The woman has been identified by her brother and by a Baltimore City Police Officer as Desirae Marbury of the 3200 block of Barclay Street.

Original Release (January 25, 2018 8:02 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are asking for help in identifying a vulnerable adult woman found at a bus stop in Gwynn Oak Tuesday evening.

Medics were called to a bus stop at Essex Road and Liberty Road around 6 p.m. Tuesday night for a woman shivering in the cold, wearing only a sundress and tennis shoes, nearly hypothermic. Police were called to the scene when the woman was unable to answer any questions or identify herself. After two days she remains unidentified, mostly non-communicative although she appears able to speak, stating "I don't know" when asked who she was. Doctors at Northwest Hospital and Medical Center have not been able to determine any possible medical reason for this. Police now need help from the public to identify her and get her back home where she belongs.

The woman is a black female, approximately 25-35 years old, approximately 115 pounds, of small stature. She has a tattoo on her left upper arm of a heart with an arrow through it, with the initials "P.H." inside the heart. She was wearing a brightly multi-colored sundress with tennis shoes. She had a black fleece Columbia jacket with her but she was not wearing it.

Anyone who may recognize her or has any information on her identity is asked to contact officers at the Woodlawn Precinct at 410-887-1340.
