Police interview walkers
DETECTIVES are still working to put a name to an Oriental woman whose body was found on a Yorkshire Dales mountainside three years ago this week.
And they still seek help from the public in identifying the stocky woman found lying in a stream on the slopes of Pen-y-ghent. The cause of the woman's death is not yet clear.
Detectives believe the mystery woman may have been a visitor to the area and want to hear from anyone who remembers seeing her. Detective Inspector Pete Martin, who has headed the investigation which began on 20 September 2004, said: "We know an enormous amount about this woman - apart from her identity. We know what she looked like, the kind of upbringing she had, even her medical history, but we don't know what brought her to the North Yorkshire Dales three years ago."
Detective Inspector Martin said: "Our efforts to put a name to this poor woman have spanned the world and will continue, and we are seizing this chance to continue our enquiries and to appeal for help in identifying her. Someone must know who this woman is and I believe there may well be someone who knows she is missing. All they have to do is call us.
"We owe it to her to find her name and to notify her family. She must have a family, friends, perhaps a partner - maybe even a child - and we need to find them. She has a name and an identity, and I need someone to come forward and restore them to this unfortunate lady."
