An appeal to identify a young man found in Peterborough with a severe case of amnesia- who had been taken to Wisbech to see if it jolted his memory- has been identified.
Dr Manaan Kar Ray, Clinical Director of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust said: “Following a tremendous response to the appeal to identify ‘Robert’, a patient with severe amnesia who has been in our care for nearly two months, we have been contacted by his relatives.
“They have helped us establish his name is Alvydas Kanaporis, 22, who is originally from Lithuania.
“We have, of course, spoken to the patient, and this will give our work with him a new focus.
Dr Ray said: “However, as I have previously stated, this is only an initial step on what could be a long journey to help him regain his autobiographical memory.

“I would like to thank the public and the media for their interest in this case, but Alvydas has requested he is left to continue his recovery in private.”
Alvydas was discovered at 6am in a public park in the centre of Peterborough on Sunday, 18 May. He told police he had no memory of who he was or how he came to be in the park.
