    News stories about the Beige 68 Ford Station Wagon

    Here are some news stories published in the Washington Post Newspaper in April 1975 concerning the reported sighting of a 1968 Beige or Tan Ford Station Wagon.

    Keep in mind that these stories were written based on police press conferences during the time of the initial investigation, just two weeks after the girls disappeared.

    These three articles describe the car only as a 1968 beige Ford station wagon, and discuss the search by police for the Maryland tag DMT-6xx. The tags would have been white with three red letters, a space and then three red numbers.

    The witness is described in the first article as a "corporation executive" and in the third article as "an IBM employee".

    Note: The girls were ages 12 and 10 when they went missing on 25 March 1975. The ages stated for the girls as 13 and 11 in these articles were because their birthdays had occurred at the end of March just days after they went missing.

    Lyon Sisters Possibly Seen in Auto
    By Donald P. Baker
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Tuesday, 8 April 1975 Page A1

    A report by a Prince William County man that he saw two young girls bound and gagged in teh rear of a moving station wagon early yesterday in Manassas "raised some optimism" that the missing Lyon sisters are alive, Montgomery County Police said last night.

    Area police said last night said they were looking for a beige 1968 Ford station wagon with 1975 Maryland tags, the first four digits of which, police said, are DMT-6. The car's driver was described as resembling a man being sought for questioning in the Lyon case. The witness who saw the car said the last two numbers on the license plate were obscured because the tag was bent, police said.

    The search was somewhat hampered, police said, because Maryland motor vehicle records for 1975 tags - the first new ones issued in five years - have not yet been collated and placed on a computer. As a result, police were required to search records by hand for the 100 different possible combinations of numbers.

    (Continued on page A 4) 2 Lyon Girls Believed Seen in Auto in Virginia


    Last night police reported that none of about a dozen station wagons issued license tags starting DMT-6 could have been the one spotted in Manassas.

    Police then began a check expected to take all night, to determine whether any DMT-6 license plates have been stolen.

    The reported sighting of the two girls occurred at 7:30 a.m. at the corner of Grant and Center Streets in Manassas by a man identified by Montgomery police only as a "reliable citizen, a corporation executive". Montgomery police said the witness told them he saw one girl raise her head above the window in the rear, and a second girl on the floor. Police said the witness said both girls were tied.

    Police said that when the witness tried to get a better look, the driver spotted him and sped off, through a red light, headed west on Rte. 244 toward Interstate 66.

    Cpl. Phil Caswell of the Montgomery County police, said the witness was interviewed at juvenile aid headquarters in Wheaton for several hours yesterday afternoon and that detectives were convinced that "what he saw was true. The validity of the sighting checking out positively."
    "What we don't know," added Caswell, "is whether the girls he saw were the Lyon sisters."

    Capt. Gabriel LeMastra, chief of the Montgomery police juvenile division, said the girls' parents, John and Mary Lyon of xxxx Plyers Mill Rd., Kensington, were notified by police that "it's a possibility" that the report meant that their daughters were alive.

    Sheila Mary Lyon, 13, and her sister, Katherine Mary, 11, last were seen two weeks ago today, at the Wheaton Plaza shopping center, one-half mile from their home. They were last seen talking to a man with a tape recorder in a briefcase who was described as well-dressed, white, about 50, with gray and black hair.

    The driver of the car seen in Manassas yesterday resembled that description, police said.

    Since the girls' disappearance, police have checked out literally thousands of reports that the man or the girls, or both, were sighted at various locations throughout the metropolitan area. Police said last night that yesterday's report was "the most hopeful yet."

    The check of the license plate numbers was complicated by the fact that Maryland's tag numbers are not distributed on a geographic basis, so the plates in question "could be registered in Cumberland or Hagerstown or Baltimore," LeMastra said.

    Cpl. Caswell, a public affairs officer, said "good leads" were being checked by personal visits to the homes of vehicle owners throughout the state.

    Since the girls disappearance March 25, police have concentrated on tracking down known sex offenders and men reported seen interviewing young girls on tape recorders at several area shopping centers. There has been no effort by a kidnapper to collect a ransom, police said, and they consider very remote the possibility that the girls ran away from home.

    No New Solid Leads Seen in Lyon Search
    Washington Post Page A 16
    Wednesday, April, 9, 1975

    The Search for the missing Lyon sisters entered its third week last night with Montgomery County police reporting no new solid leads. The girls, Sheila, 13, and Katherine, 11, were last seen March 25 at the Wheaton Plaza shopping center, about half a mile from their home in Kensington.

    A report that the girls were seen, bound and gagged, in the back seat of a 1968 biege Ford station wagon in Manassas early Monday touched off thousands of tips, including sightings throughout the metropolitan area.

