Mystery woman on Croatian island to be ID'd using AI as she can't remember her name
The Police Department in Croatia is using AI to identify a woman that was found on an island who speaks perfect English but cannot remember her name. She had no passport, papers, or phone and was dehydrated and emaciated when she was found. Experts said she had survived several nights despite bears prowling nearby.
Krk Island Police have reportedly been speaking with international AI experts about running her picture through global databases in the hopes of finding a match. Investigators are also hoping to use open source social media to help identify the mystery woman. According to sources, her accent drifts between "professional English" and Eastern European - making it nearly impossible to establish her nationality. So far there has been no positive ID. Over the weekend a fisherman came across the bloodied woman, in her 60s, waving and immediately called rescuers. A 14-strong team were forced to use 4x4s and then walk two miles across jagged rocks on the island in Croatia. The blonde woman told them she had no idea how she got there.

Officials in nearby Rijeka said she was so weak she could barely take a sip of water. The woman, 5ft 4in with shoulder-length hair, is still being treated in hospital. A local told news site 24Sata: “It’s weird that she was looking in the area at all. It is an extremely inaccessible part of the bay with terribly sharp rocks literally razors that cut the rubber on your shoes.
“There is no life or animals except maybe wild boars or bears which know how to swim to here in search of food, but this is a rarity because there is no food, nothing. "A woman that age certainly could not swim that distance, it needs exceptional strength.” The isle of Krk covers 157 square miles and has a population of around 17,000. It is connected to the mainland by a bridge and is the largest island in the Adriatic sea. In 2005 a person dubbed The Piano Man was found wearing a dripping-wet suit and tie on Sheppey, Kent.
He remained silent for weeks and was put in a care home where he drew a grand piano. He was later identified as farmer’s son Andreas Grassl, 27, and was returned to his family in Bavaria, Germany.
