Anatolian people lived in Asia Minor since prehistoric times. They quickly established the Assuwa Empire in 2,300 BCE. According to later sources, this was Atlantis. Let me describe now how I have come to this conclusion. The four sources, in chronological order are the Indian epics Mahabharata, the Iliad, the Timaeus and the Critias. So Plato’s Atlantis was not located in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, but in the vast basin of the Mediterranean Sea. From here, it spread eastward and westward in the 13th century BCE until it occupied the whole then known world. Heinrich Schliemann reached Troy following the Iliad, so it is possible that old legends, if not perfectly accurate, are close to reality, and those who can read between the lines can use them to find where Atlantis used to be. However, it should be noted that at that time no news reports were written, only legends.
