Not only that ! I used to argue with a guy in USA about this . According to him this is the case . On further inquiring, it appeared that he believed different hominids evolved to be become different human .....
I thought this was an indication that (and not just in Morocco ) some came out of Africa at earlier times, and left a trace behind , but those people died out. That is, in a way, the exit was not a long term success .
The history of the origins and spread of corvids may provide a parallel to our origin and how we spread, and provide a rough, very rough, model for us to use. Corvus - Wikipedia
I've found over the years that we can overlook examples from other forms of life due to our arrogance and belief, by some, that we are "separate" from all other animals.
Human expansion model is that of Paleotropical flora and fauna, more specifically African. During warm periods, hyenas, lions, elephants, apes, hippopotamus, rhinos etc moved north following favourable conditions of temperature, vegetation and water availability.
In cold times, adequate areas for them in the Palearctic realm got restricted, so animals envoled diversely in these hotspots of diversity and, if possible, adapted to colder conditions. A new cycle of warm conditions triggered the expansion of African fauna again, replacing or mixing with existing species in northern areas. Human evolution responded to these cycles of Paleotropical biota until Homo sapies developed agriculture and animal husbandry
