On October 12th, Neil went out after supper. According to his wife, he went to talk with a co-worker who was having marital problems. Subsequent investigation revealed that Neil had gone to the Commercial Hotel in Ayton. Neil then left the hotel with another individual and they met with the co-worker elsewhere. Neil returned to the hotel and left between 1:30 and 1:40 a.m. He was last seen alive at 2 a.m. at a residence on Edmund Street in Ayton.
Neil's 1979 GMC pickup was located the following day near Ayton. While he did not smoke, the ashtray was filled with a number of different brands of cigarette butts. His bank accounts and credit cards have not been accessed since his disappearance. Foul play is strongly suspected. Neil was legally declared dead in 1996.
At the time of his disappearance, Neil was employed at Three-Way Demolition as a demolition worker. He was also employed part-time as a garbage contractor. He was also intending to adopt his stepchildren.
