The Mendota Police Department has identified a man who was found in a field Wednesday south of Cherry Street near 7th Avenue. The man was non-verbal and was found wearing only a pair of sweat pants and socks.
Since the message that the police department was trying to identify the man was widely shared on social media, he has been identified and is receiving medical care. Police did not release the man's name or why he was wandering in a field in the first place.
The Mendota Police Department thanked the community for its assistance and compassion.
