Its generally accepted that Neanderthals went extinct at the end of the last ice age around 30 thousand years ago.

Here is some good info you might find useful(:

WHO: An extinct human species (Homo neanderthalensis) or subspecies (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis)
What: An individual belonging to this species or subspecies. Neanderthal adults stood about 5 feet 4 inches (165 centimeters) tall. They had robustly built bones and muscular bodies. Neanderthal skulls were large and differed from those of modern people by having a large, projecting face; a low, inclined forehead; and a brow ridge, a raised strip of bone across the lower forehead. The Neanderthal jaw also lacked a chin. They survived on the environment around them; they made tools that helped them make clothing, shelters and hunt game.
WHEN: According to scientific research, they were to exist during the late Pleistocene Epoch.
WHERE: Evidence shows that they resided throughout most of Europe and parts of Asia and northern Africa.
WHY: Humans have survived existence for thousands of years, why we are here we may never know-but we can be assured that our specimen has only made it this long because of our initiative to explore and adapt as human beings.

The Neanderthals live way before we knew time. Like Lucy. People were apes back then.
