Seoul has sent a notice to North Korea offering to repatriate the remains of a woman presumed to have floated to the South via a river that crosses the inter-Korean border, the unification ministry said Friday.

Pyongyang has not yet responded to the offer to return the body, which was discovered with a North Korean badge earlier this year, it added.
