A Canadian man just solved his own missing persons case after suddenly remembering who he was three decades later.
According to the Niagara Regional Police, the 51-year-old, who has a developmental delay and functions at a child’s level, has spent the last 30 years living under a different name in St. Catharines, around 80 miles from where he disappeared.
After meeting a social worker on January 7, the 51-year-old man suddenly remembered his real name: Edgar Latulip and he was from Kitchener, Canada. Then more memories started to come back.
Latulip provided Police with a sample of DNA to be tested against a relative who was living in Waterloo at the time. A laboratory which confirmed a DNA match on February 5.
Authorities contacted his mother and told her the good news. The Niagara Police Department and local St. Catharines community partners are working to reunite mother and son.
We’re glad he will finally reunite with his family.
