Public’s help sought in identifying woman’s remains found on Scottish beach

Cold case investigators are seeking the public’s help to identify a woman found washed up on a beach in Scotland 16 years ago.

Human remains were discovered on a beach at Port Logan, Stranraer, in November 2006 and so far, identifying the woman has not been successful.

It is believed the woman may have been from Ireland and entered the water in the Dublin area.

Forensic work has indicated she was aged between 30 and 50, was of thin build and between 4ft 11in and 5ft 4in tall.

She was wearing size 10 black Bay Trading trousers, a white BHS size 34c bra and tan-coloured tights, when she was discovered on Wednesday 22 November, 2006.

The woman was missing her teeth, but may have worn dentures

The campaign to identify her was launched by the Scottish Cold Case Unit at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) and the missing persons charity Locate International.

An updated facial reconstruction image of ‘Port Logan Woman’ was produced last year.

Speaking on the Nine til Noon show this morning, the co-director of the Scottish Cold Case Unit at Glasgow Caledonian University Dr Maureen Taylor has appealed to the public to provide any information they think might be helpful…
