By making her think he might be dead? In his mind he might have felt this was the "right" thing to do, but I wouldn't say this was well thought out.

Indeed. I think she would have gladly taken a broken heart over thinking he might be dead.

There's no good intentions involved if he faked the whole thing. That's cowardice and cruel.

Not sure if this counts, but I think the fact that UM mentioned a runner seeing a young boy sitting by the bay after Chaim Weist was murdered is pointless. I don’t think he had anything to do with the murder

Laugh out loud. That was so hokey it reminded of a scene from a cheap made for TV movie. The kid staring at the river. Heartbroken.

Seriously.. How many cases has this been the final outcome? And if you drove into a pond, wouldn't you.. You know.. get out of the car? I guess I should be a little more understanding about this.. People tend to freak out.. But it still astounds me that people just sit there and drown in their car.
In one case, two girls were going to a known location where they would have to cross over a bridge and no serious investigation was done for 42 years while there they sat, and might have continued to sit had the river level not dropped somewhat that year.

In another case, a woman actually called 911 while sinking and drowned anyway.

50 years ago this month, Mary Jo Kopechne lived for nine hours in a submerged car and basically suffocated, not drowned, when the air pocket ran out.

Which I have mentioned several times. Either a nut job, just wanted to be on TV, or some girl who'd have had to hear about the case really conned her.

He doesn't ask any questions of the people who could give him the information he is seeking, yet he wastes UM's time asking the same questions he could easily ask his townspeople.

I also agree with the previous poster about the WW2 soldier who met his twin at the train station and then lost his info. We are either to believe that they never exchanged full names (pretty unlikely), or that they did and the soldier forgot his twin's full name within a matter of minutes (even more unlikely). This story seems very fake to me and it would be a real shame if UM sacrificed an unsolved murder or missing person story to air this drivel.
These both aggravated me, the Boumgarden case to the point that I called the telecenter after the show where the operator informed me "people are calling up just furious." I only remember talking to them about two other cases. You would think people making a national TV show wouldn't be so dense or would explain what had already been tried if anything and why that didn't work rendering a UM segment necessary.

As for the WW2 double, he claimed the guy had the same last name so he wouldn't forget that! My parents and I all said, "WHAT?" at the same time during that one! After all, the boys named Vaughn and Vaughan found each other due to remembering the same but differently spelled last names.

How about the exorcism case that involved a team of professionals helping people deal with demons?

Then there were those psychic episodes.

It now looks as if the Allagash abductees were among the more convincing hoaxters.

A side note on these UM amnesiacs: how do they always end up several states away from where they disappeared? You can't even remember your own name and the first thing you think to do is get 2000 miles away on a greyhound?

The only exception I can think of is Kyra from the original 1987 UM specials. I actually believe her, partly because she was found in her hometown.

Although not a pure amnesia cases, I'd add Patricia Carlton and Rogest Cain to any list of legitimate cases. I know there were more complex medical factors, not just the oh I snapped, or got hit by a nerf ball now I don't remember anything but still have skills and can function well enough to seek help while avoiding detection.
