    Real Bobby was just forgotten about as soon as they found a replacement. No closure for his death or disappearance. That's so sad.

    Imagine if he wasn't Dunbar or Anderson... What if the uncle had the anderson boy, but then endes up losing him and found another boy who looked like him. That would explain why he didn't identify any of the parents as his own.
