    Lyall left work at Babbages Software in the Crossgates Mall in Guilderland, New York at approximately 9:20 PM on March 2, 1998 and boarded a Capital District Authority bus near the mall. She exited the bus at approximately 9:40 PM at the Collins Circle at the State University Of New York in Albany. Lyall has never been seen since.

    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 posted below this case summary. 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."
