The unknown woman is believed to have fallen from the 21st floor of Wembley Point, a triangular office building now known as the WEM Tower London, into the River Brent on the morning of Friday, 29 October 2004.

The identity of a young woman found at the foot of a tower block in northwest London exactly 18 years ago could finally be solved, investigators hope.

Locate International, a UK charity dedicated to solving missing person cases, has released a new image of an artist’s impression of her in a bid to help identify her.

Witnesses had seen the woman distressed in a lift in the building, and she was later seen in a cafe on the top floor.

Her body was found just after 9 am, she has since been buried in a common grave with no name.

The woman was black, aged between 20 and 40, and was between 5ft 1in and 5ft 3in tall.

According to Locate International, she was wearing a maroon bomber zip-up jacket with fabric cuffs, made from a shiny plastic material.

Locate International is calling on those who worked in the tower block at the time to come forward.

Dave Grimstead, founder, and CEO of the charity said: “The only thing we don’t know is who Wembley Point Woman is, or how she came to be at that location at that time.

“If you have any information that might help – no matter how small – it might be crucial to finally solving this sad case.
