    CA - John Scialabba, 23, Mountain View, 26 Feb 2001

    I just wondered if John Robert Scialabba has been mentioned? He was listed as taller than 'lyle' BUT i think they look alike and he has an appendix scar...

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/4705dmca.html

    He probs has been ruled out but he's not on ruleouts on namus.http://www.missingin.org/images/missing/NAT_25517_1.jpg
    I don't claim to be anything i'm not, a novice with an interest willing to help. God bless the missing and their families waiting for answers.

    I was just looking at him today and thought he really reminded me of Lyle. There is no DNA sample yet available for John Scialabba.

    WOW! Look at this photo of Scialabba. He is very tanned here, but I think his features are remarkably similar. And a lot of the specifics match up. http://www.missingin.org/reg9763/joh..._scialabba.htm

    Scialabba isn't listed in NAMUS and there really isn't much on him out there. I read something that is is believed he jumped from a bridge, and other reports that he told his sister he needed some time alone. There are no witness reports of him actually entering the water.

    Does anyone have any more info on the scialabba case? I need better photos, but the resemblance is remarkable.

    This isn't necessarily a "better" photo but shows him from a slightly different angle. I think he looks less like "Lyle" in this one.

    Yeah I agree, that photo doesn't look like Lyle at all. It's so funny how angles in photos matter so much. Because our brain so badly wants to make a match, you can start to see things that aren't there.

    So true! That's why I don't trust myself to make UID matches. I usually only see similarities!

    I did submit this as a possible match to NAMUS but I never heard back, probably because JRS doesn't have DNA in the system it looks like.

    Why does John Robert Scialabba not come up when I search for him under missing persons of California on the California DOJ website?

    When will we hear back if JRS is excluded (or is actually Lyle)? I think there are too many eerie similarities between these two to overlook. Hasn't it been a year since he was submitted??

    I agree. There has got to be a faster way to get an answer. I'm new to this site so just learning but can we forward info directly to the detective working the John Scialabba case? I'm from the SF Bay area so his home location is not far from me. I'd love to help any way I can to confirm or eliminate John.

    They may be able to answer this question on Reddit. There is a subreddit for Lyle where you'll get a faster response. I've tried to sign up on reddit, but have never been able to create a username for some reason. The mods there seem much more interested than on websluths.
