Update 8 October: The Guardia Civil has confirmed the identity of this poor woman with the initials M.W. As usual, the full name is being withheld by official sources.

Original post 6 October: The body of a woman was found earlier today floating in the sea off Palm Mar. The poor woman was discovered by a leisure craft in the area, and the crew alerted emergency services. Little is known at present other than she was around 50 years of age and since she was in swimwear, had no documentation on her. The Guardia Civil is investigating the tragedy.
