Toronto police say they will soon identify a mystery woman who showed up in the city three months ago, claiming that she could not remember who she was.

A news conference has been called for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, at which time Det. Roger Caracciolo will provide the media with new details, including the identity of the mystery woman known to date only as "Linda."

The story of the woman began in September, when she showed up a downtown homeless shelter. She was carrying few possessions and no identification.

Since police learned of her story, they had made public appeals for information about the woman who apparently could not remember her name or her prior life.

Last month, police were said to be seeking a DNA test to determine if the woman in Toronto was actually a person who was reported missing from Delaware.

At one point police investigated whether the woman had a possible connection to Halifax.
