The Lake County coroner’s office is asking for the public’s help in finding the family of person who was found dead Tuesday in northwest Indiana.

The unidentified, 205-pound, 6-foot-1, Hispanic male was found on Dec. 19 at 6051 Hemlock Ave. in Gary, according to a statement from the Lake County coroner’s office.

He has a tattoo of a cross with the names Ricardo, Chandler, Aerial and Kyle on his back left shoulder and the word “PIZANO” tattooed on his abdomen, the coroner’s office said.

The male was wearing a 4XL gray T-shirt with “self made, self paid” printed on it with a picture of President Abraham Lincoln, gray gym pants, black boxer briefs, black sweat pants, white socks and gray Reebok gym shoes, size 11, the coroner’s office said.

Anyone with information on the male is asked to contact the coroner’s office at (219) 755-3265.
