KauaI police released this sketch of a woman who has not yet been identified after her body was located in waters off the Na Pali Coast on Wednesday afternoon.

Kauai police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the body of a woman found Wednesday afternoon in waters off the Na Pali Coast.

Police do not suspect foul play in the woman’s death.

The woman may have fallen from the Kalalau Trail into the ocean below, police said.

The woman is described as in her 30s, Caucasian, with brown hair and blue eyes.

She is about 5 feet 5 inches tall, approximately 130 to 140 pounds, with a green tattoo in a braided rope pattern around her right ankle, police said.

Individuals riding a personal watercraft along the Na Pali Coast in an area known as “Space Rock,” spotted the body floating in water about 20 feet from a rocky shoreline.

They brought the body on the watercraft to Kee Beach at about 2:50 p.m. Wednesday. Lifeguards at Kee Beach performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but she was presumed dead upon arrival, police said.

She was taken to Wilcox Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

An autopsy revealed she died of blunt force trauma, consistent with a fall from a height.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Chris Calio at 241-1683 or police dispatch at 241-1711.
