Man, 86, Missing After Winning Lottery Game

DETROIT (AP) – Police say an 86-year-old Detroit man who recently won a lottery game hasn’t been seen by relatives in more than a week.

Arthur Neal Jr. drives a 1998 Cadillac DeVille with license plate BMZ 7786. He’s black, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 160 pounds with a full beard and mustache. Relatives say it’s unusual for him to go this long without any contact.

Neal was last seen at his home on Dec. 20. A granddaughter, Lawanda Marshall, says he wouldn’t have missed Christmas with his family. She says he recently won approximately $20,000 in a lottery game but wouldn’t suddenly leave town because of it.

Marshall says Neal still does masonry work despite his age.

Anyone with information can call police at (313) 596-5640.
