WA LYLE STEVIK: M, found at hotel in Grays Harbor County, WA - 17 Sept 2001 *Identified*

    Album on Never Forget Me - Amanda Park, Grays Harbor County, Washington - September 17, 2001

    Unidentified male; known as “Lyle Stevik”. He was found on September 17th, 2001, alone in a hotel room and sad enough to feel that there wasn’t much worth left in his life. He went far away, perhaps in the hope that anyone close to him would not know where he was, for whatever reasons unknown to the rest of the world. A man young enough to have graduated high school only a few years prior or maybe just recently graduated high school, depending on what his real age was. But “Lyle Stevik” isn’t his name at all. In fact, nobody knows what his real name is. He was found in Amanda Park, Grays Harbor County, Washington (Some websites list it as "Montesano, Washington), and was last alive between September 14th, 2001 and sometime during September 16th, 2001.

    Who was he? A son? Grandson? Brother? Nephew? Uncle? Boyfriend/fiancé? Someone’s BFF? A co-worker? Honor student? Valedictorian? Immigrant/Refugee?

    Where was he from? Canada? Another part of the US? An overseas democracy? A war torn country? A dictatorship?

    What were his reasons? Was he fleeing from abuse? Was someone going after him? Was he jilted? Was he suffering from psychological trauma? A death of a parent, lover, or a friend? Persecution?

    Who is he? Certainly someone would recognize a handsome man with a distinctive appearance. There has to be someone out there who is looking for their son, grandson, best friend, or boyfriend.

    If you recognize “Lyle Stevik” as family member or friend, or if you have any other information about him, please call:

    I believe Lyle's hair was tested for Isotopes. Could have sworn I had a photo that showed the states it would include but I'm not seeing it.

    If he traveled a lot in the south, could he have been cajun?

    Oh wow! I never realized he said he was from Meridian! I went to high school there for one semester when my mom was living in Star. It's a really small town. You'd think someone from there would know him, if he really did live there for any length of time. Then again, I haven't been there in years and it might have been huge by 2001.

    It was thought that Lyle was American Indian but there is nothing noted in his dental chart that he had shovel teeth. There is also a thread for Balkan connection

    Hope it's ok to bring 2 quotes over from Reddit; if not please delete

    Well, that's a long way from Idaho!!! :thinking:

    His hair wasn't really that long, so he could have been in Idaho before. He obviously knew the address of the hotel there.

    Thank you Advocate. I found a missing that I think resembles him other than height.
    I didn't see him listed in the rule outs.
    Missing from VA which could match the isotope information.

    Donald Billings
    If the mustache was shaved off I see some resemblance.
    Also in the physical it states his nose had been broken.
    The UID has a crooked nose.
    Anyway, LMK what you guys think. Thanks. :)

    Donald has a gap in his front teeth. Do we have an image of Lyle's?
  16. patsella

    patsella Bronze Member

    Not a good one. I wasn't sure if that was a gap or shadow. Something about him looks like the UID. Hairline, eyebrows are thick, nose, and chin.
    Probably not him, but thought it would be worth mentioning.
    He left the scene of an accident and disappeared.

    Kimster Director Staff Member

    I think they look similar as well, other than that gap.
  18. patsella

    I knew it was a long shot, but I just kept going back to him and something about him resembled the UID.

    On another thought the UID looks like he could be middle-eastern. Turkish, Greek, Jewish?
    The photo with the green foliage background is the one that leads me down that path.

    Very sad that he didn't at least leave a note as to his identity so he could be buried with
    his name rather than John Doe or an alias.

    I wish namus would post a photo of dental xray of just the front teeth.
    That would be a big help in ruling out possible matches. :)

    They used to show more information and then started pulling them back. IIRC, I was told it was because of HIPPA!
