    An incredible outcome. I'm usually dubious over the notion that someone could be missing for so long because they forgot their identity but this is proof that such a thing can occur.

    Man suddenly remembers who he is, solves his own cold case

    According to some reports, he has schizophrenia, so it could have been a manifestation of his illness.

    Really great news! I've often wondered if something similar might have happened to Jason Jolkowski (head injury, memory loss, left his area, is living somewhere else).

    This story just blows me away. I've never heard any case quite like this. It gives me some hope for other missing person cases and makes me wonder if there are any other similar cases.

    He also had brain injury after having fallen.

    Memory loss can be found in schizophrenia, but is also very prevalent in TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).

    Actually, scientists have more questions than answers about amnesia.


    fwiw, this story reminds me my worst fear ever. I have brain injury since birth, and this story shook me to the core.
    I cannot even imagine how much suffering it is for Latulip not remembering about any of your identity.
    I always carry my smartphone, in the very unlikely case I would forgot my identity. So unlikely, but I prefer not taking any chance.

    I heard about it before, but I don't remember the specifics, sorry.
    However, amnesia of such magnitude is actually rare.
