Missing Great Neck man's family wants search to focus on finding car

The family of Steven M. Mayer is circulating this flier.

The family of a missing Great Neck who is believed to be in the Riverhead area is hoping to redirect the search to finding the man's car, since the car would be easier to find and could then give clues to his whereabouts.

That car is a silver 2010 Nissan Sentra four-door sedan, and its license plate is EWN-4035.

Steven  M. Mayer, 65, of Great Neck was last seen at about 7:30 a.m. on Monday morning. On Monday afternoon, he made a cell phone call to his deceased parents number, which is no longer operational, and that call came from a  cell tower in Riverhead, his family said.

He made several calls to numbers that either weren't operational or were unanswered and all were from the Riverhead area, his son Jason Mayer said Friday. It is believed that the older Mr. Mayer's cell phone battery has since died.

Jason  Mayer said there had been information since Monday that suggested his father may have been on western Long Island, but that information has since been discounted and the search party is once again concentrating on the Riverhead area.

"We've been highlighting the search for him, but we want to highlight the search for his car, because a car is hard to lose," Jason said.

Mr. Mayer is described as being 5-foot,  8-inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He is white, has brown hair and glasses and was last seen at 40 Radnor Road in Great Neck, in Nassau County on Monday at 11:30 a.m.

It is not known what he was wearing.

Mr.  Mayer works as a metals trader in Huntington and would not have been in  the Riverhead area, which is why family members believe he may have had  a seizure or some type of sudden health problem that caused him to be lost or disoriented.

Volunteers have been combing the area looking for Mr. Mayer and a police helicopter also has assisted.

Anyone with information that might help the search is urged to call either 1-516-847-5005, or call police at 911.
