A very high degree of intelligence in a particular field is sometimes accompanied by a fair degree of thoughlessness or even stupidity in others. They just get so absorbed that the day to day seems trivial, I guess.

Deep River (6 km from the labs).
Enter: 25 Summit Ave, Deep River, Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada in above link. Peaceful looking neighborhood with small kept homes close together. Ruggled terrain outside of town center [4,000], however. Can rotate to see all homes. No one saw anything? It's not remote, the residence. Perhaps left not on foot.
I think that the article means that his brother flew in to take care of things AFTER brother went missing.
