In 1994, a 13-year-old, blond, blue-eyed boy Nicholas Barclay vanished without a trace from his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Then, three years later, a brown-haired, brown-eyed man with a unusual accent showed up. And he claimed to be the missing teen. But that’s just the beginning. Because this is the insanely weird and story of the French imposter and identity thief who kept a family fooled for six months.
On June 13, 1994, 13-year-old Nicholas Barclay had been playing basketball with friends near his San Antonio, Texas, home. When the game was over, he used a payphone to call for a ride, but his uncle, Jason, refused, telling Nicholas he would have to walk instead.
