    Arthur Neal Jr. was last seen on Dec. 20 at his home in the 17200 block of Trinity, police said.

    Detroit police spokesman Officer Adam Madera said Neal's family said he had won the lottery a day earlier. Madera said police have not been able to confirm whether Neal collected any winnings.

    Neal's worried granddaughter, Lawanda Marshall, said they had become concerned after he failed to show up for Christmas, as he would not have missed Christmas with his family.
    According to his relatives, Neal had recently won $20,000 in a lottery game, but had no plans to leave town.
    Marshall said that the information about his lottery win was widely publicized and his family think this could be the reason he has vanished into thin air.
    Marshall said: 'It bothers me greatly because I don't think that's the type of information that should have seeped out – if that was the case – especially that neighborhood in which he was staying and reside.'
    Neal's family said they went to his house to check on him and found his home in disarray and a door left ajar which raised their suspicions further.

    At 86 years old, and with the car missing as well, I would not be surprised if he became lost and confused while driving. Hopefully police thru out the state are keeping an eye out for him. At that age, I would doubt he would have a cell phone ( although I guess it is possible ) and may not remember phone numbers to call for help. Sadly it has been a while now... but the roads have been dry and snow free.
    It is not terribly unusual to hear reports of seniors becoming confused and being found several states away..
    At least that would be the best case scenario..

    I hope he just went on a nice vacation but it doesn't sound like it with the door of his house ajar and his house messed up and puppy missing. I hope he will be found safe real soon.

    it’s unknown if the winning lottery ticket was a motive in Neal’s disappearance.

    “The family said he won but we haven’t been able to confirm through the Michigan Lottery that there was a ticket,” polioce said. “Nobody has cashed in a winning $20,000 ticket as far as we can determine.”
