Paige Aiello, NJ College Student Missing Since Tuesday After Her Purse Was Found On The George Washington Bridge

paige-aielloPaige Aiello, 22, is a college senior who had been working two jobs and preparing to attend Rutgers Law School this fall when she suddenly went missing three days ago.

The honor student was last seen Tuesday March 9, 2013 by her father, Christopher Aiello and about two hours later her mother noticed her vehicle had been taken without her permission. Authorities said the car was found at a parking garage near a train station in a New Brunswick and later that same night her purse and car keys were discovered by a passerby on the south walkway of the George Washington bridge in NYC, which has her parents very worried. They have tried reaching her on her mobile phone numerous times to no avail.

‘Please get a phone,’ Christopher Aiello said ‘Call because we need you and want to see you again.’

Paige had recently moved back to her parents home to be with her family after struggling to deal with stress of her busy schedule, her family said. Her father believes her 22nd birthday, which was to be celebrated yesterday, could be a motive to her disappearance.

‘With her birthday coming and with the fact that she was distraught, [maybe] she just wanted to be missing and not celebrate during this time,’ Mr Aiello told NBC. ‘I really don’t know what to think.’

He also said that his daughter was the captain of the school’s woman’s tennis team and described her as being a ‘high achiever” and was dealing with alot of stress prior to her disappearance.

“She has been all-conference and has been accepted into approximately nine law schools for next year,” he said. “It’s maybe just too much.”

“She had hit almost like a wall where she felt she was not maybe either worthy of all this or she just couldn’t handle it. So the message that at least I’ve been saying all day is not only do we have to be watching our children that are not doing well and getting in trouble but we have to see and watch the kids that are the over-achievers. They have a self-imposed stress,” Aiello said. “She did express stress.”

NYPD have scanned the water below the bridge but have so far found no trace of the missing student. Christopher Aiello said he had been briefed by the Port Authority Police Thursday afternoon that no witnesses had reported seeing anyone jumping from the bridge, which gives many hope that she will be found alive.

Paige is described as a White female with long brown hair, brown eyes and a thin frame. She appears to have light freckles on her face.

NAME: Suzanne G. Lyall
MISSING SINCE: March 2, 1998
FROM: Albany, New York

Suzanne “Suzy” Lyall was last seen on the night of March 2, 1998, at approximately 9:20 p.m., when she left her shift at the Crossgates Mall in Guilderland, NY. She was known to have boarded a Capital District Transit Authority bus heading to Collins Circle at the State University of New York (SUNY), in Albany, where she was a student. It is believed that she exited the bus at Collins Circle at approximately 9:45 p.m., which is the last known sighting of the young woman.

Mary Lyall, the mother of Suzy Lyall, told Crimesider: “When her dorm was checked, it appeared as if she was coming back. Her hair dryer was on the bed, all her personal items were still there&she had money on top of her desk, change.”

The morning after Suzy vanished, her boyfriend at the time, Richard Condon, contacted her parents to tell them that he couldn’t reach Suzy. “Her boyfriend told us that she was missing. I believe he said that Suzanne didn’t come home last night or something to that effect.” said Doug Lyall, Suzy’s father.

After some investigation, police discovered that an unidentified individual had used the Suzy’s credit-card the following day on March 3, 1998 at Stewart’s Store on the corner of Manning Boulevard and Central Avenue in Albany at approximately 4:00 p.m. When police viewed the stores security footage they noticed a African-American male come in around the same time the transaction took place. 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.” Police asked the young man to come forward but he never did nor did anyone come forward with his identity. – Click here to view a composite sketch of the person of interest.

According to NYPD, Suzy’s employee name-tag was discovered two months later in a grassy area near the visitors parking lot which is approximately 30 yards from CC bus stop.

Shortly before she disappeared she had spoken to a co-worker about a possible stalker. The co-worker would later tell investigators that Suzy didn’t appear to concerned/threatened with the thought of a stalker harming her. It is unknown if the potential stalker is tied to the unidentified male seen walking into Stewart’s Store.

Suzy’s parents refuse to give up. They created a website to keep their daughters case alive. One of the pages features a letter to her daughters – To the person who took Suzanne

Mary Lyall told Crimesider: “I want her back. I don t care how I get her back but I want her back”, when speaking about her daughter, Suzy.

The family along with the University of Albany raised $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and convictions of the person(s) responsible for her disappearance.

