Fresno police are seeking the public's help in identifying a woman who was found wet and mostly naked, walking down a road near a lake outside Fresno early Tuesday morning. The woman says her name is Joanna, and that she's a mermaid, but authorities say she did not seem to know who she was, and answered most questions with "I don't know," as KTLA reports.
She was first seen walking in the middle of the street on Millerton Road (Friant Road) about a mile south of Table Mountain near the Eagle Spring Golf & Country Club, which has a small lake in the middle of it.
"She was wet, she said she had been in the lake, said she needed help and needed to be taken to the hospital," said Fresno Police Lt. Mark Hudson, speaking to Fresno NBC affiliate KSEE. When police ran her fingerprints, they came up with nothing, and now they're hoping someone might recognize her and help them get her home.
As Fox News notes, the woman does have two webbed toes on each foot, which could have led to her having some sort of mermaid nickname? She stands five feet, four inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, with brown hair.
She remains unidentified and anyone with information about who she is should call (559) 621-2455 or email the Fresno missing persons unit, Detective Paul Hill, at [email protected]
