A mystery woman who speaks excellent English but can’t remember her own name has rocked up on the shores of a remote island.
The puzzling case has left her rescuers baffled as to how she got there with no passport, papers or phone.
Believed to be in her 60s, she survived several nights on the Croatian isle of Krk despite bears prowling nearby, reports The Sun.
A brave team of 14 rescuers used 4×4 cars and trekked for two miles across jagged rocks to save her after a baffled fisherman saw her waving from the land.
Officials from the nearby port city Rijeka say the OAP was so weak she could barely take a sip of water.
Sources claim the woman spoke English “like a professor” – but her nationality is still unknown.
She has blonde shoulder-length hair and is 5ft 4in tall.
A local told news site 24Sata: “It’s weird that she was looking in the area at all.
“It is an extremely inaccessible part of the bay with terribly sharp rocks — literally razors that cut the rubber on your shoes.

“There is no life or animals except maybe wild boars or bears which know how to swim to here in search of food, but this is a rarity because there is no food, nothing.
“A woman that age certainly could not swim that distance, it needs exceptional strength.”
The isle of Krk is the largest island in the whole of the Adriatic sea.
It covers 157 square miles and has a population of 17,000.
Located about 30km from the city of Rijeka, it is connected to the mainland via a bridge.
