Suzanne Lyall: Missing from Albany since 1998

Suzanne Gloria Lyall, 19, from Albany, New York was last seen getting off a bus at the Collins Circle stop at the University of Albany campus on March 2, 1998.  Somewhere between the bus stop and her dorm room she vanished and has not been seen since.

Authorities found that Suzy's debit card had been used at a nearby convenience store ATM around 4:00 p.m. that day.  Per CBS News the surveillance camera was not able to see who withdrew the money.  The pin number was used to withdraw $20.00.  Richard Condon, who was Suzy's boyfriend said that Suzy and himself were the only one's that had the number.

Condon never took a polygraph test and after the initial interview, would not speak to the police without his lawyer. 

Suzy is 5'3" tall, 175 pounds with dark blonde hair and blue eyes.  She also has a light brown birthmark on her left calf, mole on her left cheek beneath her ear lobe and a surgical scar on her left foot.

"Suzanne's Law" requiring local police to notify the National Crime Information Center when someone between 18 and 21 is reported missing was signed into law by President Bush as part of the national "Amber Alert" bill. The federal law is named after Suzanne Lyall.  Previously police were only required to report missing persons under the age of 18.

  1. Thank you for posting about cold cases! I know people go missing every day and you are so good about posting recent missing persons. But, I'm sure Suzy Lyall's family misses her terribly even to this day. Thanks for keeping her name in the news.

  2. You should mention that they have a description of the person who used the debit card (was neither Suzy or her boyfriend) and that person has never been identified but his sketch is available online.

  3. that is not definite. the sketch was a guy that went to the cash register around that time. no video on the atm. a few things stick out. the boyfriend admitted he is only one with atm # besides her. only $20 taken out, not the full amount in the account (reported $120). that $20 withdrawal screaming to me a move to try and stall investigators. and he lawyered up early on.

    at the minimum, if i was suzy parents, i would sue him and see what info you can weasel out of him. at this point you have to throw up a hail mary!

  4. if not boyfriend, they should have saved the surveillance tapes from her job at mall the last week before she went missing. then when they identified the guy from sketch, they should have went back to tapes to make sure he isnt in any photo's.. i would also interview the guy who worked with Suzy to see if he knew guy from sketch. 1+1=2

  6. I'm wondering if Castro has any link in the Albany, NY area. The recent escape of those three women in Cleveland, I'm hoping, will give the Lyall family new hope.

  7. Its Distressing To See How Many People In America Go Missing Each Year. So Scary. Im Glad I Decided To Not Have Children. Otherwise I Would Never Sleep Because Of Worry.

  8. If I where the person looking for Suzanne Lyall, I definitely look at campus security! I have looked at a lot of similar cases, with girls going missing on campus into thin air! This would most likely be someone she trusted! Although, by know means am I saying that campus security had anything to do with it, but it catches my curiosity that no one heard any loud screams that night, and where her I.D was found! So I would go back and look at some of the campus security, who worked that shift, the night she "disappeared"! I just think this was no random abduction!

  11. They shoild keep on pressuring her boyfriend. Her mother said that he acted as if nothing had happened. They arrested a man for attempting to kidnap a highschool student in that area. I would definitely use extreme interrogation techniques on that suspect to see what would happen.

  12. I think that the boyfriend should have to take a polygraph if nothing more than to rule him out. If you did nothing then there is nothing to hide. I would actually re-polygraph everyone. Something is just not right here. There are a few girls missing. However, no one heard loud screams or a scuffle? She got off the bus and vanished. So I think maybe she was picked up by someone she trusted and then was kidnapped. As far as the pin....2 people knew it so either he "Nike Man" had her and forced her to give the pin or the BF gave him the pin and hired him....in what is if I cannot have her no one will. They need to talk to that Collins guy again and maybe even offer a plea deal for information if he is really a strong suspect as indicated. Either way I pray they find her and my prayers also go out to the family. They need a fresh set of eyes maybe to look at this too. Once you are doing something for so long you can only do so much.

  13. To me, every time I see this episode of 'Disappeared', her boss stands out. Her badge was found in the work parking lot, and she would have trusted her boss to some degree. Perhaps he set her up...just the way he talks about her is strange and seems as though he is nervous or too confidant...just weird.
