"Chameleon" Exposed

"Bourdin was jailed in the US in 1997 for posing as a couple's long-lost son.
The Texas couple's 14-year-old blue-eyed son had disappeared three years earlier and they travelled to the US embassy in Spain to meet "Nicholas Barclay".
Bourdin convinced them that he was their son, despite his brown eyes and strong French accent.
He lived with them for three months before his deception was exposed by a journalist and confirmed by a DNA test. He was jailed for six years."

And how exactly would you not recognize your own son?
