Ex-NFL player arrested for bond violation expected to be questioned about girlfriend disappearing

A former National Football League player is allegedly a person of interest in the disappearance of his girlfriend in late April.

U.S. Marshals working in the fugitive task force took Eric Ware, Jr., 40, into custody on Friday at a northwest Houston, Tex., strip mall for an unrelated bond violation.

Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators reportedly want to talk to him about Taylor Pomaski, 29, a woman who allegedly went missing on or about April 26 after a house party in the suburban Houston town of Spring.

Cops apparently believe that Pomaski may have been the victim of foul play and have deemed her vanishing suspicious.

A tight end, Ware played 11 games for the then-Washington Redskins in 2003 and five for the San Francisco 49ers in 2004, recording four receptions in the process for 26 yards.

Ware “was picked up on a warrant for failing to report for bond supervision in the last two months for previous charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession with the intent to deliver controlled substances in Montgomery County,” KPRC, Click2Houston, reported.

Another man, Pomaski’s former boyfriend, who was in touch with her via email prior to the disappearance, claimed that “There could be others that were around the house that night. I don’t know that for certain, but Kevin knows exactly what happened.”

Ware and Pomaski may have lived together in the home where the party took place, according to some reports.

The friend, Eric Zulegar, also reportedly contends that the missing woman was involved in a toxic or abusive relationship.

He previously told Houston’s ABC 13 that “She was in danger, and she was in trouble. There was violence, she referenced a gun being pulled on her. She was very scared, very nervous.”

“Taylor is a great, bubbly, bubbly woman and her parents and family and friends miss her a lot,” Zulegar noted.

After Ware got out on bond in April, “witnesses reported a violent fight between the couple. She disappeared and Ware stopped showing up for court appearances,” ABC 13 added.

Family members reported Taylor missing on May 11. In an April 23 Facebook post, Taylor indicated that she was “in a relationship with Kevin Ware.”

Authorities have asked anyone with information about the woman’s disappearance to contact the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit or the crime-stoppers organization of Houston.

The Texas Equusearch missing persons team is also participating in the search for Taylor Pomaski, having extended its search to about 200 miles, and is working closely with detectives on the inquiry.

“In one of the missing person’s flyers created in the search for Taylor Pomaski, her mother said, ‘We are extremely concerned because left behind was the love of her life Mauly, her dog, and all her belongings…Taylor’s very loved by so many and we just want her home,'” Inside Edition reported.

As a person of interest, authorities do not consider Kevin Ware a suspect in Taylor Pomaski’s disappearance at this juncture.
