Family identifies man who lost his memory
When a man walked into Birmingham's City Hospital on New Year's Day claiming to have woken up on a park bench with no recollection of who he was, nurses decided to call him "Steve".
But the man's name is Robert, and after an extensive appeal for information by the hospital, his family has come to collect him.
A spokeswoman from the hospital said Robert was "fit and well".
Previously, Robert had said he vaguely remembered having a sister and recognised the badge of Championship football team Wolverhampton Wanderers on television. "The only way I can sum it up is like when you're trying to remember the name of a famous actor or film star and it's on the tip of your tongue, but you just can't get it," he said.
"It's like that – but for the whole of my life, everything that's ever happened. I know something's got to have happened but I just do not know what – it drives you mad."
The episode bears some similarity to the case of Andreas Grassl, the "Piano Man". He was a German man found on a Kent beach in 2005 who apparently suffered total memory loss but was able to play classical music.
