I don't think that is what that word means...

Police report: "I observed latent footprints throughout the scene which had a distinctive tread pattern."

Latent: present but not visible, apparent, or actualized

    He's probably confusing it with "old."

    The opposite of latent would be patent. If he saw patent footprints, those footprints would be obvious.
