Port Logan Woman

You can help identify a woman whose body was recovered from the high tide line on Port Logan beach, Dumfries and Galloway on 22nd November 2006. We are referring to her as Port Logan Woman, but in life she would have had a name. We would like your help in returning this to her.

Port Logan Woman was between 4’11” and 5’4″ tall and between 30 – 50 years of age in 2006, although she may have been older. She is believed to have been in the water for up to 6 months so she may have gone missing in the spring or summer of 2006.
While Port Logan Woman was found in south west Scotland, it may be that she had lived in, spent time in, or had travelled to or from Ireland.

Have you lost contact with a woman who was between 4’11” and 5’4″ tall and between 30 – 50 years of age in 2006?

Is there a friend or relative that you haven’t from who may have gone missing in the spring or summer of 2006?
