Maybe Rob was in danger of something he knows about and they felt the wife and kids are not in harms way...we will never know until something ever comes forward, wish there was some kind of opening to looking for him, even if it was the internet he could be anywheres...

Why can't it be that Rob just simply left? I think in the beginning Ida was just trying to find him, I believe she knew in her heart that he left her!! Whether she was in denial, angry....she took it too far!!!
I believe the FB page was shut down because she or someone in the family had heard from him!! She got so many people involved that she shut it all down to try & save face.......I do not think that there is a mystery to solve here. He simply wanted out!!

Agree with all of you including Sue, but it has been such a mystery and so many people have tried and helped since last June and would like an ending to this story, that's all, it's the wondering what????? I have never in my life have ever been into a missing case or been so fond of what happen to someone until this one, it's the curiosity about the whole thing and the crazy story and the things that happened over this story in the past year. I'm also wondering why would his wife just shut down the internet when it could have helped find her husband, instead she was so worried about her reputation and what other people were saying, all was said why not just keeping looking and saying prayers, she sounds like a selfish wife to me, so crazy...

Just why do they have a Facebook Page private trying to find Robert is mind Boggeling, i am not a person whom said anything wrong and all I did was help and pray to try and find Rob, not to mention all the flyers I hung and for us to be cut out of all that and all the different stories Ida tells all the news, all DIFFERENT, especially the latest one from Commack Patch, IDA SAYS, he left his wallet,$300 CASH and PHONE on his DRESSER, the last story even by the police it was found in the garage in the drawyers and DIFFERENT DRAWYERS, if someone tells the truth all the time and has the SAME story we may believe her a little more but that is why this story is so messed up and would love to find out the end. Also Ida says she missed him by minutes from her moms to his house, MINUTES, no one saw him in that car but a camera????? Car was nicely parked in a nice view to find it so it does not get damaged or stolen and the car is locked??

Surely, this family can pool together a bit more to make someone coming forward

That was my first instinct.

Then I read and found out so much more.
So many questions. What did he "want to be out of"?

They shut down 3 FB sites!
If you said anything against the wife they banned ya lol


I think his wife has something to do with his disapearence. Since I first heard the story I have felt that she murdered him or got him murdered. Theres a lot of that going around, killing spouse for insurance.

I don't think he was harmed, but whatever it was, it looked very planned, the scrap yard thing, going home and leaving his identity there so no one will know who he is if he was stopped by someone, I also believe he may have changed his look at home the 10 minutes he was there and maybe he had someone drive him to the train station and had a one way ticket to God knows where..Ida being at her moms and knowing that he was going to be home for exactly 10 minutes, you never heard anything from his family members searching or praying for him and the way they lived and Ida's background of money greed, there had to be another plan to collect money, if Rob is missing for about 7 years, Ida has the right to try and collect life insurance money and they can get back together and live happily ever after in another country, house is not for sale, who is paying for that? Also someone mentioned on facebook that Ida had booked the Italy trip the day he went missing? Also someone said he hate flying? Father's day weekend? It's funny how this story has a similar copy from the Richardson guy from Dix Hills, goes with his family on a trip to Montauk in August 2012 and gets up in the morning for a walk and boom, gone into thin air and 10 months later Rob missing from Dix Hills.

Lisa Watson---your post at # 82---good points---The "ten minutes" is a tiny window of time. If it was RM pulling in to the drive in his red car and leaving AND then Ida shows up "ten minutes later"--strange timing.
This is the time of day that school buses would be dropping kids off, kids would be millong about the block, neighbors watching out for their kids. I could even make an assumption that his older model car could be a little noisy and thus attract attention.

Thus beinbg said, the neighbors are very quiet--no one seems to have seen or heard anything.

Linda-- your post at # 88---- I think it was due to no new leads and members (of which I am one) were just re-hashing old info. I thought it was productive, but maybe the powers that be felt otherwise.

Sorry, not trying to be rude.

I appreciate your input and thoughts.

Where's Rob?

This whole case is odd. I don't even get the feeling they are looking for him! It just seems that so much more could be done, starting with a Facebook page and photos that could be shared, not a private group! I feel like he left on his own accord, the whole disappearance is very neat, so to speak. No signs of struggle or anything. And what happened to the car? Is it still impounded? Where is his family pleading for him to be found (his mother , his sister , close friends ) very very odd! Maybe this out of line , but I didn't see a single tear in her interview on pix 11... Sounded like she wa crying but not one tear!
