The distinctive tattoos and some of the items of jewellery found on the woman's body.

Police trying to identify the body of a woman recovered from the Firth of Forth over the weekend have released images which they hope will help their investigation.

Passers-by spotted the body floating in the water off Society Road, west of South Queensferry, at around 9.45am on Saturday morning.

Emergency services attended and the woman’s body was recovered with the aid of HM Coastguard.

Her death is currently being treated as unexplained and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal in due course.

Officers are again appealing for information which could aid identifying the woman, and have released more details about tattoos and necklaces found on her body.

Detective Inspector Nick Brookfield, based at Livingston CID, said: “Unfortunately, despite our previous appeal, we have not yet been able to find out who the lady is.

“We really want to let her family know what has happened so she can be brought home to them.

“The woman is in her late 20s to early 30s, is 5ft 5 in height, of slim build with dark shoulder length hair which was dyed red.

“She has four small tattoos in a cluster on her outer leg above her right ankle, the four elements – earth, wind, fire and water symbols – and was wearing three necklaces, one silver with stars and the others thread-like material with pendants.

The tattoos were of the elements.

“At the moment we know nothing about her, where she came from or why she was in South Queensferry.

“She may not be from the area, nor indeed Scotland, however, as said, we have to find out who she is and alert her family.

“If you have any knowledge about who she is, where she was staying or anything about her or why and where she went in to the water, then please call Livingston CID on 101 quoting reference number 1128 of June 13.”

It has been suggested that the nature of the jewellery could indicate the woman was a follower of Paganism, while the tattoos appear to be based on elements used in the Anime film ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’.
