Modern Mysteries

Real-life 'Jason Bourne' still remains a mystery four months on

Police have been attempting to identify a mystery man who turned up in England last year with no recollection of who he was.
The mysterious individual, who has been described as a real-life 'Jason Bourne', was found by police in Weymouth on Wednesday 28th September of last year.

Wearing a black visor-less motorcycle helmet and two pairs of black trousers, the man - who had an unkempt beard and an eastern European accent - could recall nothing at all about his life, who he was, where he had come from or how he had ended up in England.

Four months later, police are still as puzzled as ever about the man's origins.
"We have been continuing to conduct enquiries to try and establish the identity of this man, which have included contact with Interpol and other partner agencies," said Police Constable Becky Barnes of Dorset Police.

"However, we have still been unable to confirm an identity for this man and he has not been able to tell us who he is or provide any information about where he is from or his family."

Efforts to determine the man's identity remain ongoing.

"Since he was found, the man has been in the safe care of the health service," said Police Constable Richard Symonds, also of Dorset Police. "Unfortunately, he has not been able to tell us who he is or provide any details about where he lives or his family."

"Despite officers having carried out a number of enquiries, including checking missing person reports with other police forces, we are not any closer to establishing this information."

Im not seeing how this guy is anything like JB unless everyone with memory loss is now compared to JB. Seems like a homeless person in bad way. I do have a humble tip for ukpd when you want to try to identify a person who lost their memory have them take off the full cycle helmet before the photo op.

The police have released multiple photographs of the man without his helmet (as well as with his beard shaved).

The most plausible story is that of an homeless guy who found a way to have a warm roof, enough food and healthcare.

I agree...I mean if the officer gently placed a hand on his shoulder and moments later found himself face down on the floor his arm twisted up behind him fair enough.

Must be that i use my phone i click the link in the OP and all i get is the dude in his helmet and a short story i think you wrote no other pix and no links. Edit adding okay, my ignorance i found the source link to the story and pix,  yeah my guess is unlucky homeless guy i dont find it all that odd no one has jumped up knowing who he is, a lot of poor souls are alone in the world.

I can't help feeling that if you enter a country by unofficial means, you'll have less hassle from the immigration service if you're being seen as a mystery medical case, rather than an illegal immigrant trying to circumvent the system. I know that sounds very cynical, but.......

Jason Bourne? So, he has to constantly flee government organizations trying to kill him?
