Out of all the missing persons I viewed so far this is actually the best match from a information and looks stand point. Now there is the thought no one is missing him and he has no family left. At that age, if he got divorced or never married at all or never had any kids, it is entirely possible that he has no family left. It is a very sad thought but entirely possible too.
    I agree there are a lot of similarities in the two. Aging changes a lot but the nose is awfully close IMO.All I can see is his bottom lip but it fits.

    It was mentioned that perhaps Mr. Kyle was on a business trip to or through the area when the the event that caused his amnesia took place, so I thought it might be helpful to know what the major industries are in & around that area.....

    Another odd thing, wouldn't his employer notice he was missing? Why is no one looking for him? Maybe there are people who are missing him, but they are missing him in another Country. Far fetched, but maybe his last know place was in a foreign country for work and people known to him assume he went missing there. Unknownst to them he had returned to the US and met with misadventure here. Does that make sense?

    This case is driving me nuts. I can only imagine how Benjaman must feel!

    Here is a database that lists international missing. I didn't see any matches. But Benjamin might want to get his picture into them, just in case.

    If anyone had to guesstimate.....what time frame should we search for missing persons?

    I don't know how long he was missing or whatever before being found behind the burger king? Any suggestions? I have been searching all morning but can't find but a couple that went missing around the same time he was found.

    Yay!! Hopefully a news outlet with wider coverage (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc.) will pick it up if there is enough interest!

    ehh. That's a hard one. The amnesia "spell" could have started months before he was found if he went missing and then was just aimlessly wandering around before the attack. I tend to think his amnesia was onset due to the attack, so I would think he would have known who he was up until that point. If that was the case, more than likely he would have been reported missing in the days or weeks surrounding August 31, 2004. Who knows how long he wasy lying behind the Burger King, too. BUT, this is all purely conjecture on my part though.

    He may not have had family or friends at all, and he may NEVER have been reported missing. I'm hoping that's not the case, and someone, somewhere out there is waiting for him.

    I began searching on the date he was found have gone backwards on different sites so far. I searched one site last night back to 2000. (Took four hours and found nothing except many, many missing people other than BK.)

    While it is reasonable to believe the amnesia occurred due to the attack, there simply isn't any way to know.

    I found the good link to the story about the man with amnesia who was found by his wife after 12 years. Here it is: http://www.dailyherald.com/story/print/?id=37918

    ~snipped from the article above~
    According to Dr. Kathy Borchardt, director of neuropsychology at Central DuPage Hospital's Neurosciences Institute in Winfield, retrograde amnesia is unusual. A case that lasts for several years is "extremely rare," she said.
    An individual who suffers amnesia due to a head injury typically loses the memories immediately after the trauma, said Borchardt, who has never treated Hyzy. And most cases of memory loss are resolved in three to six months, she said. But many mysteries still surround the brain.
    "Memory is not a simple process," she said. "There's a lot we still don't know about head injuries and amnesia."
    Different memories involve different areas of the brain and separate pathways between those areas. Name recognition, for example, is processed differently than relational memory, such as knowing who your wife is.

    Which sites have you all searched? I was on the NCMA site earlier today, but also found nothing remotely similar. I wish wish wish there was just one consistant site for the missing. Until then, we'll keep digging...

    just to let everyone know.. I searched all of www.missingadultsmap.com for every state starting yesterday and finished today, everything I thought was a good lead, I forwarded to BKs nurse. I went back as far as 1997 just to be safe. I started on NCMA, for each state, viewing every last name, every pic that remotely resembles BK, and also any names with Benjamin.. its a long, slow process and more eyes are best! Good luck, lets find his family!

    Great work! However, I would prefer we discuss them here instead of forwarding them on to the nurse. If we weed out the ones we feel either are not applicable or don't match...we can alleviate some of the pressure on her.

    I went through the North American Missing Persons Network (www.nampn.org) for hours last night. While it isn't the best of sites for searching (you have to click on every name to get any info), I went back as far as 2000...so I have more to go on that site today.

    I think we can forgo NCMC/NCMA as they have already searched diligently and found nothing there.

    I did post them here also.. sorry I wasn't clear about that in my post :0) .. only had a couple that I thought might be or could be him..

    What about Thomas Ray James? http://www.nampn.org/cases/james_thomas_ray.html BlueCat mentioned him earlier, and I think he's a possibility. He's from Michigan, but his car was found in Kentucky.

    I was searching at nampn.org also, I searched April - September, 2004 and he's the only one I felt was close enough to post.

    It drives me crazy when people don't put pictures of their missing loved ones. This guy fits the height/weight, but who knows if it's him??

    Gosh, I wish I spoke French! LOL I think the eyebrows are set higher, haircoloring is much darker plus the guys ears stick out a lot more, IMO. The shape of his face is good tho. : )

    BK's hair isn't gray tho. It does match everything else quite well. Did you try doing a search on his name and last location? Maybe he is listed on other sites or they have one set up for him somewhere.
