Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Neyenesch was last seen in the vicinity of Kettner Avenue and Laurel Street in San Diego, California on June 2, 1983. He has never been heard from again. His car later turned up at the Cabarillo Marina, where he kept a 30-foot yacht. The boat was missing.
An extensive search turned up no indication of Neyenesch and his boat was never located either. He was having personal problems at the time of his disappearance; he was going through a divorce, and he had been fired from his family business, Neyenesch Printers, the year before.
It's unclear whether Neyenesch suffered an accident at sea or simply walked out of his life, but many of his loved ones believe he left of his own accord. There were possible sightings of him in the Pacific Northwest and in the Mission Valley area of California in the years following his disappearance, but nothing could be confirmed.
He has since been declared legally dead, but his case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
