Relatives of a man who was found in a park suffering from severe amnesia came forward and helped identify him as Lithuanian Alvydas Kanaporis, 22, the 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, the trust has been contacted by his relatives. They have helped us establish his name.
We have, of course, spoken to the patient, and this will give our work with him a new focus.
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.

Cambridgeshire Police confirmed he was not known to officers and did not match any missing persons reports.
An amnesia sufferer who had been unable to remember his own identity after being found in a Peterborough park has been named as Alvydas Kanaporis, 22, originally from Lithuania, following an appeal, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust said.
A man who cannot remember his own name has spoken of his torment as he struggles to recall any details of his life.
Robert, the name given to him by doctors, was found in a park in Peterborough suffering from severe amnesia.
"The last few weeks have been truly horrible. I go through so many different emotions. At times I am angry, frustrated, depressed, lost and confused. I just need to find out my name and I hope someone out there will recognise me and help," Robert said.
Doctors say there has been no improvement in his condition since he was found two months ago, prompting an appeal to identify him.
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."
