Missing Canadian Man Remembers His Identity After 30 Years

A mother in Ontario, Canada, got a huge surprise when her son, who had been missing for almost 30 years, was found alive. 

Police believe Edgar Latulip, who suffers from cognitive disabilities, got on a bus after disappearing from his group home in 1986. Then he suffered a head injury. “So effectively he forgot who he was,” police said. 

But last month, he started recalling pieces of his identity. A few Internet searches and one DNA test later, and Latulip’s identity was confirmed. 

His mother said she is overwhelmed Latulip is alive. She’s making plans to reunite with her son.
