A woman taken to a hospital after she was found wandering the streets in Kansas City, Kan., has been identified and reunited with her family.

Officials at the University of Kansas Hospital on Saturday had asked for the public’s help to identify the woman, who was unable to tell authorities who she was.

Someone recognized her from the media coverage, hospital officials said. The family is asking for privacy. The hospital said no other information will be released.