CLOTHING: Suzanne was last seen wearing a long black denim coat, a black shirt, and blue jeans. She was carrying a black book bag and had long hair past her shoulders . She was known to be an avid computer user and enjoyed spending time conversing online. She may also have been wearing a polished 14-karat gold fluted bow ring, a frog-shaped silver ring and a necklace with a silver medallion inscribed with a runic character that resembles the letter “S” (jewelry pictured above)

Suzie, the family dog, died and Carlos said he would be right back, that he was going to bury her. He did not have any identification (ID) with him. When he didn’t return, the missing man’s brother went to go look for him and noticed Suzie hadn’t been buried. Carlos was never seen again. He was a father of one and left behind a baby daughter and family. His family feels he would have never left on his own.
 
Carlos had previously suffered a head injury by being struck in the head, and has another medical condition. Doctors stated it was possible that Carlos could lose his memory at any given time. 

His family created a Myspace page: Help Find Carlos Diaz under the about me section, a family member wrote: 

*I need your help to find A Brother/Uncle/Father and Son who has been missing. Carlos is the type of person who loved being outdoors with his family/friends and dog Susie., but most of all his daughter Lesa. Wherever he had to go he was always riding his bike. He took that bike everywhere. Laughter & fun was always his Motto. He’s the type of person that would bring a smile to your face if you were down & out. He is a fun & loving person to be with, but on December 23, 1986 the family dog (susie) died everything changed. Carlos said he would be right back because he was going to bury Susie. After he left is when we realized he did not take any identification with him. It was getting late and my other brother Nelson went to go looking for him and all he found was Susie (unburied) but not Carlos. My mother and sister went to the police station to file a missing persons report, they handed a detective a photo of Carlos and what happened and his response was that my brother wasn’t eligible for a missing person report. He had to be between the ages of very young to 16 and 50-60 yrs. of age. So anyone between those ages were considered to have taken off. They kept his photo. Calls were made there after, months went by and the responses were “We do not have anything new”. Carlos would of never left his family especially his daughter. We would like to put some closure to this, so if anyone has seen him.

Etan Patz Suspect, Jose Ramos, Re-arrested For Violating Megan’s Law

  • Jose Ramos was re-arrested shortly after being released from a 25-year sentence, because he failed to provide accurate information as required of sex offenders under “Megan’s Law”, according to state police.
  • Ramos was once the prime suspect in Etan Patz abduction but charges were never filed due to lack of evidence.
  • Failed to supply information to state police and taken into custody again
  • Etan vanished on May 25, 1979, while walking alone to a school bus stop in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood
  • The NYPD is currently trying to build a case against Pedro Hernandez, a New Jersey man who has confessed to killing the boy

Jose A. Ramos was successfully sued for wrongful death in Etan's disappearance but never convicted of criminal charges

Pictured above: Jose A. Ramos, the prime suspect in the disappearance of six-year-old Etan Patz, but he was never convicted in connection to the case due to lack of evidence or a body.

Etan Patz

11/07/12, PHILADELPHIA — A man long considered the prime suspect in the disappearance of a New York City boy more than three decades ago was released from a Pennsylvania prison on Wednesday then immediately arrested on a Megan’s Law violation, state police said.

Jose Antonio Ramos was immediately taken into custody following his release from a northeastern Pennsylvania prison where he spent more than 20 years for molesting children because he failed to provide accurate information as required of sex offenders, according to state police.

Ramos had long been suspected in the disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz, who vanished May 25, 1979, after leaving his Manhattan home to go to a bus stop two blocks away. It was the first time his parents had let him go off to school alone.

Investigators in Etan’s case have long been focused on Ramos, who had been dating the boy’s baby sitter and later served the time in Pennsylvania for molesting two other boys.

State police did not immediately specify what information Ramos failed to supply. A phone message left with state police in Wyoming County was not immediately returned Wednesday morning.

Etan’s disappearance prompted a massive search that stretched as far as Israel and spawned the national movement to publicize the cases of missing children. The blond, blue-eyed boy’s photo was among the first put on milk cartons, and his case turned May 25 into National Missing Children’s Day.

His parents never moved or changed their phone number, in case he returned. In 2001, they obtained a court order officially declaring their son dead. They have become outspoken advocates for child protection issues.

Ramos was declared responsible for Etan’s death in a civil court in 2004, but the Manhattan district attorney’s office has said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him criminally. Ramos has denied any involvement in Etan’s disappearance.

Earlier this year, a new suspect named Pedro Hernandez was charged with Etan’s murder after police said he confessed this spring. His lawyer, Harvey Fishbein, has said Hernandez is mentally ill, and authorities have not cited any additional evidence to implicate him beyond his own admission.

Prosecutors are expected this month to announce whether they believe there’s evidence enough to continue pursuing a case against Hernandez, who worked at a convenience store near Etan’s home when the boy disappeared and told police he strangled the boy and stuffed his body in a trash bag.
