Spokane Police seek help identifying hospitalized male

The Spokane Police Department is seeking the public’s help identifying an elderly adult male who is currently receiving care at an area hospital. The male showed up to the hospital at approximately 245pm this afternoon suffering from an acute medical event. Hospital staff and law enforcement have been unsuccessful in identifying him or his family thus far.

The male appears to be approximately 65 to 70 years old. He is a white male with gray hair and a mustache. He is approximately 5’9” tall and weighs approximately 210 pounds. He arrived at the hospital wearing a Seattle Seahawks sweatshirt and khaki cargo pants. He was barefoot and has notable deformities on both of his feet.

The male was located wandering on Francis Ave near Lidgerwood St in North Spokane. A good Samaritan provided him with shoes and called 911 on his behalf.

Two photographs of the male are attached.

If you can identify the male or assist with locating his family members, please call Crime Check 509-456-2233 and reference SPD Case #2023-20256392.
