Tasman Police seek assistance to identify deceased woman

Tasman Police are appealing for help from the public to identify a woman found deceased near Charleston yesterday.

The woman was found by a member of the public yesterday afternoon, at the base of a bluff, a short distance from a local walking track south of Constant Bay.

Police have not received any missing persons reports for a person matching the description of the deceased woman, and we have so far been unable to identify her.

We are hoping someone in the community may be able to help. Given the recent long weekend, it is also possible this person was a visitor to the area.

The woman is believed to be in her 30s to mid-50s.

She is wearing grey/pale blue ¾ leggings, and a floral top (fabric pictured), under a dark blue top. She is also wearing grey sneakers (pictured).

Police have not located any vehicles in the vicinity, so believe the woman may have walked from an address in the wider Charleston area.
