SPOKANE COUNTY – The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office along the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NAMUS) have confirmed the identity of the woman who was found in the Spokane River near E.

The woman has been identified as:

Rosalba Robayo Blanco, born on 12/13/1953.

The fingerprints obtained by the Medical Examiner were found to match fingerprints obtained from this individual in California in 1988. Due to the time period that has elapsed since being in California in 1988, it is possible that she may have modified or changed her name.

The Medical Examiner’s Office is asking the public to contact this office or the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office if information is known about this individual, especially possible next-of-kin.
