In all seriousness though , is anything being done? I mean his pic is not being circulated much. Not on fb or in Long Island! Majority of people have never heard of this man! Is there any efforts at all going on or does she know something and that's why there is nothing doing.
So much was happening the first few months and then absolutely NOTHING!
Based on what I've read here alone about not even following up on leads , is anybody looking for this man or someone who has harmed him?
Isn't there more that could be done?

I think it was a facade. Nothing real.
No one is searching. If they are, it is a secret search.
No pictures. Nothing on the local news.
Maybe it was all part of an elaborate scheme planned by a mastermind.

Upon reflection of the info on WS and how this case has played out, it is my belief that he committed suicide. All the facts point to this.

A big part of me agrees with you , but why not take his id? Why do it somewhere he can't be found (as opposed to like a no-tell motel)? Why drag it out and make worse for his kids like this?
She seems eerily calm for someone who thinks her husband is dead somewhere.
Yet she doesn't seem to be looking anywhere ! It's soooo odd. Part of me starting to believe that he is alive , he left her And She knows exactly where he is , but her pride and ego are in the way. Could it be possible she is a scorned wife as opposed to wife of a missing man and in too deep? Crazy I know but the whole situation is !

I agree with Joan, no updates what so ever on missing husband, I would be reposting them every single day instead of bullshitting on FaceBook, I use to help post his flyers and hand out and just don't bother anymore since the wife doesn't even bother...

Sassi--there was little posting recently---but of course thread is still closed--I hear ya on the withdrawl!!!!!
I might go back and re-read the threads....with a large cocktail of course.

What is everyone's sense of what happened??? I debated on suicide even before I heard about the shot gun being missing-----but my first reaction was he left and then went to rehab.

Where he went he didn't need anything. I believe the key lies in whatever discussion was had b/w the couple the night before/that morning. Comments about the daughter in denial, lining up to beat him upon his return (for scaring everyone so much), fb page membership up -'see you really do matter'.
I don't see how you could leave your kids and live with knowing that for this long. The body language in the photos released (even the lousy posed ones) shows love for his little girl.
Suicide only makes sense to the one committing it. Not being found makes sense to protect the kids from that horror.
I think the searches in the woods were for his body. And being eerily calm seems like a level of acceptance at this point.
And the pain of withdrawal, if that was the case, could certainly drive someone to just simply end the pain rather than stay on the hamster wheel of having to sell scrap to get more and more drugs.
Makes sense to me.

@ Kathy you make very good points. Could also explain why no leads were ever investigated and no activity as far as fliers and all of that .
I think she was eerily calm from the beginning! Not just now from her very first interview.
I feel he did leave a note of some sort , whether it was about suicide or just I'm outta here. If she has more insight on the situation, I hope she is at least sharing it with his family. It's just as much as a nightmare for them.
Maybe she helped him disappear? Maybe he is in some sort of trouble ? Maybe the whole thing Is a hoax to keep him safe from someone or something?
However you dice it I think she is lying about a lot! Time always promotes or exposes us. I hope for the sake of his mom and family , truth comes out sooner than later .

Joan---you post at # 608------there is nothing being done on LI---a question was raised about billboards and signage on the LIE--and nothing came of it--it seems that the reason is for RM to remain "missing". Would love to know if Ida has contacted Nancy Grace or Discovery Channel or another network--he is coming on a year missing in June.

But if he did commit suicide in the woods---a shotgun blast would be heard--and subsequent animals scattering---I'd think that given the homeless population in that area a body would have been foundby now.

I think Ida's calmness is due to the fact that she knows where he is and where ever that is, he able to sustain himself (food, clothing, shelter). He had picked up glasses I have read---were they found?

I wont accuse his children b/c they are children--but it is my belief that if interviewed, they can shed alot of light on this--events prior and after.

sidebar to Kathy----good insights--- I hope you are not speaking from experience.

Oh and after thought-----what about Rob's union dues????
Are they current---b/c I am sure the family's health care comes thru the union.

I was wondering about that as well when Ida was talking about her daughter's testing. That is $$$$$$.

@ Carolyn , def no billboard! I have yet to see a flier hanging ...I have a friend who lives blocks away from them and never heard of this! I showed them the fb page .... They were clueless.
IMO not much is being done to find this man. I personally don't think she has contacted any news stations. I'd be curious to know if she even is using a PI!
Interesting point also about the health insurance. You also just made me think, where are the coworker and their wives support on the fb page for her ? Never hear from any of them either!

Wonders me how Ida can afford to live in that big house, insurance, auto loans, mortgage, utility bills, big home tax bills, home insurance, hair done, clothes etc, how the hell does she pay for all of that stuff.
i am sure there has to be a safe in that house and maybe Rob took his half of the leftover stolen money and just took off and started his life again far away with a new name and all, it is sad that he left his kids, but he must have been really depressed, taking those pain killers do change peoples minds, maybe he lost his conscious of his passed.

Not sure of the suicide, no body by now, I think it would be hard if he did suicide to shoot yourself and try to hide your own body after your dead.
Who knows......

Does anyone know what Ida does for a living to pay for above?

Hope his kids, mom and sis get answers soon

There was an interview posted on WS--about August 14 or so---Ida was contacted by a reporter and gave an interview. If anyone has not yet read it, I encourage you to do so.

I have a feeling the next series of posts will be about how they are struggling financially without Rob and how family etc is helping them out. Well, maybe not now LOL
