AURORA, Colo. – Aurora police have identified a man who has suffered from long-term memory loss.

Police reported Tuesday night he was identified as a 23-year-old missing from New Mexico since Thursday. It is still unknown how he got to Colorado, but it appears that he is not suffering from any injuries.

The man walked into a McDonalds at 14251 E. Colfax Avenue Saturday and could not remember anything about his past or his name, said Cassidee Carlson of the Aurora Police Department.

“He had no identification, phone or identifying documents,” Carlson said.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Doctors said they found no signs of trauma or injury.

“His fingerprints were run through the national database but there were no matches,” Carlson said. “He remains at the hospital and still is unaware of his identity.”
