It's just a rumor, but a contact of mine swears someone snapped a camera phone picture of her in Cleveland. Other rumors -- including pictures (really blurry ones) -- place her elsewhere, such as England or New York City. But the Cleveland picture does sorta look like her. Unfortunately, my contact is a raving paranoid and wouldn't let me post it.

Has anyone heard anything that might substantiate any of these rumors?

Which Cleveland? I assume you mean Ohio, but Wikipedia says there are about fifty others around the world. I know sod all about any of them - haven't even visited the British one as far as I know.

England might be a possibility, I suppose - we have 70 million people here, or whatever it is these days, so she might go unnoticed. But I'd imagine documents would be a bit of a bugger in these post 9-11 days.

'fraid not. Still trying to find out if the latest bunch of "Jonathan was on Torchwood" stories have anything in them, so I've not been paying much attention elsewhere. So far I've been through four episodes at 1/16th speed and haven't noticed anyone who looks much like him.

One time event

I don't understand what you mean by one-time event. I believe the movie most associated with False Jonathan Memory Syndrome was The Matrix and that came out in 1999.

And of course there are the claims he invented the internet. That would have been well before 2000. Unless you subscribe to the theory that the inventing the internet rumor is a case of blurring from False Al Gore Memory Syndrome (I personally have distinct memories of Al Gore getting more votes than George Bush in the 2000 election)

The trouble is that many FJMS sufferers, myself included, still have a tendency to think they see him almost anywhere - it's like the initial experience sensitises your brain so that you're more likely to make the mistake in the future. As far as I know there are no new cases, but a lot of the old ones persist.

This time round it looks to be bogus anyway - no other reports, and a lot of FJMS people have been looking.

It occurs to me that this sort of thing could be a vindication of those rumors that the Soviets and others were developing mind influencing devices during the cold war. This sort of false memory would be just what I'd expect to see from a sabotaged, or possibly, malfunctioning device.
