“I don’t think anyone that I’ve spoken to has heard of a case like this, other than a story made for TV,” Gavin said.
As per the details specified in a newspaper, Latulip was identified living in a group home, at the time of his disappearance. The profile said he was developmentally delayed and functioned at the cognitive level of a child.
According to the profile, the mystery surrounding his disappearance took its toll on Latulip’s mother. Gavin even said that no one knows, when and how Latulip received the head injury or even knows when his memory began to return.
However, the police official said that, Latulip has much to process. He said, “There’s nerves. You haven’t seen your family members in all these years, and now a reunification process. I think it’s a lot to take in.”
