A botched marijuana deal could be the clue that helps investigators learn the whereabouts of a man missing for more than two weeks.

He's Neal King: 24 years old, 5' 11", about 125 pounds, with green eyes and red hair.

Butte County investigators say King was last seen at 4001 Hildale Avenue in Oroville.

Neighbors said they call it "the pot house" because the overwhelming scent of marijuana permeates the area during the grow season.

King was also trying to purchase 12 acres of land with a Las Vegas man.

King's mother is working with detectives on new leads. She said they are making progress.

The Cort Jones Project in Redding is putting out fliers to help locate Neal King.
