Detective Sergeant Nadine Scott at Stranraer said: "Missing person reports across both the UK and internationally have been checked without success.

"The work by the Liverpool John Moores University has provided us with a facial reconstruction of a woman, not a portrait of the face of the person, but a representation of the face based on detail provided from the remains of the body. Other information about the woman would indicate that she was about 4ft11in tall, and about 7.5 stones in weight.

"Her age is estimated to be young to middle-aged. When she was found she was wearing jeans, size 10 and pants which had a 'Harry Potter' logo on them. Anyone with any information which might help us in this investigation is asked to call Police Scotland on 101, quoting the reference number 1241 9 August 2017."
