Amnesia Victim's Identity Sought

San Diego police are seeking information that will help determine the identity of a man with amnesia who has been in Las Vegas since February and may be from San Diego.

Police spokesman Bill Robinson said the department was contacted earlier this month by the Mental Health and Mental Retardation division of the state Department of Human Resources in Las Vegas.

Authorities there said that certain recollections of the man, who is being called Tyler Doe, have led them to believe he may be from San Diego.

The man told Las Vegas medical personnel he remembered an address in the 8600 block of a street called Hurlburt.

"Although that is a common address, one of the missing-persons detectives went out and showed the picture to neighbors, but no one recalled the man," Robinson said. The detective also visited the specific address the man had given, but the photograph was unrecognized.

The man, who was found wandering in the downtown Las Vegas area, showed no signs of having been injured, nor had he been involved in any sort of disturbance, Robinson said.

He is described as about 25 years old, with medium-length, curly brown hair and hazel eyes. He is 6-foot-1 and weighs 180 pounds.

Anyone who believes they may have information about the man is asked to contact the missing-person's unit of the San Diego Police Department at 531-2277 during business hours, or 531-2000 during non-business hours.
