Robert Mayer

August 14, 2013

There is a myth surrounding the reason people go missing. The public thinks that a person goes missing while doing something shady or nefarious; that disappearing is the result of a bad choice. While people do go missing after making a bad choice; getting a car with a stranger, hitch-hiking or drinking too much and then trusting someone he/she just met, the vast majority of people go missing while doing everyday things. They go missing on their daily jog, a stroll through the neighborhood, on a shopping trip. While some people do go missing while out-of-town or vacationing, most people go missing in an area they know and are familiar with. And many people go missing on their way to work, at work on or on their way home. This is the case of Robert Mayer.

Robert Mayer is just a regular guy. He lives in Dix Hills, New York. He’s an electrician with a wife, Ida, and two kids he adores. He really doesn’t like to go out too much; he’d just rather stay home with his family. In their sixteen year marriage, Robert and his wife have never spent a night apart.

On June 14, 2013, Robert—Rob—left early, like he did every morning, for his job in Fort Green, Brooklyn where he was working as an electrician on a new theater complex. He was out the door by 4:30. He climbed into his bright red Pontiac GTO. The car was his baby. This morning was absolutely no different than any other work day. At around nine, he called his wife. They talked about the upcoming Fathers Day. They were planning a family bar-b-que. Ida promised to get some lobster. They also talked about the vacation they were planning in July, to Italy. They were excited. Then nothing. Rob did not come home that evening. He hasn’t been home at all.

It has been confirmed that Robert did show up for work at the job site at 262 Ashland Place. He put in a day’s work. The last known where-a-bouts of Rob Mayer was at 2:15 p.m. the Arrow Scrap yard in West Babylon where he would go to sell scrap from his job.  About a half hour after that visit Rob’s cell phone was turned off.

The next day, Rob’s car was found in the parking lot of the Long Island Railroad at the Deer Park Station. They keys were not in it. The seat was pushed up, as if someone shorter than Rob’s six foot frame had driven it there. The car’s trunk, where he kept his tools and lunch box was empty. Ida says that Rob never would have left his car there. He was too concerned about thefts.

So, where is Rob Mayer? I don’t think he got on that train for some unknown destination. I don’t think he walked away from his wife, his job and his children. I think someone knows what happened.

Robert Mayer is a 46 year old, white, man. He is 6 feet tall and weights 200 pounds. He left middle finger is slightly chopped off. He has a mole under his right eyes. He was last seen wearing a grey polo shirt with a J.C Electrical logo, light blue jeans, black work books and sunglasses. It is important to note that Robert left his wallet home that day so he does not have his identification with him.

I want you to take a good look at his picture and the picture of his car. Did you see Robert on June 14th or after? ? Did you see his car? Did he buy coffee from you? Did you notice him at a stop light? Did you see him get into or out of his car? Did you see him go into any place of business? Any residence? If you know Robert, did you have any sort of conversation with him that seemed odd or out of place? Did he appear ill? Even if you think you saw this man on June 14th (or after) I want you to call the police. If your tip is nothing the police would sincerely rather have a nothing tip than you keep quiet and a small, but significant lead, get lost.