    Police said last night that they had found neither the car nor the license tag, reported as a 1975 Maryland plate reading at least DMT-6.

    Police Widen Search for 2 Md. Girls
    Washington Post Page C-2-4
    Thursday, April 10, 1975

    Montgomery County police continued with what detective Les Cook called "old fashioned police work" yesterday in the search for the missing Lyon sisters.

    There have been no new sightings of the girls, Sheila, 13, and Katherine, 11, since an IBM employee told police he saw two girls bound and gagged in a car at a Manassas intersection at 7:30 a.m. Monday.

    The man told Prince William County police that the girls were in the back seat of a 1968 beige Ford station wagon bearing a 1975 Maryland license tag with the beginning prefix DMT-6. The last two numbers were obscured because the plate was bent, the man said.

    Montgomery County police said last night that they had nearly completed the check of all possible Maryland plates with that sequence of letters and were beginning to check with other states, including North Carolina, Florida, and Colorado which have similarly colored red and white plates using combinations of three letters and thee numbers.

    The girls, daughters of WMAL radio announcer John Lyon and his wife, Mary, were last seen March 25 at the Wheaton Plaza Shopping Center, about half a mile from their home in Kensington.

    Lead Found To Missing Lyon Girls; N.C. Convict Linked To Wheaton Plaza

    Washington Post
    Friday, March 13, 1987

    A sex crime investigation that began last year in rural Southwest Virginia led Montgomery County police yesterday to announce their "most promising lead" in the county's longest-running police investigation-the unsolved 1975 disappearance of the Lyon sisters.

    The Lyons, daughters of prominent radio disc jockey John Lyon of WMAL, were last seen March 25, 1975, after walking from their Kensington home to the Wheaton Plaza shopping center to look at Easter exhibits and have lunch. They never returned.

    Police said yesterday that the disappearance of 12-year-old Sheila Lyon and her 10-year-old sister Katherine may be linked to a Virginia man, now in custody in North Carolina,

    June 5, 1990 Article about John Lyon...

    WMAL Fires John Lyon

    The Washington Post
    Article date: June 5, 1990
    Author: Jeffrey Yorke


    John Lyon's 22-year career at personality-oriented middle-of-the-road WMAL-AM (630) came to an abrupt end following his 3 p.m. sign-off Friday, and so may have the station's last-of-a-kind personality-driven, middle-of-the-road format. Two talk shows, including that of nationally syndicated conservative host Rush Limbaugh, will replace Lyon in the midday slot.

    Program Director Michael Neff said Lyon's firing and the added talk programming were "a natural part of WMAL's continuing evolution into an issue-oriented, topic-driven radio." Neff said that "our future as an AM radio leader is going to be in issue-oriented information programs," but he refused to describe WMAL solely as

    2008 Washington Post Article by Chris Core (WMAL)

    Chris Core, former host of WMAL's "The Chris Core Show," is now a daily commentator on WTOP (103.5 FM) and a show host on XM Radio's POTUS '08 (Channel 130).

    Chris began his job with WMAL (AM) radio in February 1975, only a month before the disappearance of Sheila and Katherine LYON. They were the daughters of John Lyon, who was a radio announcer at WMAL, and whom Chris Core got to know well. Chris is very familiar with the Lyon Sisters' case on a very personal level and has been interviewed on the subject in the past.

    This 2008 Article by Chris Core appeared in the Washington Post. Although he does not mention John Lyon or his missing daughters, he does speak about the history of and the changes to WMAL over the past decades.

    John Lyon was fired from WMAL in 1990 and replaced by the Rush Limbaugh syndicated show. In 2008, Chris Core was fired for similar reasons regarding changes in WMAL radio programming.

    The Real Scoop on Why I Lost My Show
    By Chris Core
    Sunday, May 25, 2008

    On Friday, Feb. 29, (2008) I walked out of the studio at WMAL radio much as I had for the past 33 years, on a post-show high. I had just finished a passionate discussion on race relations with my audience. The phones had been jammed for the past two hours and were still ringing when I signed off. Now my producer said that the boss wanted to see me. Not an unusual occurrence, but as soon as I entered his office and saw his face, I knew that this wasn't going to be an ordinary conversation.

    Chris Berry, the general manager, told me that the parent company of WMAL, Citadel Broadcasting, had ordered nationwide cutbacks. Five people at WMAL, including the news director, the national sales manager and me, had to be terminated immediately, as did the entire on-air staff of our sister station WJZW. I was shocked at the suddenness with which this happened. But I wasn't totally surprised. I'd kind of seen it coming.

