His name was not crossed out at the time; therefore, he was alive when Thomas arrived. It is unknown what he looks like and is never given a mention besides his name on the wall. Wyck's name was not crossed off after the Griever attacks. It is presumed that he joined Thomas afterward in the escape attempt. However, he is not shown later among the survivors, so he was most likely one of those killed during the escape. It is possible that the name on the wall was simply a joke slipped in by the producer.
