It's a form of amnesia brought on by stress conditions to the body. Oprah did a show on it earlier this year. The guy and his new wife were at the airport getting ready to leave for their honeymoon when he had to walk back to the car to get his wallet and never came back.Several weeks later he was found in a hotel and was extremely thin. It took a specialist to diagnose the man with the rare form of amnesia which was brought on by the stress of the wedding and a car accident that one of his friends suffered on the night of the wedding. Basically it was the body protecting itself from further damage.See the link to learn more:http://www.oprah.com/tows/slide/200510/20051020/slide_20051020_284_106.jhtml
I've seen cases like this before too. A guy was on a road trip and got run off the highway somewhere out west in the desert. They found him almost ten years later working in a shelter in Florida. He'd created a whole new life for himself. The people at the shelter had gotten him back on his feet then he started working there and got this whole new identity. I forgot how his family found him but I think he was from the Midwest. He really got around, huh?
