On (Electoral roll) there is a 2003 entry for a David J Neil in Birmingham B9. The listing is dated 2003. A male and female with the same surname are also in the household

When was he 'last known' to be in the Northfields area?

Just a small point, in case you find it matters - it's Northfield, without an 's'!
There is a D. Neil listed in B31 on BT online, not sure if of any interest as impossible to say how old the entry is.
