    Carol - I saw this the other day, but didn't have time to compare the picture w/BK's. I do see some similarities, but Frank's eyes appear to be much darker than BK's? Could just be the lighting of the picture? Also Frank's bottom lip seems fuller and Frank's ears seem to be closer to his head. I don't know how much of this changes as we age and lose weight?

    The shape of the nose is similar to BK's, the eyebrows appear to be long and wide like BK's and the shape of the eyes is similar.

    Do we know if Frank has DNA in the database? It could be worth a check?

    Salem,
    I finally got a chance to do a search on this fellow, he is not BK
    he has brown eyes, 5'8", when I posted it, all I could find at the time was the article. finally found him under FRANCIS CANTEA, Frank is nickname.

    Way to go Salem! You really got a ball rolling rather fast with that email!

    Well..... I received an email back today and the dectective said he was going to make sure the FBI compared Mark's DNA to BK's!!!!

    I know this is a really long shot. But there is something about BK's smile and his left ear that just keeps nagging at me and I can't seem to let this one go. I'm excited. The detective did not indicate he saw any resemblance to the family or anything. All he said was thanks for the links and he would be sure the FBI ran the DNA.

    Like me, I think he thought it was interesting that will all the fingerprint checking and the publicity that BK has received, no one is claiming him.... Doesn't make sense, so I guess he thinks its worth one of these really long shots also

    Who does the submitting for Benjamin? Do we do our own work, or does someone on the board do it for us?

    Carolwood, do you mean as far as contacting LE officials or perhaps FBI Bill (that's been mentioned - I recall that believe09 has been the one to be in touch with him for the most part)?

    If you mean a situation of making contact with LE on one of the possibles you've located recently to see if they have already or can initiate the process of comparing - my understanding is that anyone can. It may be helpful to just do a quick ask to see if anyone has already for that particular person so you don't double the work but my take is that the more who do this and post their progress, the better!

    As with Salem's recent work sometimes (perhaps most times) it is warmly recieved that someone is "out there" trying and it progresses both cases in a way.

    I, personally, have not done this myself to date, so perhaps there is a "check list" of sorts that is posted or can be that can guide us all in this particular task. I'm sure none of us want to come off as less than serious should we take this on. :-)

    I know snowme - I'm rather surprised. I figured they would say that there was no way it could be Mark because... who knows what and I was really surprised when the detective said he was going to double check with the FBI to make sure the DNA was checked. Even now it gives me butterflies in my tummy

    So next question is - how long does it take? I haven't heard anything back and I don't want to bug the detective so I'm thinking I will give him until after the holidays and then maybe check in with him again?

    There are tips posted for submitting a possible match. If they are not in this forum for BK they are definitely in the Lighting the Way Home forum.

    And as Snowme said - it is good to let us know you are going to submit someone so we can let you know if we already have or if there is any other issue/concern.

    I actually looked at Mark a very long time ago and talked about submitting him but I really procrastinated because I just feel like it is such a long shot as I explained in my posts above. But that's why, when I finally decided to do it, I just did, without posting first.

    Hope that makes sense....

    I'm so proud of you! Seriously, I really am!

    Not sure on how long but I'd be generous (antsy waiting, I know!!) but I do think it'd be good to get back in touch after the holidays simply because it's a busy time of year and getting back on track afterward is sometimes clumsey and slow, for lack of a better phrase.

    I'm fairly new so I had no clue, I am still trying to read this forum board, whew, feels like I'll never finish. I will read the Lighting the way forum. Also, on page 8 of the forum I posted on a Andy Sims, Salem suggested calling this one in. Has this been done? You know us newbies...

    There does seem to be very fresh interest in the Sims case going on. Since you posted it so recently and I don't recall anyone saying they'd contacted anyone regarding it. Maybe this is your baby, so to speak! :-)

    I looked real quick and don't find Andy listed on either the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's site or on the Texas Missing Persons Clearinghouse site. Maybe that needs to be done. The article you linked for us here lists the lead investigator as Witchita Falls Police Detective Tony Fox, he'd be the one to get in touch with, I'd say. Here's a link to the Witchita Falls PD page: http://www.cwftx.net/index.asp?nid=17 There's a main number there.

    I would agree. Go with it. When I first looked at Andy Sims picture, I thought he had a look of BK.
    At the very least, have the dental checked or dna.
    Have the local police get in touch with FBI Bill K.
    What do you think?

    Each time I've looked at Andy Sim's picture I'm "drawn in"... good-looking boy. I don't think he's Benjaman due to the differences in the ears and nose, and Andy's eyes appear to be very dark, likely brown.... but there is *something* in his face or eyes... just *something* that came across the same way one or two of Benjaman's photos does. Maybe it's that mischievous, silly photo of BK that I'm thinking of, lol!

    ETA: Carolwood... if you do contact Detective Fox, please do ask him if Andy's info has been submitted to NCMEC and the TX MPC. Considering the age of the case and the fact that it seems like that department has never forgotten Andy I'm a little shocked that he doesn't appear on either database.

    Mr. Tony Fox is on vacation, I will submit all info on BK this evening via email, and it will be on top of his desk for when he returns. Dorine was not sure when he was returning from vacation, I will stay on top.

    Good job Carol! This is the only way we are going to figure out who BK is and help him get himself back. It has been way too long for no one to be missing him.

    Salem

    PS - did you find the tips?
