Police identify woman whose body was found in Sheffield river

A woman whose body was found in a Sheffield river has been named today by police.

27-year-old Idman Farah was found on Wednesday April 29, in the River Don, close to Warren Street in Attercliffe.

Detectives investigating her death are appealing for help to trace her last known movements. Extensive enquiries have been conducted to find out where she was in the days leading up to her death. She was last seen on Wednesay April 1, when she was seen by her family in the Firth Park area of Sheffield.

At this time, we are treating Idman's death as unexplained and we retain an open mind as to how her body came to be in the river.

There is clearly a gap in our timeline between the family's last sighting of Idman and the discovery of her body in April, so if anybody recognises Idman from the photo and is able to help piece together her movements please do get in touch.

– Acting Det Sgt Iain Martin, South Yorkshire Police
