patrons recall if he spoke to someone other than his group that night in the club. Praying he is not a smiley face victim. This scenario is all too familiar, unfortunately. I was in Portland New Years Day but across the water at Ledge Light and had no idea he was missing. Had I known, I would have driven over to Old Port and help look for him. I'm not even sure if family knew he was missing at that time. I saw no Coast Guard activity when I was on the waterfront that day.
    For those who look sunwards, the shadows fall behind.
