The Kelowna RCMP are looking for help in order to identify a woman found wandering alone.

In a statement, the detachment said the woman, believed to be in her 80s, was picked up by paramedics around 3 a.m. on July 17 on K.L.O. Road.

“The woman has no form of identification on her, and is unable to advise emergency personnel of her name or address,” reads the police statement.

She is described as white, 5’5” and weighing about 100 lbs. She has greying brown hair, an eastern European accent, and a scar on her abdomen.

“The Kelowna RCMP has not received any reports of a missing person matching this description, and we are working diligently to try and determine her identity.”

When she was found, the woman was wearing a thin gold watch on her left wrist and a grey patterned shirt with three-quarter length sleeves.
