Details of Disappearance

Ryan departed from Bill and Bob's Sports Bar on west 236th Street and White Plains Road in the New York City borough of the Bronx on August 15, 1998. Witnesses inside the bar told authorities that Ryan had been in good spirits during his visit. He reportedly played a game of pool and discussed joining a billiards club in nearby Yonkers, New York.

He left the bar alone at approximately 4:00 a.m. and has never been heard from again. Ryan left all of his personal belongings inside his home.

The bartender of Bill and Bob's, who was the last person to see Ryan before his disappearance, was shot to death inside his bar in 2000. It is unknown if the man's murder has anything to do with Ryan's disappearance.

Ryan resided with his family on Glen Road in Yonkers, New York in 1998. He was born in Kilrush County, Clare, Ireland. Ryan's family relocated to the United States in 1986. His relatives returned to Ireland after his disappearance.

Ryan is a guitar player and is considered to be an excellent musician. His case remains unsolved.
