Charlotte - I agree with you , I found a lot of the newer facts to be even more unsettling.
Somebody deleted the history of the phone, Ida lied to cops about her where abouts, etc ...
My biggest question now is WHY did she originally say she was home?(Not that I think she had anything to do with him disappearing ), but right then and there it shows her character and her ability to lie even when her husbands safety is in question!
Also I am wondering who his texts/calls were to At 4 am. I think he planned this..... It seems he tried to cover all tracks and did it well!
She has something to hide for sure, but I'm thinking that it's more along the lines of maybe he threatened to leave her ,
etc....
And clearly Italy was a lie also since it's stated he was afraid to fly....
It seems his family knows everything about him and their truths would ruin her image. Maybe that is why she is now estranged from them!
Kudos to them for opening up and sharing details ( even the ugly ) to help bring their brother home!!

Excellent job, Tom (and family)
Kudos to all of you for your strength and determination.

About the cell phone content being deleted-didn't Ida insist that Robert was not a techy kind of guy? Was he techy enough to know how to delete content? Just a thought.

So was she sleeping at the time Rob got back or was she at her mother's?
How far is her mother's house from her own house so that she can hear the car????

"Ida Mayer told PIX 11 she thought she heard her husbandís car arriving home shortly before 3 pm last June 14th, when she was down the block at her motherís house. But when she got home, she didnít find Robert Mayerís car in the garage. She did find a lot of other personal items, though."

So there are even more lies that Ida told and I for one can't think of a good reason to lie to police about whereabouts when he came home , unless she had something to do with his disappearance. I have always thought she ad him harmed. But his family seems to think he took off and I get that they want an answer I just think for everyone else like all the posters , that if that turns out to be the truth about this situation then he is real piece of dirt to do that to his kids and mother. It's over a year. And no word. And he apparently wasn't a tota loss drug user as he was working every day in a responsible position. Maybe he ran away with a pregnant girlfriend. But if so contact your kids already and your mom and get a freaking divorce!!!!! And if he's dead , here's hoping law enf figures out soon what happened and arrests the loving wife!

Lots of photos of vacations which appear to be cruises or carribbean. Not so many leave from ny. Seems he did fly and law enf can prob check if trip to Italy was actually booked or not. Maybe he got illegal passport with new name and went to Italy. She had business dealings there , I had read

Cruises depart from NY, NJ and other ports that can be reached by car.

I have repeatedly wondered why Ida is estranged from Rob's family. As I would think they would share the same heartbreak of Rob being missing and the same goal to find him.

I think they have the same goal , but sadly she isn't willing to go to the same lengths .... I'd imagine all the lies and inconsistencies and policing of info would make his family question her and she doesn't seem to want to divulge any negative info about him or their relationship, even if it could be helpful to finding him. It's very sad all the way around

If he is alive and left for his own reasons , it is apparent he wants to remain gone and not in contact with any family members. And is going along living his life the way he chooses. Except for his immediate family, I don't get why it is anyone else business to look for him, to out him so to speak. Not our business. People walk out on their spouses and kids every day. If that is the truth that makes him not so nice and not our business And maybe if that's the truth that he is not so nice to do such a thing, it explains a bit why he is with her, who surely doesn't seem to be so nice at all, what with her past , and all the lies. Again, I am of opinion she had him disposed of. But if it turns out he just split, who. Cares !!!!

If she did have something to do with it, why wouldn't she just come clean about his drug addiction and what not to make it seem he was unstable and left on his own ? To throw people off so to speak ? Instead she painted a picture that all was perfect and something " happened" to him. Wouldn't she rather people think he walked out? I feel like she is trying to make everybody think he didn't leave!

Lisa, I thought maybe the reason was if you paint him as a bad guy with bad habits it shows you could be fed up , angry,like at money being used for drugs etc and that there was a motive. When she paints the picture of the perfect marriage vacation planned, never been apart for an evening etc. Etc. There's no reason why she would harm her perfect husband and ruin her perfect marriage. None!!! Now all the dirt is coming out little by little. Drugs cost money , cause personality changes when they crash or whe. They can't get more when they need it users will tie Yor jewelry , the mortgage money, college money to obtain drugs. Lots of reasons to be very a gry and have a motive to harm him and when you have a wife nagging u to stop the drugs and trying to control your behavior , though she may be right, it's very easy and appealing to seek the company IRS el e with like habits. Another reason to be furious and have motive to harm him I may be wrong but I still think she told her connections and had him removed

Wow Sam , never thought of it like that. All good points!
In reality , from the very beginning ALL info was from Ida and Ida only. Now his family is finally setting some things straight ( and differently).
I wonder if something was found in the car, really how would we know? Ida certainly isn't going to make that public ! She neglected to come clean with a lot of important facts in my opinion .
Also, his mom stated he seemed withdrawn, depressed and had a headache, I wonder if maybe he had some kind of health issue ,( like a brain tumor god forbid) that is making him act out of character .( far fetched I know)

Not to make light of this situation,but it sure seems that wife could give anyone a headache. "45" minute phone call when he's at work and according to her she's talking and he's going uhhuh while she's supposedly planning a BBQ and an international flight for her drug using hubby who doesn't like to fly. And just an aside, as a mom wouldn't u be scared to death that with your kids along he might get caught with drugs on him on the trip or of erratic behavior on trip with your kids there. More reasons why I think it was all made up for covering her tracks and that she had him harmed. Or maybe I am totally wrong and he wanted to get away from her so bad that he even gave up his kids

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?

Curious I don't think he left at all. I think she had someone wait in the garage that he knew who lured him into going with them and that he was killed and disposed of far away I agree he was involved in her schemes, but she's the lawyer and probably instigated his participation. Maybe he was tired of the bs and liked doing drugs and was going to leave her and expose their not perfect life to everyone. Maybe she told her daddy or uncle and they took care of the problem for her

If I remember correctly it was stated that she called him that morning for the long chat. I saw mention of calls at 4 am that someone said was mentioned on family fb page idont have fb. Does anyone know who those calls were to or from? A girlfriend ? A drug dealer? Someone asking to meet in garage at certain time that afternoon???
