FORT COLLINS, Colo. — In the midst of yet another spring storm, police found an elderly, pajama-clad man lying in the snow in Fort Collins and are now seeking the public’s help in identifying him.

Fort Collins police said they received reports around 5 a.m. that an elderly man was lying in the snow near the intersection of Garfield Street and Strover Street. The man, who is believed to be in his 80s, was unconscious but breathing. He did not have any identification on his person.

He has since been transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment, and his condition was unknown as of 10:30 a.m.

Police described the man as 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 140 pounds. He is mostly bald with gray hair and was wearing plaid button-up pajama tops and bottoms along with a blue jacket, white undershirt, a gray and white knit hat and brown Rockport shoes.

There are no signs of foul play, according to police, as it appears the man just wandered away from his home. Anyone with information that may help police identify the man is being urged to call the Fort Collins Police department at 870-221-6540.
