Richard Neales Crisis Fund


So many of you are invested in our story and I wanted to let you know that we have an answer now.

Our father is at rest.

We will announce arrangements as they are made.

Thank you a million times over for the love, encouragement, support, stories, shares, and effort to help us through this. You have no clue how much it has helped this last week when so many questions were left unanswered. Reach out and give some love to your family. Don't wait - make that phone call, mend those bridges, stop over for dinner, hug a little tighter. For me, for my family, for my dad.

My father, Richard Neales, went missing on Sunday, March 18th, at noon. Last seen in Pueblo West, Colorado, at his home on Spaulding Avenue. He left his home in his black 2013 Chrysler 300, silver HD (Harley Davidson) decals towards the front of the back passenger windows and chrome stock wheels, chrome grill and chrome window detail strips. His back and front license plates say COMWEST. He is 55 years old, about 5'9", short gray hair, short gray beard, bright blue eyes, and a giant snake tattoo on his right arm with the snake head on his hand, partially colored in green.

We have had an outpouring of offers asking what we need at this time. We are setting this GoFundMe up to give these folks an option. Our father is a small business owner here in Pueblo West, has been for 14 years, and is the main income in the household. At this moment we are looking for financial help to maintain the things that do not stop, even in a crisis. 

We have been in contact with local and state authorities, and a nationwide Be On the Look Out (BOLO) alert is on the radar of all divisions.

Keep your eyes peeled for his car or him. We have been told not to approach him or try to engage him but to alert the local authorities with his or his vehicle's location so they can step in since this is an actual current missing persons case.

Find the original post on Facebook to help us get photos of him and his vehicle out to the public HERE.

We set this up because we are being inundated with requests to help our family, we in no way are suggesting that you donate. We very much so appreciate any help, however please do not feel obligated to do so in this fashion. 

Thank you so much,
The Neales Family
