The surreal story reminds us of the plot of “The Guitarist Who Came from the Sea”, in which a mysterious Polish boy mysteriously appears to two English ladies. In real life, at least in terms of language, the plot is reversed. Croatian fishermen found an injured and isolated woman on the rocks. She did not remember who she was or where she came from, but she spoke English flawlessly.
The case soon made the news due to the bizarre nature of events and the woman’s condition. The 56-year-old was rescued ten days ago, and soon her photos were widely shared on the Internet, so that her friends recognized her and contacted the Croatian authorities.
And now the detail that lends a cinematic aura to the case: The woman in question is Daniela Adamkova, a former Hollywood jeweler who previously worked on Friends. A native of Slovakia, she was recognized by friends in Los Angeles, where her work was recognized, her creations used by such famous artists as Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross and Brigitte Bardot.
Daniela is believed to have been where she was found more than 10 days ago and has been rescued. The fisherman who found her reported that she was so weak when she was rescued that she could barely drink water. The Sun reports that she doesn’t even know who she is, or how she got to the inaccessible piece of land occupied by dangerous animals like bears and wild boars.
“We saw the woman on the beach in a very inaccessible part. I thought she might have been walking because she didn’t show she needed help. She didn’t wave or call or anything. The next morning we saw the woman in the same place. It was suspicious for us now. Nights In the sea in September is very cold. We saw her nervously going up and down and when she saw us she started screaming and waving. We approached the coast to see what was happening,” said the fisherman.
She was identified after press coverage of her led to people who knew her. Fortunately, her friend Kilicic Miriam, a Slovakian who lives in Zagreb, Croatia, recognized her and called the police, which Croatian journalists had previously told her about. Another friend in California recognized her. Nina Smedt told The Daily Beast that the mystery woman was Daniela, better known as Dana, and she worked with her in 2015. “I recognized the woman in the photo right away,” Nina Smedt said.
A local resident told the 24Sata news site: ‘It’s strange that she was looking at the area. It’s a very inaccessible part of the bay with very sharp rocks – razor blades that cut the rubber of your shoes. There is no life or animal, except maybe a wild boar or bear that can Swimming here for food, but that’s rare because there’s no food, nothing. A woman of this age definitely can’t swim that far, she needs exceptional strength.”
