Default Dix Hills Missing Person

Ida Mayer, wife of missing Dix Hills man Robert Mayer, continues to organize friends and family as well as many concerned people whom have never met the Mayers. On Sunday, July 21, a search group met and searched the Deer Park, New York train station and surrounding area looking for clues.

Robert Mayer was reported missing on June 15, after he did not come home from his work as an electrician on the evening of the 14th. This was extremely out of character for him and was an immediate red flag to his wife and 2 children who had plans for Father's Day weekend and a vacation planned for the week of July 7th.


Robert was last seen on June 14 at 2:15 pm, at a scrap yard in West Babylon, NY, where he would visit occasionally to scrap copper from the jobsite he was working at in Brooklyn. From there, nothing is known of his whereabouts, but his
2004 Pontiac GTO was abandoned at the Deer Park LIRR station. His next destination should have been his home in Dix Hills, by car. He doesn't take the train, because he doesn't trust those parking lots, he would actually go to great lengths to avoid parking there.


A Facebook group has been started to provide ideas and support to Rob's family. "Robert Mayer Search Group" is a place where 800 people, many of whom have never met the Mayers, meet to plan searches, create and distribute fliers, or leave words of support. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/131468517059825/)


We ask that anyone who has information on Robert Mayer, no matter how trivial you think it might be, to please call Suffolk County Police at 631-854-8252.

Feel horrible for the family. Can't even imagine not knowing where a family member is. Do you have a pic to post here?

Any new on this man yet? This is very odd that he has not been found yet.

I think a 2nd search party was yesterday. Apparently another Local 3 electrician (from Staten Island but same union) has become missing since a few days ago so there are guesses that these 2 men or more were involved in something (perhaps knowing something they shouldn't have, etc.) and those responsible are trying to keep it quiet. Anybody's guess still.

Anyway, it was only last week that the FB group helped get the story out. Took too long. News12 and more recently Newsday (finally).

I remember seeing this on the news a few days after he went missing. Saw recently that they upped the reward for information.

SCPD still claims (as far as I know anyhow) that they do not believe foul play is involved. That to me indicates that they have reason to believe that he walked out on his family.

There is a pretty extensive thread about this case over on the Websluths forum. I personally believe he walked out although there are others who believe he was the victim or a crime or had some sort of medical emergency. I tend to dismiss those theories on the grounds that he or his body would have been located by now.
