A 74 year old grandfather Miguel Angel Gomar De Luna, stunned his family after he was found by police, months after his cremation.
Miguel had escaped from his nursing home and went on a drinking spree, sleeping anywhere he could find on the streets and constantly begging for money. After months of his family searching for him, the police called his family to say they had found a decomposing body that matched his description.
Lucero Gomar Ramos, Miguel’s daughter was shown pictures of the corpse but it was in such a bad state she struggled to recognize her father.
She was told by police that if she did not confirm the body as that of her missing father, they would not be able to release him to the family, forcing her to sign papers confirming his death. Days later he was cremated and his ashes sent back to the family.
Then shockingly on February 24 this year, the family got another call from Police saying Miguel had been found alive.
The grandfather returned to the family home drunk, with bandages around his head from unknown injuries sustained during his months ‘in the wilderness’
A video of the bizarre reunion in Chihuahua, Mexico, released this week shows Miguel saying albeit slurring:
“They thought I was dead, but I just walk and walk.”
Lucero, his daughter said:
“Imagine our surprise when we spoke to police who told us that they had located him on the street, we could not believe it. We thought he was gone.”
It is not clear who the body mistaken for Miguel was.
