Addicted to drugs for 16 years? Seemingly able to support his family and a "normal" life. Why leave now?
Possibly a willing participant in the mortgage scam his wife was involved with. She was already disbarred for quite some time and paid the fines (I think). Why now?
If he were leaving, why set the scene like with wallet, cell phone and car?
Did the phone records show who his last calls were to besides his wife?
You don't stay a functional addict forever , it always progresses , or else every addict / alcoholic would choose to stay a functioning member of society! Maybe this time he is in too deep. Maybe he hit his breaking point and it's out of control

facts cleared by LE on "Help us find Robert Mayer" FB page:
Know Facts sheet:
1. Rob was normally home around 3 pm. On Friday 6/14/2013 in the late
afternoon he was not seen at home and was missing from his normal
routine.
2. A quick inspection of the garage where he parked his car turned up his
wallet.
3. The next day it was revealed that about $300 in cash was also found in
the garage.
4. Around 4:45 pm Robís wife began calling Robs sister to see if she had
heard from Rob. It was after 6 pm when Robís sister realized she had
missed several calls and texts and was then contacted on her house
phone by Robís wife.
5. Several calls were made to Robís phone by his wife and sister to see if
he would answer, the phone went straight to voicemail each time.
6. Later that evening Robís sister and Husband went to Robís house to
help his wife try and find him. After another inspection of the garage a
bucket with a large spool of copper wire was found. When this was
pointed out to Robís wife the question was ďwhatís this?Ē Her reply
was: I walked in on him late last night stripping the copper my
ďantennasĒ went up because I knew what that meant.
7. The police were called and a report was filed where Robís wife stated
she was asleep in her bed in the afternoon around the time Rob
usually came home. When she woke up he was not home, she was not
immediately concerned as he could have hit traffic.
8. The next day she reported that she was at her motherís house at the
time he normally would have come home. They went back to the
motherís house after having lunch at the Chinese buffet. They need to
go back there because the mother received a delivery of a new TV that
she needed help setting up.
9. The next day several searches were conducted and his car was located at the Deer Park Railroad Station. It was parked in a spot he liked to park in when he HAD to take the train. Close to the platform, by the
stairs.

From experience in my own life drug users sometimes do remain functioning for years and years without going off the rails. They go to work , do what they have to as long as they can get their drugs. They said he was a pill user not a heroin addict. That is not to say that you have a honky dory homelike drug users have mood swings. And don't like being called out on their activities. And having been involved with one I don't believe the story he was never away at night for a second. I also find it very telling that she lied about her whereabouts when he came home that day. What possible reason could there be for that lie except to cover up something that she knows happened. And again if I am wrong and as you say he snapped and ditched her and his kids. Why is that our business. If he's dead and we can help find out who did it and why that's one thing but if he took off drugs or no he's just another deadbeat dad , and I for one couldn't care less about him or her

Not for anything Lisa , and I don't mean to sound mean but look around. There are these alcoholic homeless guys and drug abusers allover the place who walked out on families , some years ago. If that's the case with this man what makes him any better than any of them if that's the truth the only pity I feel is for his kids. I do not have any sympathy for him at all. And lots of those moms have to be on welfare or work 2 jobs to then support the ditched kids. Apparently not Idas problem so I have no sympathy for her and her bs either

Firstly: Why has she lied that she was sleeping at the time he was supposed to be back from work, when it was confirmed only a week later by neighbors camera that Rob did indeed came home at usual time. To me that clearly means that she knew exact time when Rob was harmed.

Secondly: why did she call Rob's sister only 1 hour and 45 minutes after he was supposed to be home? Why was she panicking, he could be in traffic jam or just late? And at the end of the day why calling his sister?Isn't Ida claiming all of the time that Rob got estranged from his family?

Common Ida, tell the truth once in your life time. You might hate him, but after all he your kids father.

Xheraldina I sure do agree. With you she knows cause she was fed up with him and had him "taken care of" now she seems to be home free apparently plenty of money to enjoy life style without working and no more drug using husband who maybe was using funds to get drugs. Risking getting busted and embarrassing her and kids. And her life goes on

Lol I was thinking the same about the minions, I suppose they don't have much to dispute given her lies are finally being called out!
Sam bee I agree with you about the drug addicts who leave their family etc.... I'm just saying given we know he had an addiction, he prob wasn't very stable and it makes more sense that he would leave as opposed to the happily married perfect family man!
I also find it bizarre that her first thoughts were he was harmed , if my husband was late my first thoughts would be car accident ( god forbid) or something like that , I wouldn't think someone hurt him . That to me shows something shady was def going on

Yup Lisa I agree I would think accident , car broke down , traffic. Something. Whatever happened, this woman has sure shown herself to be a real shady character. My grandma used to say you can't hide your true self forever and now bi by bit her true self is starting to show. It's unravelling maybe soon we will know the answer to what she did or didn't do that day. Poor kids. What a homelike that must've been behind closed doors

I recently came across this post on WS. It might be on to something:

One thing I've learned is to continually check and re-check local police blotters on the days surrounding a missing person's disappearance. Crimes don't happen in a vacuum and often are just one in a series of misdeeds.

For example I recently revisited the Robert Mayer case (missing from Dix Hills) and decided to go through the police blotters for that day. Here's one I came across:

http://www.newsday.com/long-island/n...eist-1...

From this we learn that just about the time RM goes missing a bank was being robbed by a man using a shotgun.

In another article that came out months after RM's disappearance, it is stated that RM's shotgun is missing from his home:

Also, the bank is along the same train line where RM's automobile was left.

Is it connected? Time will most likely tell.

If Robert Mayer planned on robbing a bank and taking off why would he have bothered stopping at the Junk yard for a mere 300 dollars, which he didn't take with him?

Good thinking, mjak. That wouldn't make sense. LE was aware of the bank robbery, and I imagine they looked into it. However, SpngyBob, I get your thinking, and I think it can be helpful to check on what was going on in the surrounding area at the time of a missing person's disappearance. In this case people on Rob's original search page went through many, many hours of scans and did in fact come across the one you did nearly a year ago.

I think everyone here wants Rob to be found. Please share his fliers and continue to spread the word all across the country, perhaps especially up and down the east coast.

Spongy bob that was really clever of you!!! And Jeanne 777 I for one don't care if he is ever, ever found if he just took off. It's not our problem or our business and he is one of many, many people that do the same. Let Ida deal with it if that's the case I am interested if she had him killed and hope justice will prevail eventually other than that or if he was actually harmed by "the Russian mob" to quote Ida , who cares where Robert Mayer is????

Point taken, Sam Bee. But, until he is found or proof of life is determined, no one will know if he is still alive or is now deceased. So, I want to help find him so that his family and close friends at least know either way.

"Curiouser and curiouser" Alice said.

So if she was home sleeping then her car would be on the neighbors security video as well.

Here's the thing. Red car shows up, no people visible?

Her parents live down the block, walking distance.

Let's remember, LE just says cars pulled in. They don't say anyone is seen.
(get my drift?)

Now, also phone is cleared. Let's remember phone is "found" a week later which leaves time to delete history. Phone doesn't surface until neighbor's video comes to light.

I suspect LE knows more than they are revealing now. Is Ida a suspect?

And his gun is missing!
Was it used against him and than disposed to destroy evidence?
I am just speculating, but it is possible.
