September 22, 2021 – After 10 days of little news, an official Croatian police statement confirms that the mystery woman on Krk, with no ID or memory of who she is, is aged 57 and from Slovakia. 

Here is the Croatian police statement in full (original here).

In cooperation with citizens and the media, police officers from the Krk Police Station, the General Crime Service and the Reporting Analytics and Public Relations Department of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar Police Administration gathered a series of information that resulted in the identity of a woman found on September 12 on the island of Krk.

It has been established that she is a 57-year-old Slovak citizen.

We remind you that this Police Administration is based on Art. 33 st. 4. of the Law on Police Affairs and Powers, publicly published photos of the found woman, with a request for assistance in establishing her identity, since the found woman could not provide information about herself, and the measures and actions taken by the police since her discovery did not lead to . The mentioned woman had injuries during the discovery, which were determined not to have occurred as a result of a criminal act. The woman was given medical assistance and placed in hospital.

Since the publication of the photos, the police have received dozens of e-mails from citizens from the country and abroad, both from European Union countries and other countries, who wanted to help the police establish the identity of the woman by submitting photos or other information. Also, in addition to e-mail, reports were received in other ways and were checked in detail by police officers using the methods and techniques available to them.

For example, some of the reports received a few days after the photos were published led to the backpack being found, although the things found in it did not help in finding out the identity of the woman found.
Also, the checks in the fingerprint databases of the Croatian police did not lead to the establishment of identity, so Interpol was informed about the found woman and the help of foreign police was requested.
Furthermore, the first of several reports leading to the identification of the woman found was received by police on September 20, in the evening. As it appeared from what was submitted that the found female person could be a citizen of Slovakia, the assistance of the Slovak police was requested through international police cooperation. Thanks to good cooperation and appreciating that it was a matter of urgency, a response was received very quickly from the Slovak police, which confirmed that the woman was identified as a Slovak citizen, aged 57, through a photograph.

The police would like to thank the citizens, from the country and abroad, domestic and foreign media, as well as their colleagues from Slovakia, for their help and cooperation, who contributed to establishing the identity of the found woman.

According to what has been established so far, the Slovak citizen stayed in Croatia as a tourist, and the police will continue to determine the circumstances that preceded her arrival and discovery on the island of Krk, in the inaccessible terrain of Dobrinj.



Police have so far not named the Slovakian national, although most of the Croatian media are reporting her as Daniela A, following a TCN article earlier this morning, which included photos and background information from two sources in California.

Police enquiries into the circumstances of this usual situation will continue.
