Police have released photos of clothing in a bid to identify a woman who was found dead near Chorlton Water Park.

The body of the woman was tragically found in the River Mersey at around 11.10am on Thursday 21 March 2024.

But, at the time of writing, police have been unable to confirm her identity and her cause of death has not yet been determined.

Officers are now asking for the public’s help to trace the woman’s next-of-kin, releasing details and photos that may help to identify her.

Police have shared photos of a lime green Primark crop top which is said to be the same as the one she was wearing.


The woman is described as being 156cm / 5ft 1in in height, with medium dark hair.

As well as the mesh crop top, she was wearing New Look Jenna jeans in a size 8, and non-slip style socks.


She had no identifiable items in her pockets or visible jewellery, and her approximate age and definitive ethnicity is not currently known.

Detective Chief Inspector Kulbir Kaur, from Greater Manchester Police, said: “Our work is ongoing to identify the woman and we hope that the description of her – and the image of the top – will help spur the memory of someone who may know her or saw her last movements.

“We are keeping an open-mind as to her cause of death and further enquiries will take place within the coming days and weeks.


“We want nothing more than to reunite this woman with her next-of-kin, so if you have any information at all, please do get in touch with us.

“Even if you think it is something inconsequential, it could greatly benefit our investigation.”
