Police in Croatia are investigating the case of a mystery woman who is unable to recall anything about her life.
According to reports, the woman, who is believed to be in her 60s, was discovered sitting on the rocks of Croati's Krk island back on September 12th.

Sporting cuts on her face, the woman was able to speak perfect English but did not seem to be aware of what had happened to her or even who she was or where she had came from.

She was taken to a local hospital for treatment, however despite their best efforts, authorities have been unable to determine her identity and are now appealing to the public for assistance.
According to a local resident, the mystery is deepened further still by the fact that she was discovered on the rocks because the area itself is dangerous and inaccessible.

In addition, given her physical condition, there's no way she swam to the island, so it seems that she was either dumped there by someone or had washed up there after falling into the sea.

According to the police description, she is 5ft 4in, has shoulder-length blonde hair and blue eyes. She was found wearing a striped navy blue T-shirt, black trousers and a pink linen cap.

Ripping off is something else, it's no robbery since we don't hold a gun to tourists' heads    Seriously, with the exception of few really overpriced places, I'd say people think Croatia is actually quite affordable.    And thank you for working in tourism, because that's actually hard and frustrating work while it's what fills up our state budget. We'd be dead without you. May your taxes are lower and tourists not missing

A mystery woman found on a Croatian island is believed to be a jewellery maker whose designs have been worn by celebrities. Police appealed to the public for help identifying the woman, who speaks perfect English, after she was found sitting on a remote outcrop on the island of Krk with cuts and bruises on her face and appearing to have lost her memory. Friends claiming to know the woman have now named her as 56-year-old Daniela Adamcova, a Slovakian woman who has lived in both the US and Ireland.

It always disappoints me when these mysteries get resolved. They have a quite prosaic solution. I was hoping, if not for aliens, then for some mysterious occult organization that was performing rituals on this poor soul. Or maybe some distortion of space and time.

Well, no one still knows what exactly happened. Only I don't feel it's right to keep guessing, because it could be - probably is - very personal. The sooner everyone forgets the whole incident, the better for the poor woman.    But if you're looking for aliens, take a look at the island of Pag.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pag_Triangle And here's something you might like:

Yes, I'm familiar with this case and have sympathies for Giuliano Marinković's work (he now dwells in Ireland if I'm correct).  Balkan UFO is also a cool channel. Unfortunately, no hard proof. They always miss to at least take a photo.
