Police are dumbfounded after detaining a mysterious woman with webbed feet who is claiming to be a mermaid. They found her wandering the streets of Fresno, California with no identity and very little clothes. Upon arrest, she insisted that she is a mermaid named “Joanna” but could provide very little else answering most questions with “I don’t know.”
“She was wet, she said she had been in the lake, said she needed help and needed to be taken to the hospital,” said Fresno Police Lt. Mark Hudson about Joanna.
The police lieutenant added that they have checked her fingerprints in the system but came up with no results.

While it’s not clear how old Joanna is, police say she could be anywhere between 16-30, say she is 5-foot-4-inches, weighs 150 pounds and has brown eyes and hair.
