A mystery woman who was found among jagged rocks at sea and spoke perfect English, but didn't know her name, has been identified by pals after online pleas.
The middle-aged woman was covered in scratches when fishermen spotted her and called rescuers in Krk, Croatia.
They launched an international appeal for information on her identity and now friends in Los Angeles have recognised her as Daniela Adamcova, a former Hollywood jewellery maker.
Daniela, 56, is said to be originally from Slovakia and she has worked on Friends as well as being able to call a string of A listers fans of her work. These include Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross and Brigitte Bardot.
She was found on an island 10 days ago by a fisherman and it is believed she had been there for days. She was so weak when she was found that she could barely drink water.
The Sun reported that she didn't even know who she was, or how she got to the inaccessible bit of land that is occupied by bears and wild boar.
She was identified after press coverage of her led to people that knew her. Her friend Kelecic Miriam, a Slovakian woman living in Zagreb, Croatia, recognised her and contacted police, who had already been told who she was by Croatian journalists.
Another friend in California recognised her. Nina Smidt told The Daily Beast the mystery woman was Daniela, known as Dana, and she had worked with her in 2015.

“I recognised the woman in the photo immediately,” Nina said last night.
She was initially spotted by a fisherman the day before her September 12 rescue.
He said: “We saw the woman on the shore in a very inaccessible part. I thought maybe she was on a walk because she didn’t show that she needed help. She didn’t wave, call or anything.
“The next morning we saw the woman in the same place. It was already suspicious to us now. The nights at sea in September are very cool.
“We saw her nervously walking up and down and when she saw us, she started yelling and waving. We approached the shore to see what was going on.”
A local told news site 24Sata: “It’s weird that she was looking in the area at all. It is an extremely inaccessible part of the bay with terribly sharp rocks — literally razors that cut the rubber on your shoes.
“There is no life or animals except maybe wild boars or bears which know how to swim to here in search of food, but this is a rarity because there is no food, nothing.
"A woman that age certainly could not swim that distance, it needs exceptional strength.”
