    I don't know the answer about Benjaman having reconstructive surgery on his nose, I was curious of the same thing.

    I do want to say that before I was supposed to undergo a sinus/nose surgery, the doctor warned me that some of the repair work could cause a change in the appearance of my nose.

    It might be a good question to ask Benjaman, it would have to be in his medical records, if it was done after he was found, right? (Obviously he doesn't have his previous records. But his doctors after he was found may have noted if his nose had been worked on previously, if there were tell tale signs?)

    I agree, FWIW...also, IMO, again, FWIW, the ears do not match, facial shape...if we had a UID, I might look harder, but thankfully Mr Kyle is alive and we have facts to compare.

    Cecil Clarence: no way is Benjaman 87 years old!

    Benjamin Barros: he's a little too tall and 150lbs is way skinny at 6'1" - but even if that's out it's a long, long way from Benjaman's 240lb weight three months later. Benjaman's build wouldn't allow him to weigh less than 170 even as a young adult with no fat.

    I do see a slight facial resemblance but that would have to be a much earlier picture than 2004 although the age is just about possible.

    Same info as NaMus, but quotes NaMus as their source for the information.
    It says contact Colorado Bureau of Investigation, but no phone number.

    NaMus has case number 891-0199, CBI

    Identifying marks: strawberry birthmark on back of neck.
    scar on abdomen.

    Unknown if BK has this birthmark. I don't think it has been mentioned, but could be a hold back.

    Wow! I have always thought that Benjaman looks like someone I know in south Louisiana. Mr. Barros looks just like that same man, only a younger version. I wonder if they are related. I'll forward the pics to him and see what he thinks.

    We do not contact family with such things, this hasn't even been sleuthed yet...what if this guy has a missing relative and it's NOT Mr Kyle..this could be very upsetting. We work w/LE, FBI. If you think there may be something here, investigate further then put a tip into the proper authorities. We are not trained to deal w/such situations. If families contact us, we will work with them but still go to LE and verify and work w/them on all tips.

    We can't stop you, but we ask that you think through and take the proper steps if you think this is a relative of Mr. Kyles.

    IMO, Mr Barros is too tall and too thin, he also has dark complextion.

    I don't see how Barros could possibly be Benjaman or even related. Barros looks to be part Hispanic and the name reflects that as well, imo.

    No, no, no. That's not what I meant. I would NEVER contact a family member of a missing person. I was going to send it to the man I know that looks like both of those men. We are very close friends. He does not have any missing family members. I just thought the resemblance was so strong and that he would be interested.

    Reading back over my post I can see why you were concerned. I'm sorry. I was just wondering aloud if they were related. I wasn't going to suggest that to him. Just thought he would be interested.

    It is so ironic to say this, but Benjaman must have one of those "familiar" faces. I know a guy here that could be his brother. The resemblance is uncanny. Strange when you consider how long we have searched and all the faces we have seen which don't match him.

    I agree. I see no resemblence whatsoever. Barros is very mediteranean (sp?) looking....

    I agree. It's almost like he looks just like so and so.... but you can't quite put your finger on it. For me, it is like I sware I have seen him before but can't quite place where......

    respectfully snipped.....

    FWIW I don't think Richard Meyer is Mr. Kyle. While the eyes are similiar, Mr Meyer appears to have a 'pug nose'. His left ear lobe is much 'longer' than Mr. Kyles and the outside shape of his left earlobe is much 'rounder' than Mr. Kyles which, imo, is more square shaped. Mr. Meyes face is also much more of a square shape than Mr. Kyles.

    I know! Right, Cubby? He does look like "that guy". LOL

    Sorry, Benjaman! Maybe the problem is that you have a more "familiar" face instead of a truly recognizable one with odd features. While it is a good thing that your face is normal, it makes tracking you down more difficult. I pay attention to the nose. It is the one characteristic which stands out to me.

    This photo was taken at a Powell Family Reunion in 2002:

    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/1041586475030614885zoQqkD

    look close at this fellows ears...

    In reference to one of the pictures on this site, it says Crossville Festival. I searched Crossville Festival and came up with Tennessee, Alabama, and Illinois.
    I do believe these pictures above are from Tennessee, as one of the photo's on this site shows a bridge which I found to look like the one in the photo of:

    http://good-times.webshots.com/photo/1041585717030614885IdGWeg
    (bridge from reunion photo)(also, notice the caption at the top of the page)

    http://www.tennessee.gov/environment/parks/CumberlandMtn/
    (seems to be same bridge, at Cumberland Mountain State Park)

    I think he is Benjaman-like but not spot on...the face shape and jaw line and dimpled chin throw me off....JMO. I think his coloring is similar.
