Remember that boy who emerged from the forest near Berlin last year? He claimed he and his father had lived wild for 5 years after the death of his mother and when his father had died in a fall he made his way to civilization. He conveniently claimed to have lost his memory so could tell the authorities very little about himself.
I did a post about him at the time and included an article about a wild girl found in the forest in 1905 so I thought I would add this follow-up after finding a new article about him.
The boy had refused to have his photo published at the time which made it hard for his story to be verified or his true identity to be discovered. In this last week though his photo has been published and apparently he has been identified as a 20-year-old Dutch man who left home without a word nine months ago.
As he was an adult he was naturally able to leave home without a problem, I wonder what personal circumstances drove him to make up such a story?
