Police have now released photos of a number of tattoos she had on her arms and legs in hopes someone will recognize them.

In a statement, Sussex Police said: “An extensive investigation has been carried out to try to identify her but so far this has been unsuccessful.

“The woman is white, believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, approximately 5’4” and of slim to medium build. She wore a purple sports bra, dark purple athletic leggings, and black Converse boots with the original white trim.
