    Ms. Baldwin, I enjoyed your poignant story about Benjamin Kyle, the who is suffers from amnesia. Mr. Kyle said that he is, "64-years-old, which I found strange that he would make such a declaration considering that he has no recollection of his past, and no one has come forward to say that they know him. I wasn't sure if you picked up on that comment.

    Thank you

    I'm confused. Why has no one come forward and ID this man. Just think about not knowing who you are. Imagine not knowing your past.
    What a depressing story. I wish him the best. Great Story!
