The Stanislaus County Coroner's Office is looking for the family of a man who drowned in a Ceres canal last month.
John Rosenberger, a 40-year-old transient from Ceres, died Sept. 13 in the canal near Moore Road and East Whitmore Avenue.
Police said he did not fall into the canal but rather removed some of his clothing, folded it and placed it beside the canal before getting in the water. The current pulled him beneath the surface and under Whitmore Avenue.
Anyone with information about Rosenberger's family is asked to call Detective Talea Martin at 209-567-4480.
