Gene Lysle

Gene has been missing since June 13, 2004 from Wellsville, Ohio. He was last seen by a family member when he was dropped off at SR 213 in Wellsville. He indicated that he was going to hitchhike to a concert in Burgettstown, PA. After the concert, he was possiably dropped off on Market Street near The Hot Dog Shoppe in East Liverpool. Anyone with any information please contact the Wellsville Police Dept. @ 330-532-1522

Any further info would be appriciated.! Belinda

Here is a link http://www.nampn.org/cases/lysle_gene_w.html

I cant really make contact at this point.

I am Gene's cousin. Gene is presumed to be dead, but not confirmed. There is a rumor that two people are involved in his death- that it was an accident and they buried him. I wish those idiots would just get it over with, tell what happened, and let my aunt have to peace.

Who R U said...

I am told by someone I consider reliable that the rumor is that he was barried near Star Lake. The same location he was last seen at. If this is a wide spread rumor which I am told it is, why has there not been a search effort? Why has the "investigation" stopped?

It goes even further into frustration when the same two names have come up again and again. An aunt of mine on my mother's side of the family (Gene is on my father's side) works with someone who saw the story in the papers two years ago and said it was her own cousin and a woman (his girlfriend?) that did it. This info was forwarded and nothing was done about it. At this point the family is resigned to the fact the Gene is most likely dead, but as any mother would understand, we would all just like to know for certain and be able to bury him in a respectable manner. Gene's mother has done a more extensive job searching than the actual police have, which is pretty disenchanting but not very surprising. From all the links I've followed while doing searches on Gene's name, there are a lot of people out there that are very skeptical of Wellsville's police force. If you're fairly certain that you've been given reliable information, please forward it on to the police AND my aunt, Sherrill Jackson of Wellsville. I'm sure her number is published somewhere. You can also forward it to me and I'll give it to my aunt.

Has there ever been an organized search of Star Lake or the State Game Lands near Star Lake? I think it would be worth while to have such a search. I will volunteer to come.

I would like to say "THANK YOU" to everyone for their kindness and support in this long search for answers.Reportedly Wellsville police were told by Barry Simms and Pam Crews Webber that they gave Gene a ride back to East Liverpool following the concert.

Sherrill said...

Most people only know of Gene through newspaper stories. He was my oldest son.Gene was an alcoholic.The consequences of his life style were very evident over the years.He was in and out of hospitals and jails for things that happened while he was drinking. I always thought thered be a police call saying he was found dead somewhere. I never expected to be searching woods,roadsides,other towns,hospitals and jails for answers.This Ive done since June of 2004.The support and prayers of many people have kept my family with hope that someday in someway Gene will be brought back to us.I would ask for my family and the families of all the missing and murdered a blessing of answers, justice and peace.

I saw this man at a Lynard Skynard concert I believe the day he disappeared, he was one of the first ones thru the gates and he sat on top of the hill he had a portable oxygen tank with him, and he was with a thin man with glasses and a heavy set blond woman when I last saw him he only caught my attention because he was younger and was using that oxygen tank and I thought how sad that was. I know this is not much but I hopw this can help someone.

HIS MOTHER THINKS OF HIM EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY I'M SURE.I DON'T KNOW HER PERSONALLY BUT ATE IN THE DINNER BEFORE AND HEARD OF THE MISSING MAN. HOW COULD ANYONESLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO HIM AS WELAS HIS FAMILY?? PLEASE SOMEONE HELP THIS FAMILY? DO WHAT IS RIGHT AND TELL WHAT YOU KNOW. ARE YOU THE GIRLFRIEND OF THE KILLER?

To the last comment:

It sounds like you know a little more than what your willing to say.

Sherrill said...

Today is June 01 2009.Just the thought of another year gone by when June 13th comes without any answers is really depressing for me.I'm so thankful for Belinda and Kim and all those in C.C.F.H.V. who are willing to tell how they are searching and never giving up. God bless you all.

This is aburd, Barry Sims wouldn't hurt a fly, he saw someone in need of a ride and helped them, that doesn't make someone GUILTY, IGNORANCE of people is sometimes the reason for false assumptions, Barry is my husband, I've seen him mad, I've seen him dad, I've seen him in all emotions possible, he wouldn't hurt anyone, he is kind and caring, how dare you accuse someone just because they helped him with a ride, with no proof of foul play behind your assumptions, you can ruin someone's life with such accusations, assumptions, and. Guessing games, he's been questioned, he's been cleared of any wrong doing, he is the most GIVING , CARING HIMAN BEING I KNOW! Shame on you for throwing names out there...

Michelle Hines said...

This is my husband your accusing, a LOVING, KIND, GENEROUS SOUL... yes, he drinks, a lot of people do, he gave someone he knew a RIDE, IT DOESN'T MAKE HIM GUILTY OF MURDER.... your IGNORANCE is upsetting, he's been questioned, his ex girlfriend couldn't hurt a fly ( she's a friend of mine) , your assumptions and accusations are hurting someone's reputation, until you find proof of anything, KNOW THE FACTS.... nobody's name should be on social media.... I understand you need someone to blame, I understand you want answers, but the last person seeing someone missing doesn't make them GUILTY of a crime, I hope and pray this never comes back on you when helping someone, because you've made it clear that helping a friend in need doesn't pay!!!

You are making a judgement call, listening to rumors, My husband was the last to see him, he gave him a ride, dropped him off where Gene asked to be dropped off, don't accuse or assume... My husband fed him, clothes him, helped him every chance he could, and for you or anyone else to accuse him of foul play is ignorant on your part. My husband is kind, loving, GENEROUS, and gives things away because he knows what it's like not to have, do not judge someone unless you have FACTS.... he gave Gene a ride, he wouldn't hurt anyone... Definitely not who your portraying him to be. Your IGNORANCE is obvious... God is the only one to judge... His own mother dropped him off to hitch a ride with 20 bucks... Nobody is accusing her or judging her, don't judge my Husband....
