I've always thought fish guy was faking it. Figured he was trying to get away from his wife or running from something and wanted a new life. I don't remember all the details but generally did not believe him.

Default Black man; possibly dementia related.

In the show's early years there was a story about an older black man who went missing. His family found his vehicle and it appeared he was trying to write down/ recall a loved one's phone number. An update stated a man closely matching his description was located but gone by the time authorities arrived. Was he ever found? Was it a hoax on his part?

That would be Rogest Cain. There were actually at least two instances where he was believed to be located (one in Los Angeles - the city of his disappearance, and one all the way in Topeka, Kansas), but he vanished both times before they could get to him. Sadly, he was never found and he's been missing for 30 years at this point. He would be 91 today and was declared legally dead in 1995. I don't believe it was a hoax, I believed he suffered a sudden medical condition and developed amnesia. A mechanic who repaired his car said he was staggering and his speech was slurred.

This is not to be confused with another elderly black man who disappeared around the same time frame -- George Owens from Nashville, Tennessee. He too appears to have suffered a sudden bout of amnesia and has never been found. He would be 110 or so at this point and is almost certainly deceased now.

I do not believe Sarah Powell's story at all. There was one with the girl who drowned at a swimming lesson, she seemed legit. There was also the little girl Christina in a wheelchair and she just one day came out of her coma... sorry been a long time i'm a little rusty lol

If she didn't have a stroke, the cynic in me would think that Sarah DeGenarro was suffering from some sort of midlife crisis and faking the amnesia. I don't think I ever saw this one before (or maybe I just skipped it since it was sort of a sci-med segment), but after seeing it, it's definitely a believable amnesia case. Here's an article from a local paper that goes into some details about the filming of the segment and some background information.

This is the first one I thought of for this thread as well. This stands out as believable specifically because of the obvious medical cause.

Pierre Aprile is the only male amnesia case subject that I thought was legitimate. He didn't seem out for attention or money, and he wasn't wanted for a crime.

I too think Fish Guy was faking his disappearance. Didn't he and new wife get married a few weeks after meeting? Maybe he was like, look she is a nice lady but I have changed my mind. Just the fact that they parted at the end makes me lean towards that conclusion. Paul Beal? Totally faking it - never believed him. Child support, missing truck - yep he was avoiding responsibility.

This one fascinated me because it was a contiguous chunk of her memories that were lost. She woke up in the mid 1970s thinking it was still 1960, as if she had slept the past 15-16 years.. It seems like when people lose memory, they either lose all of it and can't remember their own name or their family members, or they lose pieces of their memory here and there.

Post Sarah Digennaro Confirmation

Hello. I am Sarah DiGennaro's grandaughter. I happened upon this article googling my grandmother for fun looking for her unsolved mysteries case. She has recently passed on June 10th, 2018 at 81yo. I remember this episode airing when I was 3yo. I can assure you her trauma was legit and the family has suffered the effects of it for many years all the way up through to her final days. Her suffering was real and it effected her life everyday as well as everybody around her. I remember my mom telling me not to bring up when she would act strange while I was around her. There was even a study done at Hopkins on her to try and figure ot out. I hope this clears things up a bit for those curious enough.❤

Thank you for posting! I'm very sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing. I was always fascinated by the segment made on her case. I can't imagine what she must have gone through with those memory gaps. Did anything come of the Hopkins study?
