Woman Found Dead By Fisherman At Boat Ramp Identified As Devora Howard

Investigations continue after a woman's body was found in water on the NSW Central Coast.

A crime scene was established about 150 metres north of the Terrigal Haven boat ramp after the body was found by local fishermen early on Tuesday morning, police say.

The woman is yet to be formally identified but on Wednesday media reports named her as 56-year-old Devora Howard.

Howard's Doberman dog alerted a personal trainer in a nearby park that something was wrong and he contacted authorities.

Neighbours say she frequently walked her dog in the morning.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner and police have appealed for anyone with information to come forward or contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
