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

She was officially named by South Yorkshire Police this morning.

The last known sighting of Idman was on Wednesday, April 1, when she was seen by her family in the Firth Park area of Sheffield.

Her death is being treated by detectives as ‘unexplained’.

They have released a photograph Idman in the hope that somebody may recognise her and help the police piece together her last known movements.

Acting Detective Sergeant Iain Martin said: “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 us piece together her movements please do get in touch.”

Anyone with information should call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 367 of April 29 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
