What can be more shocking than the fact that you are not really you. The life of Paul Fronczak (Paul Fronczak) began sadly — as a baby he was left in a cold parking lot. But this was only the first part of his amazing story, in which the kidnapping, the Chicago mafia, the upbringing of the "wrong" parents, the search for a real family and twin sisters were intertwined. The man found out the truth about his origin when he turned 50, and since then has not stopped searching for biological relatives. Read where his own investigation led him, further in our material.

The police found little Paul in one of the parking lots in New Jersey in 1965. They returned him to his parents, who had lost their way in search of their son — Dora and Chester. The couple were sure that their child had been abducted from a hospital in Chicago a year ago by a woman who posed as a nurse. It was suspected that the kidnapping was organized by the mafia.

The high-profile case attracted the attention of the whole country. When Paul was suddenly discovered, Chester and Dora were over the moon with happiness. But, as it turned out later, the boy turned out to be a completely different kid - Jack Rosenthal. Paul only found out the truth about who he really is in 2015. He decided to get to the truth.

The life of a 57-year-old man turned upside down when he found out that the caring parents who raised him were not his biological father and mother. Since then, Jack, who still calls himself Paul, has been trying to figure out who he really is.

In the 60s, the external resemblance to the missing baby was enough to give the found child to the spouses of the Fronchaks. The parents, desperate in their search, identified their son by the shape of his ears. They had only one photo of the boy, taken on his birthday, before he was abducted. The family could not have imagined that half a century later a DNA test would show that they and the child were strangers.

Paul did not know the story of the abduction until at the age of 10 he found a box with files of newspapers telling about this case. The parents informed the boy that he had been kidnapped, and then by a lucky chance they found him. Nevertheless, growing up, the guy felt that he was different from other family members. In 2012, the results of a DNA test confirmed that he was not the son of the Fronchaks.

With the help of genealogist Cece Moore, the American learned that he was Jack. It was later revealed that he had four siblings, including a twin sister named Jill. She has not been found until now, and only recently did Paul find out what happened to her.

The man found out that he and Jill disappeared after they were abandoned by their biological parents Gilbert and Mary, now deceased. Paul learned the grim truth about how the first year of his life he was in a dysfunctional family of a mentally ill war veteran and an alcoholic mother. One of his cousins said that the newborn twins were left in a "cage" where they were constantly crying.

Paul assumed that his sister had died, but now he is convinced that she is alive. The man is determined to find her. To do this, the American contacted several relevant organizations and submitted a statement on the search for the missing person to the police. He even had a hypnotherapy session and talked to psychics.

During the search, Paul found his biological relatives. They remember the twins Jack and Jill, but not everyone wants to talk about them. The man hopes that someone from his family should reveal the truth about his sister. After the kids disappeared, their parents interrupted communication with relatives.

Unfortunately, after the American learned the results of the DNA test, the relationship with the parents who raised him deteriorated. For several years they didn't even communicate.

In 2013, the FBI reopened the kidnapping case. Six years later, they managed to find the real Paul Fronczak, who was renamed Kevin Baty. Our hero did not meet the real Paul in person, but communicated with him on the phone.

Now Paul is preparing to publish a book called "True Identity". In it, he tells an amazing story of his life. The man assumes that the Chicago mafia was involved in the case of his abduction.

An American keeps a blog and receives hundreds of messages from people who have fallen into similar situations. He wants to inspire people to search for their true identity and is sure that only the truth can make a person happy. Paul is not going to stop the search, hoping that he will be able to find out more about his biological parents, sister and the reason for his disappearance from the family.

Another strange story of the disappearance of children in the United States continues to worry society to this day, although many years have passed. They disappeared from the house during a fire in 1945, and have not yet been found.
