Police update: Appeal for help in identifying elderly woman at Nambour

Police have released new information as part of ongoing efforts to identify an elderly woman who was left at Nambour Hospital on September 6.

Following an initial appeal by police, a man self-presented to Nambour station and identified himself as the person appearing in CCTV who drove the woman to hospital.

The man located her in a frail state walking along Brandenburg Road in Mooloolah Valley that morning and offered her assistance.

When the woman was unable to respond to any of his questions regarding her identity or where she was from, he drove her to Nambour Hospital for further assessment by medical professionals.

Since then the woman has been transferred to Sunshine Coast University Hospital where she remains and continues to grow stronger.

Police are still hoping to reunite the woman with family and friends, and in doing so have released a new photograph of the woman as well as a ring in her possession that someone may recognise.

Anyone who may know the woman or have further information regarding the ring is urged to contact police.
