    Interesting!
    "Igor Bilokurov went missing in Afghanistan in 1988 while he was a Soviet soldier. Originally from western Ukraine, his 78-year-old mother thought she'd never see him again and had given up hope. She even had a gravestone made.
    But earlier this year a man with some physical similarities to him approached a group of Ukrainians travelling in Afghanistan. Saying he suffers from memory loss, possibly as a result of injury, he claims to have no recollection of being Igor, but says he comes from the same part of Ukraine."
