Mystery woman found in Dublin is from Australia


A woman at the centre of a worldwide police appeal after being found in Ireland – confused and virtually unable to communicate – has been identified.

The blonde woman, who spoke little English since being found in Dublin a month ago, is a 25-year-old from Australia.

She may have been in Ireland to visit relatives; her last known whereabouts was when she left them to travel.
