Independence police say a man who was found Friday near Interstate 70 and Little Blue Parkway has been identified as a man from Washington state.

The man, identified as Christian T. Frye, 42, had suffered from memory loss and was taken to a local hospital. He told police he thought his name was Christian Frye and that he was Washington, and that was confirmed Monday.

Police say notices on media and citizen response to those helped identify Frye.

He has been released from the hospital and is receiving care at another facility in the Kansas City area.
