A woman has been found in a remote place on the island of Krk, Croatia, who does not remember who she is or how she ended up there.
CNN says the woman, estimated to be about 60, was found on Sept. 12.
The woman, according to local police, is about 165 centimeters tall and has blonde, shoulder-length hair and blue eyes.
At the time of the discovery, he had been wearing a pink hat.
- He speaks English but does not remember his identity, police told CNN.
- He is currently in the hospital and his condition is stable.
The woman was found after a man on the boat had spotted him on the beach and alerted for help.
Fourteen Croatian mountain rescuers had set out in search of a woman on the island of Krk.
Rescue workers reported finding a woman who had mild injuries and scratches and who had lost a lot of weight and was dehydrated.
A picture released by police shows the woman has scratches on her face.
- He could barely take a few sips of water, rescuers had told local media.
- He couldn't walk, so we put him on a stretcher and took him to the hospital.
The British Guardian reports that the woman appears to have been on the island for several nights.
The locals had wondered why the woman had been on the side of the island of Krk where she was found.
- It is strange that he was in that area at all, because it is extremely difficult to get there and the stones there are terribly sharp, they are literally like razor blades that cut rubber from the sole of a shoe, a local had described, according to the Guardian.
The locals had wondered if the memory loss could be due to the woman falling and hitting her head.
However, the cause of female memory loss has not been established.
Now the police are trying to find out who the woman really is.
According to the Guardian, police are touring hotels, campsites and other resorts with a photograph of the woman, hoping someone would identify her.
The island of Krk covers an area of about 409 square kilometers and is home to about 20,000 people. The island is a popular holiday destination especially among German, Austrian, Italian and Hungarian holidaymakers.Keywords:
