API - Update a sis_user_id for a user

I have a user for which I'm attempting to update the SIS ID. Initially, I tried to do this through the web, but I'm getting the following message:

 

However, when I search on this SIS ID, nothing is returned. That said, I am certain that this SIS ID was once assigned to the user in question, but was subsequently removed.

 

Enter the API.

I'm looking for help constructing a curl (GET) statement that will return the user to which Canvas thinks is already associated with this SIS ID. Then I would like to construct a curl (PUT) statement to re-attach the sis_user_id.

 

TIA!