    The business model for radio, like all other media today, has changed and become more competitive over the years. Just as cable diluted the television market, the rise of FM and eventually satellite radio has increased listeners' choices. Add the Internet to the mix, and radio stations have to either evolve from their traditional ways or wither. WMAL made some costly choices over the years.

    When I joined it in February 1975, it was a full-service station at its peak. The show I first worked on as a news and sports reporter, "Harden and Weaver," had a 25 share, meaning that one-fourth of the D.C. area population listened to it. Thirty-three years later, the WMAL morning show, the terrific "Grandy and Andy," is attracting a 3.6 share and the top-rated station a 9.1. To be fair, there are now many more stations on the air for listeners to choose from. Double-digit shares are a thing of the past. Still, for the three decades I was at WMAL, I saw a steady decline in audience.

    Part of the problem was signal. WMAL rose to prominence for two reasons: the strength of its local personalities and its great AM signal, which could be heard clearly in all parts of the Washington metropolitan area. FM radio at that time was merely an afterthought. Not knowing what to do with it, WTOP sold its FM signal (now WHUR) to Howard University for exactly $1. WMAL-FM (now Mix 107.3) filled air time with recorded jazz programs. But as the area kept growing, broadcasters knew that they had to come up with a way to get their signals to the outer suburbs....

    (Much more at link below.)

    ... I left WMAL with no bitterness, honestly. I had a great run. But I'm just a small example of what's happening to people all over the country as our economy changes. Good companies that think beyond today's bottom line and plan for the future will survive. The cut-costs-at-all costs companies will not. The free market works. But smart capitalism is a Core value.

    Baltimore Sun article on TRM 4 April 1975

    This Associated Press (AP) article was printed in the Baltimore Sun on Saturday, 4 April 1975.

    Note that they quote heavily from a Washington Star article about the interview with "Jimmy" which appeared the day before.

    Accompanying this article, on page C-18 of the Sun, was the second TRM sketch. It was marked "PFC D. Morton" and "JAB #2". It retained the same date as the origional sketch which was 28 March 1975, and only a few parts of the origional sketch appear to have been altered - mostly around the chin and mouth.

    The caption under the sketch reads: "New police drawing of man last seen with girls."

    Note that in this article, the girls ages are stated as 13 and 11, because their birthdays had just passed.

    Also, note that the reference about four women calling police on "Wednesday night" meant that they had seen the origional sketch in newspapers and TV and had come forward before the Washington Star interview with "Jimmy" was published.


    The article text:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Police make new composite in search for Lyon sisters

    Kensington, Md. (AP)

    - Montgomery County police said yesterday they have prepared a new compsite drawing of a man with a tape recorder being sought in connection with the search for the missing Lyon sisters.

    Sheila Lyon, 13, and her sister, Katherine, 11, have been missing for nine days. They were last seen at the Wheaton Plaza shopping center.

    PFC Davis Morton, a robbery squad detective who prepares composites, said four women called police Wednesday night and said they recognized the man in the sketch. They offered to help prepare a new composite.

    "I showed the composite to the four women separately and it seemed to be basically the guy they had seen," he said. "They suggested a few minor changes .... Sometimes you're close and sometimes you're way off but I feel better about this one because of the other witnesses."

    The origional sketch was drawn from a description supplied by a 13-year-old boy, a friend of the Lyon girls. The boy's name has not been made public at the request of his parents who say they fear retaliation. The Washington Star published an interview with the boy yesterday, referring to him only as Jimmy, which is not his real name.

    "It was about 1 or 2 o'clock" Jimmy said. "I was out with a friend. We were down near ... um ... Peoples Drug Store and the Orange Bowl Pizza carryout and we saw the two girls talking to a man with a tape recorder."

    "I heard the man ask one question; 'Are any of you two involved in sports?'

    "And the... um ... 30 seconds later I looked back. He was walking away toward Ward's (Montgomery Ward's) and the girls were walking the other way toward the fountain," he said.

    Jimmy said when he first saw the man he thought he looked like a reporter and "we were joking around that maybe we should go over there and get him to interview us."

    "The man was holding a microphone in his hand between the girls and asking questions," he said. "He had a tan briefcase on the ground. It was one of those hard ones that sat up."

    Jimmy said the tape recorder was next to the man, outside the briefcase.
    He said the man was well dressed in a brown suit and that he had never seen him before or since.

    News report on sighting on Drumm Ave, near Devin

    From the Washington Post Thursday 17 April 1975 Page C-1

    ----------------------------------
    Police Give New Data on Lyon Sisters

    By Alice Bonner
    Washington Post Staff Writer

    Montgomery County Police reported yesterday that the missing Lyon Sisters were seen at 2:30 p.m.or later on March 25, walking in the general direction of their Kensington home. Police previously said the girls had been last seen the same day at 1 p.m. at Wheaton Plaza Shopping center.

