Myrtle Beach police released a composite picture of a tattoo Wednesday, that is on the left ankle of a woman whose body was pulled from the Atlantic Ocean near 24th Avenue South Saturday morning.
The tattoo shows an ocean scene with a dolphin.
The Horry County Coroner's Office is still waiting on final autopsy results, but it appears the woman drowned.
Her body was pulled out by a lifeguard after a couple told him they saw a body floating in the water.
The lifeguard performed CPR, but the woman was already dead.
According to Myrtle Beach police, there's nothing to indicate someone caused her death.
Police have already searched a national database of missing persons, but say they haven't found a connection.
The woman is described as being in her late 40s to late 50s, white, with reddish blonde hair, between 5' 3" and 5' 6", and weighing between 170 and 185 pounds.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is also working on a sketch of the woman's face in the hopes of finding someone who recognizes her.
If anyone knows who this person might be, you're asked to call Myrtle Beach Police at 843-918-1382.
