Deputies said a mystery woman captured on video ringing a stranger's doorbell in a Texas neighborhood last week has been identified, and is safe with family.

They said her 49-year-old boyfriend had been found dead in a suspected suicide.

In a video recorded on the night of August 24, a barefoot woman - possibly Denison - can be seen wearing only a t-shirt with restraint around her wrist as she frantically rings the doorbell.

She is not being identified due to her status as a family violence victim, but officials confirmed she is safe and with family now.

He told a news conference that the boyfriend had called police and made "suicidal comments".

After reviewing home video surveillance footage, the resident saw a barefoot woman without trousers and what looks like a broken restraint hanging from her right wrist.

Deputies were called to do a welfare check at a home in Sunrise Ranch around 11 a.m. Wednesday after a man had reportedly threatened suicide.

The sheriff's office released the video on social media earlier this week, prompting a flood of tips suggesting the woman was a missing person from as far away as Canada.

According to the sheriff's office, the bell-ringing occurred at 3:20 a.m. on August 24, but by the time the resident awakened to open the door, the woman was gone.

As Click2Houston noted, neighbors said the woman appeared desperate to find help.

"The deceased's girlfriend, a 32 year old white female, who was not on scene when deputies arrived, is confirmed to be the female in the doorbell ring video", authorities confirmed.

He died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The woman has been taken to safety and is no longer in Montgomery County, according to authorities.

"I've got a 9-year-old daughter at home. The investigation will continue".

Police have searched the area and completed door-to-door checks and interviews or homes in the neighbourhood. "We only have one side of the story right now", Lt. Spencer said.
