Police in Oregon are asking for help identifying a lost and confused woman.
A woman found lost and confused in Oregon last week took a bus there from Spokane, and authorities are asking for help identifying her.
When she was found walking near Albany, Ore., the woman told police her name was Katie Walker and that she had hitchhiked from Maine, according to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.
The woman had no identification and could not provide her date of birth. Police said she is not cooperative “and is not able to assist us in finding out who she is or who her family might be,” according to a news release.
The woman is described as 50 to 70 years old, with blue eyes and shoulder-length white hair. She is 5-foot-2 and 153 pounds. She has a surgery scar on the bottom of her foot and a scar on the base of her neck approximately 4 inches long.
