She had grey hair, no teeth, brown eyes with a blue periphery in her iris, and a 15cm scar on her left leg.

She was wearing a string of pearls, a pink bra, a pink corset, blue bloomers and nylon stockings.

No personal belongings were found on the beach.

A picture has also been released of another woman who police believe could potentially unravel the mystery.

The photograph, identified as having been taken in Italy and dated April 10 1961, was found with the dead woman’s police file from 1966.

But there was no explanation as to where it came from or its connection to the case.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
