Toronto police are asking for the public’s help identifying a body found in Lake Ontario last summer.

Officers say they found the body of a woman in the Scarborough area, about 2.5 nautical miles offshore, on Aug. 28.

They don’t have any evidence to suggest foul play.

She is white, between 40 and 70 years old, five-foot-eight, with a solid build and grey and light-brown hair. She has no noticeable scars, marks or tattoos.

Police have released a photo of a small, silver ring they found that may help to identify the woman.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 416-808-4100 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
