Update: Vancouver Police are able to identify unknown woman by tattoos

VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Police Department, through tips from the public, were able to identify a previously unidentified female with two specific tattoos involved in a serious case.

Police have not yet said if the female is connected to the unidentified body found earlier today, along the Columbia River shoreline near the Interstate 5 bridge in Vancouver.

Police say the woman they identfied is approximately 20 to 30 years old, with brown hair and gray or light-colored eyes who is 5-foot-3-inches tall and weighs approximately 125 pounds.

They released pictures of two distinguishing tattoos on the woman’s body — one, of a Seattle Seahawks emblem is on her right forearm and the other, a fairy with a flower, is on her right shoulder.

Vancouver Police detectives would like to thank all who called in to 9-1-1 and the Vancouver Police Tip Line with information in this case. According to information from the police, due to the nature of the case, the female’s identity will not be released at this time.
