Police have described her as a middle to late middle-aged woman, 5ft 4in tall and of slim build – about size 10 to 12. She has brown greying straight hair and her left ear has been pierced twice.
The body was partially clothed in blue leggings, black socks and black trainers with a distinct bright pink sole.
Detective Inspector Stewart Dipple said: “We are working hard to identify the woman and are investigating the circumstances of how she came to be in the water.
“I would ask anyone who recognises the description to contact police.
“Also, I urge anyone who may have seen her movements along the coast during the past two months as it is believed that the body has been in the sea for several weeks.
“I am particularly interested to talk to anyone who uses the coastal paths and may have discovered discarded woman’s clothing.”
