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)

Interviewer: Yes?

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!
