3 way pilot light no neutral wire

Newbie

I am looking to install a 5638-2W or 5639-2W in place of the existing 3 way switch that controls my garage lights from inside the house, so that I can see if someone has left the garage lights on without actually having to go out there and look.  Trouble is, with the way that the 3-way was wired, there is no neutral line where I want the pilot to be.  Will it work to just hook the pilot to a good ground, or do I HAVE to run a neutral line there?

 

Any help/info would be appreciated, thanks!
