SAN ANTONIO - This was a story made for the movies.
Thirteen-year-old Nicholas Barclay went missing from his San Antonio home in 1994. Then just a few years later the incredible happened, or so they thought.
“The Imposter” tells the story of Barclay's disappearance, and when he turned up three and half years later in Spain. The only problem? It wasn't really Barclay, but a man pretending to be the young boy.
The ‘new’ Nick duped his family and investigators for months. It took the work of private eye Charlie Parker to crack the case wide open.
“I think sometimes a family can want something to be so bad, that they dream that and they actually look at him and see the kid,” explained Parker.
To test out your own investigative skills, you can catch “The Imposter” at the Bijou Cinema through next weekend. Parker will host a question and answer session Saturday evening at after the 8:15 showing.
