In an hour or less, you can look in every box on the circuit. This brute force way is as good and fast as any high-tech way. It's not rocket science. Just start with one box and go on to the next one.

Would this be the same as finding an "open ground"??

Open neutrals are usually caused by failed backstab connections. Since grounding wire are never backstabbed, the open neutral can be a bit harder to find (unless you're using conduit for grounding).
