Police seek help to ID amnesia victim

SALEM — Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman found wandering on a Swampscott beach more than two weeks ago.

The woman has been at Salem Hospital since she was found Aug. 16 by Swampscott police.

"She can't remember who she is," Detective Eric Connolly said. "She believes she's from the Erie, Pa., area and came here by bus."

Salem police have been in touch with Erie, Pa., police. Authorities there have been following a few leads, but nothing has turned up.

The woman, who is suffering memory impairment, believes her first name is Lisa.

The woman had no identification with her.

The woman is black, 5-foot-7, between 125 to 130 pounds, and has dark hair and dark eyes.

Anyone who knows who she is should contact Connolly or Detective Sgt. Stephen Bona at 978-745-9700.
