Louisiana kidnapping suspect’s description released by police 

No smiling in the mugshot, please.

San Francisco police are hunting a fat man with awful teeth in connection with the kidnapping of a woman in Louisiana, who was dumped in San Francisco on Sunday.

The disoriented woman told cops she had been kidnapped from a laundry center in Monroe, La., on Wednesday, driven to San Francisco and then booted from the car.

Police described the suspect’s foul features Tuesday, hoping members of the public would spot him and turn him in. He is a white man in either his 40s or 50s, police said.

“Heavy set, big nose, rotten teeth, missing teeth, wearing a yellow shirt and blue jeans,” police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza added.

A security guard called cops after spotting the woman at Filbert and Battery streets around 7 p.m. Sunday. She was suffering from amnesia and transported to the hospital, police said.

Later on Monday, police found the car suspected in the kidnapping, a 2007 black Ford Fusion.

Authorities in San Francisco and Louisiana are collaborating on the case.

Calls to the Monroe Police Department have not been returned. The captain of the police department told a local newspaper Tuesday that officers had yet to speak with the woman.

Anyone with information about the case or the suspect’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
