Do you know this woman?

POLICE have released a reconstruction photo in a bid to identify a woman whose body was washed up in the region over two years ago.

On August 9 2017, the body of a female was found washed up on the shore near to Helensdale Cottage, Drummore.

It was found to be badly decomposed and had clearly been in the water for some considerable time.

Police Scotland commenced inquiries and over the following weeks and months, efforts to identify the body were carried out both locally and nationally, however without success.

Last year details of the case were sent to Liverpool John Moores University for a facial reconstruction to be carried out.  This work has now been completed and released to try and help identify the dead woman.

Detective Sergeant Nadine Scott at Stranraer said: “Missing person reports across both the UK and internationally have been checked without success.  The work by the Liverpool John Moores University has provided us with a facial reconstruction of a woman, not a portrait of the face of the person, but a representation of the face based on detail provided from the remains of the body.

“Other information about the woman would indicate that she was about 4’11” tall, and about 7.5 stones in weight.  Her age is estimated to be young to middle-aged.  When she was found she was wearing jeans, size 10 and pants which had a ‘Harry Potter’ logo on them.”

Anyone with any information which might help in the investigation is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting the reference number 1241 9 August 2017.
