BBC Host Asks For Help After Memory Loss
November 9, 2010 at 4:26 AM (PT)
BBC RADIO NOTTINGHAM personality JOHN HOLMES is asking the public for help in reconstructing four hours of his memory.
The BBC reports that HOLMES showed up for work on NOVEMBER 4th four hours after leaving his home at 8:45a (GMT), confused, without any memory of the journey, and injured, with a large bruise on his leg, shoulder pain, and a dent in his bicycle, which was otherwise undamaged. He remembers riding his bike towards a set of traffic lights, checking for cars, and turning left, but has no memory of what came next, how he sustained the bruise and dent, or anything else. He also noted that his bike was, other than the small dent, not damaged, and his clothes were not dirty. Medical tests showed no other concerns and ruled out stroke or heart attack.
Anyone who might have seen HOLMES during his memory blackout is being asked to call the station at (0115) 934 3434.
