Once we were confident it was appropriate, we interviewed the amnesic man found in the park where he was reported missing last week. An excerpt from that interview follows:
Interviewer: You believe you’ve been gone for how long?
Andre: Years at least.
(Pause in the conversation)
Andre: Don’t believe me?
Interviewer: The fact is you went missing a week ago.
Andre: Yes, but I’ve been in…
(Andre trails off; he appeared to be struggling with his words)
Andre: I know the words…but I can’t make myself say it! I know where I’ve been! I’ve been gone for more than a week!
