    NY - New York City, BlkMale UP5977, 35-45, in Hudson River, Sep'01

    Thoughts everyone? The UID was found in the Hudson River the same day Mr. Lyons went missing. The foreheads on the two really stand out with the same unusual bumpiness. Good on demographics. Good facial similarity. This is another one that seems way too simple.

    Ernest Lyons:

    Really good match. You should report this. Scar on left knee, this must be him.

    I hadn't even noticed the knee thing! I really have to wonder if the cases aren't being updated or something.

    Wow! How has this gone nearly ten years unmatched? The proximity to 9-11 I supposed. This is almost certainly the same guy. Hope so for the sake of his family.

    Think you'll probably learn you've made a match that will bring this man's family long-awaited closure.

    Well, I see the NamUs file was modified in June of 2010, so I'm going to say he's still unidentified.

    Yeah, that's him. They have the same vertical scar above the right (viewer's left) corner of the mouth.

    Dang, Snuf. You're on a roll.

    Their foreheads are a match. Each lump and bump are on both. The scar on the left knee, same again. The demographics are spot on. I keep trying to talk myself out of this potential match- it seems hard to imagine this match hasn't been looked into before.

    They also have the same side-by side blemishes on the right (viewer's left) cheekbone.

    Wow, you've made two very strong matches in two days! I think this will turn out to be the same person and I also think marycarney was correct; the NYPD was most likely forced to set aside this case while they dealt with the recovery mission at the WTC.

    I agree with tatertot. I think you'll find this is a match Snufamonbobball. I'd definatetly submit if you haven't already.

    Mr. Lyons has been submitted. I spoke with a detective regarding him, and this is still an open case, but hopefully not for much longer.
