If anyone can't find Rex after sending him to the lucky 38 he will be in the kings in Freeside, once you enter there however he will run to the lucky 38, if you follow him you can enter the strip and watch him go in, great. However once you leave the strip you will not be able to re enter as it will say its locked. I lost a whole days gameplay. If you see him enter the casino, follow him, recruit him then send him to freeside, problem solved...So far i hope.
i had a similar problem with rex, i was entering the legion camp and rex didnt take the boat over with me, so when i went to enter caesars tent the guard kept giving me the message "you must be alone to enter caesars tent" so after about 30 minutes of trying to find Rex and not being able to leave the legion encampment until after i talk to caesar i had to load my game from 2 levels lowers.
this time i told rex to goto the lucky 38, finished my caesar mission, and then went to go get my trusty rex back, and to my great disapointment rex is no where to be found in the world :(

I had the same problem with both Lily and Rex.I was in H.Valley kicking BoSSs asses and after leaving for Freeside they both went AWOL. I do a few missions and return to H.Valley for more goodies and Lily was right back there! I go to the 38 and Rex is right there waiting for me and I go somewheres else and poof! No sign of either.Another quality product from Bethesda ? Or a hell of a sense of humor from Bethesda ? I think Bethesda should fire all of their testers if they greenlighted the game saying it was fine or go Activision on Infinity Ward with Bethesda's Obsidian people and any/everyone else who had a hand in this debacle! You hear me Bethesda!!!?
Apparently the game testers didn't find any glitches when they played..I find that hard to believe considering almost everyone has found at least one. Didn't know you could shoot a guard for the strip key....wish i had of known, lost alot of gameplay...
This is just the reason why I always go to the Presidential Suite in the Lucky 38 first before telling any of my companions to go there. Seems to work for me so far. Have Boone, Arcade Gannon, Veronica and ED-E and so far they've all stayed at the Lucky 38 when I went on to do other stuff.
Oh well, I'm a control freak, I don't mind holding their hands all the way to the Hideout.
