Fla. man without name appears on Jeff Probst Show

Benjaman Kyle suffers from amnesia, doesn't know who he is

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – A Jacksonville Beach man, who Channel 4 first introduced you to two years ago, is still trying to figure out who he really is.

Benjaman Kyle suffers from amnesia. He was found beaten and left for dead outside of a Burger King dumpster in Savannah eight years ago.

On Wednesday, Kyle was featured on "The Jeff Probst Show," he hopes it's another step in figuring out who he is and why he was left in that dumpster so many years ago.

"I hope I get some reaction, that people will recognize me from the show," said Kyle.


Kyle is still plugging away, trying to find someone who knows who he really is, but admits he can't get too emotionally involved in an effort like this, because too many times, he's come up empty handed.

"It's been since 2004, 7 to 8 years, I dunno. I don't really think anything's going to happen," said Kyle. "But I guess I am kinda hopeful, or I wouldn't be doing these TV shows and interviews."

Shows like "The Jeff Probst Show" give Kyle exposure and keeps his story alive. Kyle said he's not so much worried about his past at this time in his life, as he is his future.

"I guess I'm not content, better than it was two years, um I'm definitely feeling my age, aging quick, my knees hurt all the time," said Kyle. "I'm kind of worried about the future, there's nothing I can do about it but wait for it to happen, but I just try not to think about it, keep busy."

Channel 4 has worked in the past to get Benjaman a social security card, but so far he hasn't been able to.

"I guess I'm a little cynical, since it's been 8 years," said Kyle. "But miracles happen, you never know. Maybe it will."
