Unconscious Man Reunited with Family
The Alameda Police Department (APD) was able to identify a man who was found in public alone and unresponsive Saturday, Dec. 10.
APD identified the man on Monday, Dec. 12, with the help of a lcaol resident who recognized the man after seeing a photo of him in a news alert. He later notified first responders.
The unresponsive man was identified as an Oakland resident. APD sent out a message on its Facebook page notifying the public they have discovered the man’s identity.
“Thank you to everyone who shared our photo and story,” wrote APD in the post. “The public was instrumental in contacting (the) man’s family and having them get in touch with our investigators.”
No foul play is suspected in the man’s medical condition. He has been reunited with his family.
After discovering the unconscious man, APD transported him to a local hospital for treatment. APD put out a press release with the man’s photo seeking help from the community in identifying him. He was described as an Asian male, between 40 and 60 years old, 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. In the photo, the man appears in hospital garb with a tube sticking out of his nose.
News alerts seeking the public’s help appeared online, in print and on local television.
He was found wearing a black coat, gray and black long-sleeved shirt with “Maserati” written on the left chest area, blue sweatpants with “Answersn” written in cursive down the right leg and brown shoes.