    Police information officer Phillip Caswell said the later sighting of the girls is important because "it leads us to believe they weren"t taken from the shopping center as might originally have been suspected."

    Although police said the information came last week from a teen-aged friend of 13-year-old Sheila Lyon, Caswell said they withheld it until yesterday in order to verify its reliability.

    The youth, police said, told them he was riding with one other person in a car going west on Drumm Avenue near the shopping center when he saw the girls, Sheila and her sister Katherine, 11, also walking west between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. on March 25, the day they were last seen.

    Drumm Avenue west-bound leads away from the shopping center. Police said the friend saw the girls near Devin Street, about three blocks from the shopping center and about a half a mile from their home at xxxx Plyers Mill Rd. He told police the girls were alone and "just walking normally along the roadway". The youth was identified only as "over 15 years old."

    The witness did not come forward sooner, Caswell said, because reports that the girls had been seen in that area later in the evening by another person made him believe his information was insignificant, according to police. Police have since virtually discounted that report.

    Caswell said the new tip has not sparked any further searches of the plaza area, because that section was repeatedly searched after the girls' disappearance. Police said they have, however, asked residents of the area to check storage sheds, boats and other enclousures for evidence that the Lyon sisters might have been there .

    Caswell said the new information does not rule out continued investigation of reports that a man carrying a tape recorder was seen talking to the girls at the shopping center about 1 p.m. that day, or reports last week that two girls were seen bound and gagged in the back of a moving station wagon near Manassas, Va.

    Caswell said detectives are "95 per cent sure" that this latest witness saw the girls. Police seem to give less credibility to another youth's earlier report that he saw them at about 7:30 p.m. that evening at an intersection near the plaza.

    Gross National Product blue grass band...

    Forty years ago, in 1971, John Lyon (father of Sheila and Katherine) started a blue grass band which has been in continuous operation.

    Here are some links to Gross National Product bluegrass band with photos of John Lyon and the band's other members throughout the years:

    I started this "News Reports, Articles, and Links" thread in 2007 after the Lyon Sisters' Case became a Websleuths featured topic. The origional thread is the long one started simply as a thread in the Cold Case section by jollegirl in 2004.

    The article or case summary that you are looking for is probably in that very long thread.

    Search Dogs were called in to look for the girls several days after they went missing. I do not recall what specifics of that search were reported in that article, but I recall that the dogs seemed to pick up the girls' scent, but shortly afterward lost it. It was also stated that the dog handler did not have a direction (track) on the girls. That is, he did not know which direction the girls were moving in when they left their scent. The dogs did not locate any forensic evidence, nor did they find the girls or any sign of them.

    The parking lot of Wheaton Plaza (then and now) extends completely around the stores. It is bordered by University Blvd on the north and Viers Mill Road on the east. There are two vehicle entrances from each road. A perimeter road runs around the entire parking lot area. To the west and south is the residential area of Kensington, MD.

    If the article mentioned a hill, it could have been referring to the area between the back of Wards and the end of Faulkner Road, since you have to walk slightly down hill when walking the foot path into Kensington. It is also possible that a hill could be the slight uphill hike you make from the intersection of Drumm and McComas as you move toward Plyers Mill Road.

    The only stream that I know of is the stream which feeds into the Nursing home pond near the beginning of the "foot path throught the wooded area". Perhaps that is the stream mentioned in the article, but I do not know for certain.

    Tracking Dog reference:

    Here is an excerpt from a 3 April 1975 Washington Star front page article. This was actually nine days after the girls went missing. The entire article can be seen in my post number 2 of the thread titled "Tape Recorder Man".

    The quote appears at the very end of the story about "Jimmy's" only interview with the news media. The story states that the dogs were there for two days, so it was probable that the previous day's news story was about the Philadelphia tracking dogs searching the Mall and residential area.

    Note that this means it took the police a full week before the dogs were brought in.

    (quote)
    ... After eight tense days, the investigation of the Lyon girls' disappearance is settling into the tiring, colorless and seemingly endless routine of tracking down one fruitless lead after another - remembering, the police often note, that it may take only one good lead to resolve the mystery.

    Yesterday, specially trained tracking dogs from Philadelphia spent the morning sniffing the area behind Oakland Terrace Elementary School and Newport Junior High, where the girls are students, in a re-check of an area officers already have searched twice.

    Police said the dogs turned up nothing. Their two day role in the continuing drama ended as have so many apparently hopeful starts - quietly, uneventfully, sadly.

    "We don't have anything," one officer said yesterday. "We're right back where we started."
