Description

Connie Chung investigates the 17 year disappearance and reappearance of a youth minister from Texas, who began a new life after claiming to suffer from amnesia. Barre Cox vanished in 1984, shortly after his wife had given birth to their newborn daughter. Cox was rediscovered preaching at another church under another name. ABC News Downtown examines the minister's claim of amnesia, the chain of events that took place after he assumed the name James Simmons and the devastating effect his disappearance had on his wife and now 17-year-old daughter.
