I am sorry that Eeyore got away, but PLEASE don't give up. Prayers and vibes your way as well for his safe and happy return. MY GFs cat just returned home after 10 days on the run, so there is hope.
As for your neighbor, if you suspect he has harmed Eeyore, please try to talk to him first and ask him if he has seen the cat without sounding accusatory. (if he is rational, and you feel safe doing this) I would also let someone know where you are going as well. If you don't feel comfortable approaching him, DO NOT go. If you do decide to talk to him and he becomes hostile, leave right away. You also mentioned that he is "that sort of guy". While that may be true, that doesn't neccesarily mean he hurt the cat either. However, if he has threatened or harmed the cat in the past, contact animal control immediately and tell them what is going on.
Thankfully, I've never encountered a sitiation where I suspected a neighbor has harmed a pet of mine, but this is what I would do personally. I'm sure others here will have different approaches of dealing with a scenario such as yours, so take each one and weigh them carefully, then decide on the appropriate action.
Believe me, I despise individuals who harm animals with a passion..these people are the scum of the earth, IMO, but on the same token, I don't want to accuse someone of something they may not have done, either.
