Islands1It sounds like someone’s worst nightmare, but it’s actually a true story. A mystery woman was found sitting on rocks on a Croatian island, but she was unable to figure out who she is or how she got there. The island she was on, Krk, is a remote island that’s also a popular tourist destination.

Luckily, this story has a happy ending.

The woman had some minor bruises and cuts when she was found. Authorities pegged her as being in her 60s. She was found with shoulder-length hair and stood around 5 feet, 4 inches tall.

While she spoke English, she — along with those who discovered her — were quite puzzled at the situation.

“She speaks English, but she does not remember her identity,” police officers told CNN. “She is currently located in hospital and is in stable condition.” Unfortunately, the woman had no identifying information on her, but authorities did find a purse nearby.
