His mother had given up hope of seeing her son again. 

Last month, a man started to remember parts of his past, giving a name to his social worker. 

Police confirmed with a DNA test that the man with no memory was Latulip, The Waterloo Region Record reported.

Police think that Latulip lost his memory because of a head injury after a bus trip to Niagara Falls. 

He has yet to be reunited with his family.
