    I don't think this case has ever been posted here, and it seems very sad that police have worked so hard to identify this poor lady over the years, and haven't had a single lead. Someone, somewhere in the world is wondering what happened to her. Maybe WSers can help? She was found in England, but this case stretches across the globe.

    Pennine Woman was found by walkers in a mountain stream beside a pot hole on Sept 20th, 2004. Probably washed down from further upstream. The Pennine Way is a natural area in the Yorkshire Dales in England, very popular with walkers and hikers. She was somewhere between the villages of Pen-y-ghent and Horton.

    Pennine Woman had been there 1-3 weeks, so that puts her estimated date of death between August 31st and September 14th, 2004. Cause of death never established.

    She was wearing green, Marks and Spencer (UK Store) jeans, UK size 12 (US 10), a white bra and black underwear. A white and turquoise, horizontal striped t-shirt was laying near her body. No shoes, jacket or bag was found.

    Accessories: Plain, 22 carat gold band on wedding ring finger. Made in Thailand, ladies' size L

    Experts have determined she was of 'Oriental' ethnicity, originating in South East Asia somewhere, possibly China, Korea, Thailand or the Phillippinnes.
    Estimated age: 20-40
    Weight: 10 stone (140lb)
    Height: 4'11" (growth possibly interrupted by measles in childhood)
    Hair: Dark brown, shoulder length
    Pierced ears but no earrings worn
    Probably right-handed
    Previous pregnancy
    Had contraceptive coil at time of death
    Dentals: Available. Noticeable gap between LOWER front teeth
    DNA: Available
    Fingerprints: Available

    Specialist services police have already used include an
    Anthropologist
    Odontologist
    Entomologist
    Jewellry expert

    The wedding ring she wore was very old and worn. As it was made in Thailand, I'd say the likelihood is, this UID is from Thailand originally.

    Only place I could find a reliable missing list in a language I can read was on Interpol, which I'm sure they have already checked against, but I went ahead and checked all countries of SE Asia, and even beyond a bit, and didn't come up with any matches. :(

    The Thai missing website was all in Thai, with no translate option - my chrome browser on iPad doesn't have the option to translate, perhaps someone else can?

    Backtohome.org was the Thai missing website, forgot to include that.

    A pub/restaurant I go to sometimes is run by a Thai family. If I think on next time I'm in I'll show the picture and see if they have any suggestions.

    That's an excellent idea. I was just going to post that we really could do with a Thai connection here. If they just have an idea where we could forward the info, that would be great.

    I have the translated website, but it's not very clear if the mirror foundation database has been closed down or not, to me. If I can work out how to contact them, I was thinking it might be worth sending them a link to the appeal, just in case.

    I think we may have some members here who are based in Thailand, but I don't think they're likely to drop in on a Yorkshire case. I should have put 'possibly Thai' in the thread title.

    I vaguely remember this being in the news back in 2004 but have never heard or seen of anything since. So sad.

    Her UK Missing Persons Bureau page has a different picture and photos of her clothes, I do not know how to show them within the post.
    Hair listed as "Very Long" yet from the sketch's I wouldn't say it was even long?

    (This site wasn't running when this thread started so just wanted to bump it with the page)
