Appeal to identify man with severe amnesia found in Peterborough

Do you recognise this man?

There's an appeal for help to identify a man who was found in Peterborough 2 months ago with severe amnesia.

"Robert" as he's been called by staff at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust who are caring for him, has no memory of who he is, his name, age, or where he comes from.

He speaks English, but it may be a second language. He also understands Russian and Lithuanian.

After two months there is still no sign or improvement in his condition and he had now personal details on him when he was found in a park in Peterborough on 18th May.

'Robert" has no physical injuries and is being cared for at the Cavell Centre, which cares for people with mental health conditions.

Dr Manaan Kar-Ray, Clinical Director of Acute Care said. "Amnesia can last for anything from a few hours to a number of weeks.

"Clearly this is very upsetting for him as he cannot recall any details of his life. We have made strenuous efforts to help him with his memory, including taking him back to where he was found, but nothing has been successful so far. Understandably, he is now getting very frustrated."
