'Eternal' flame for missing persons burning again in Albany

November 09, 2017 07:05 PM

The "eternal" flame at a monument in Albany was out for weeks. However, that changed when NewsChannel 13's Jerry Gretzinger looked into it.

Several people suggested we take a look at the New York State Missing Persons Remembrance, located at Swan Street and Madison Avenue in Albany. What was supposed to be an eternal flame was just a tower of cold stainless steel. The flame that is supposed to signify eternal hope and light for the missing's return home was out. Passersby said it's been that way for a few weeks.

The monument was dedicated in 2006 and was created in partnership with the family of Suzanne Lyall, missing since 1998.

NewsChannel 13 alerted the Office of General Services Thursday and they discovered a malfunction at the top of the monument and got right to work fixing it.

Then, they mentioned Jerry Gretzinger in a Twitter post with a photo showing that the flame is burning once again.
