NEAH (nē'a, Heb. hanē‘âh). A town given by lot to the tribe of Zebulun (Josh.19.13), possibly the same as the “Neiel” of Josh.19.27. Its exact location is unknown.

NEAH nē’ ə (הַנֵּעָֽה). A town on the border of Zebulun (Josh 19:13). Site unknown.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A town in the lot of Zebulun (Jos 19:13), mentioned along with Gath-hepher and Rimmon. It is possibly identical with "Neiel" (Jos 19:27). No name resembling either of these has yet been recovered, although the district in which the place must be sought is pretty definitely indicated. It may probably have lain to the North of Rimmon (Rummaneh), about 4 miles Northeast of Seffuriyeh.
