(Newser) – She says she's a mermaid named Joanna, but California police are now trying to find out the real identity of a woman they found wandering in the middle of the street not far from a local casino, KFSN reports. KTLA notes the barely clothed woman with wet hair was picked up early Tuesday. After she presented her mermaid story to Fresno County officers, they tried to pry more out of her, but she mostly replied, "I don't know" to their queries (except for letting them know she'd recently been in the water).

Oddly, the mystery woman—who's described as being between the ages of 16 and 30, 5 feet 4 inches tall, about 150 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair—does have one other physical attribute cops are noting in their search: She's got two webbed toes on each foot. Please call 559-621-2455 if you can help the Fresno PD. (Another California woman was found wandering in January.)
