Could a mystery man help solve the riddle of how a Cornish pensioner plunged to her death near Newquay?
83 year old Rita Dow was found in a cave on Porth beach last month.
Police are trying to find someone called Dave she was planning to meet nearby.
Detectives say there is nothing suspicious about what happened.
She was taken to Treliske for treatment where sadly she later died.
Officers think she may have been due to meet a man called Dave or David on the 29th September at the Mermaid Inn nearby.
A man with dark hair and a distinctive limp was seen outside the pub at around 12.10pm. He was wearing dark trousers, an open shirt and white t-shirt. He may have been waiting for Rita to turn up.
PC Paul Crumpton, based in Newquay, said: “We would like to speak to the man, who was seen outside the pub, as a witness. We have tried to trace him by speaking to residents in the area but have not been able to trace him so far.
“If you were due to meet Rita Dow at the pub on Monday 29 September please get in touch.”
The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file is being prepared for the Coroner. Rita Dow’s next of kin have been informed.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting EN/148208/14.
