A mysterious woman with cuts and bruises on her face and body was found on Sunday on a rock off the Croatian island of Krk, the Guardian reported.

The woman, who appears to be in her 60s, speaks English but has been unable to tell local authorities who she is or how she managed to get to the rock, the report said.

Croatian news site 24Sata reported a fisher first saw her Sunday morning and alerted the police.

The woman has no documents or phone that could help with identification, the Guardian said, and appears to have spent multiple days in the wilderness. She is currently being treated at a hospital in the mainland town of Rijeka.

"It's very strange she was in the area at all," one resident told 24Sata. "It is an extremely inaccessible part of the bay, with terribly sharp rocks, literally like razors that will cut the rubber on the soles of your shoes."

24Sata reported that police are scanning hotels, campsites, and other vacation facilities, showing the woman's photograph in hopes that someone may recognise her.

Krk is one of the largest islands in the Adriatic Sea with a population of 20,000, and it's a popular destination for Europeans, the Guardian said.
