POLICE say they are keen to speak to a woman who helped at the scene of the tragic death of Charmaine O’Donnell at Helensburgh pier a fortnight ago.

Ms O'Donnell, 25, died on Friday, April 23 after reportedly getting into difficulty in water near the pier.

The incident was reported to police at 5.15pm and officers are keen to trace a woman who helped at the scene.

She is described as having an English accent and was wearing a lanyard round her neck.

Detective constable Angela Tipping said: “We believe this woman may have important information that could help with our enquiries.

“If anyone knows her or the woman herself sees this appeal, please call us on 101, quoting incident 2765 of Friday, April 23, 2021.”

A 28-year-old man appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last Monday, April 26 charged with murder.

Jacob Foster, from Helensburgh, made no plea or declaration during a brief appearance in private and he was committed for further examination.

He was granted bail pending a further appearance on a date yet to be confirmed, however it is understood that Mr Foster remains in custody in the interim.
