Greater Manchester Police say they've now identified the woman found dead under a car in Coniston Road, Stretford yesterday.
The force said she's was 76-years-old.
Her family have been informed.
Police are appealing for help in identifying a woman who was found dead on a road in Greater Manchester.
The body of the elderly woman was discovered underneath a car on Coniston Road in Stretford yesterday morning.
Police believe there are no suspicious circumstances and an investigation has been launched to find out who she is.
The woman is described as white, of slim build, between 65 and 80 years old, has brown greying hair, false teeth, was wearing khaki green trousers, a red fleece, grey jacket, three gold coloured rings and a gold coloured necklace.
She also had a Yale Mortice key, two trolley tokens, one with a four leaf clover, the other with the Irish flag and a horse shoe charm.
“We are working to establish how the woman came to be underneath the car and find out her identity. What we do know is that the car she was under was not involved in any type of collision and we do not believe any third party was involved in her death.
“We have checked the register of those missing and the lady does not match any of their descriptions. Obviously, we are desperate to not only find out who she is but also who her next kin are so we can let them know of the sad news. “I would ask anyone who may recognise the description of the woman or who may have seen her walking in or around the area of Coniston Road last night or early this morning, to call us.”
- Anyone with information should phone police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

As anti-fracking protestors left Poulton-le-Fylde for Blackpool earlier we gathered opposing views on shale gas exploration in Lancashire.
Hidden cameras have captured some of the first moments of three rare tiger cubs at Chester Zoo.
The tigers were born to eight-year-old Sumatran tigress Kirana on Jan 2 after a 105-day pregnancy.
We’re thrilled to kick off 2015 with these special arrivals.
"These tiny triplets who, in June, will move to a brand new home in our Islands zone, are now part of a safety-net against the population in the wild becoming extinct.
"That to me is incredibly humbling."
The sexes of the cubs will not be known for some time and zoo staff are continuing to keep a close eye on the family.

Anti-fracking campaigners are staging a 'funeral march' for Lancashire saying that a go ahead for the controversial procedure would amount to death for the Fylde countryside.
The fracking firm Cuadrilla has applied to explore two sites at Little Plumpton and Roseacre Wood for shale gas.
Councillors are due to make a final decision on the planning application but a report earlier this week by Lancashire County Council recommended rejecting it.
Organisers say the march will be from the stocks in the centre of Poulton Le Fylde at 10am walking to Blackpool.
Cuadrilla has said any issues raised in the report can be resolved.
