Suzanne Lyall RingSuzanne Lyall RingSuzanne Lyall NecklaceSuzanne Lyall bow ringShe was last seen wearing a long black trench coat, a black shirt, and blue jeans. She was carrying a black book bag or tote bag.

Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. Her photos are shown age-progressed to 26 years and 33 years, respectively. Suzanne was last seen on the evening of March 2, 1998, at approximately 9:20 p.m., as she left work at Babbages Software in the Crossgates Mall in Guilderland, New York. She boarded a Capital District Transit Authority bus heading to Collins Circle at the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany, New York, where she was a student. It is believed that she exited the bus at Collins Circle at approximately 9:45 p.m. and has not been seen since that time.  Lyall was known to be an avid computer user and enjoyed spending time conversing online. Lyall's work name tag was discovered in an area adjacent to the visitors' parking lot at the University shortly after her disappearance. The tag was located approximately 30 yards from the Collins Circle bus stop, but it is not known if Lyall lost the tag the night she disappeared. One of Lyall's co-workers told authorities that she mentioned she was being stalked by an unidentified man before March 1998. The co-worker stated that Lyall did not appear to frightened of the person. Lyall's ATM card was used by an unidentified person on March 3, 1998, the day after her initial disappearance. The card was used at Stewart's Store on the corner of Manning Boulevard and Central Avenue in Albany at approximately 4:00 PM. Authorities would like to question an African-American male who made a purchase at the business around the same time as Lyall's card was used in a transaction. (A sketch of the unidentified possible witness is shown below.) It is not known if he is connected to Lyall's case. He was wearing a mid-length Carhartt-style jacket and a dark-colored Nike baseball cap with the company logo imprinted on the front. Some agencies refer to this possible witness as "Nike Man." Lyall's case remains unsolved.
