Police can confirm public assistance is no longer required in identifying an elderly woman being treated at Sunshine Coast University Hospital since September 6.
The woman recently began speaking with police and has clearly indicated she is aware of her identity and does not wish to disclose this information for personal reasons.
For this reason, police are requesting the public and the media respect the woman’s privacy as per her request.
As no criminality has been detected, police have ceased involvement in this matter and the woman will be left in the care of Queensland Health.
Police would like to sincerely thank the local community and the media for their ongoing concern and support since the woman was first located at Nambour Hospital on September 6.
