Mayer was on his way to his job as a metals trader in Huntington when he disappeared. His family says he useed anti-seizure medication but had no history of mental illness and has never gone missing before.

Mayer spoke to someone from his job at 11:30 a.m. on the day he disappeared. His family says he also called his deceased parents number from his cell phone several times that day.

Mayer’s disappearance sparked a massive search by thousands of volunteers from many Jewish organizations.

Mayer’s body was located in a heavily wooded area in Riverhead, NY. The funeral will be held Monday October 18th at 11:30am at Sinai Chapels in Queens.

Thanks to the 100's of volunteers that went out to search, Im not going to mention people by name but heck some of the names you mentioned didn't do anything for the search except stand around in the parking lot.

What's wrong with you?

This terrible tragedy befalls the family and the community and you're only afraid someone might get credit for searching when they "only stood around in the parking lot"? So what? What if they do?

Your priorities are very screwed up.

These people in the parking lot are co-ordinators, which is necessary in such a situation. I don't think they were sitting around twittling their thumbs.

Have you stopped to think that some of those standing around were up a whole night making sure things run smoothly. Not everything is the way you see it, and your comment is very hurtful for those involved.

Fine everyone wants their kavod. From reading these blogs one might get the impression that people volunteer for their egos. If so, that's the wrong reason. There is a dead man here. What were the circumstances, there are no details in the story.
