Human remains found where elderly woman feared killed by crocodile in Queensland

Anne Cameron, 79, disappeared from a Port Douglas nursing home on Tuesday, with police unable to rule out the possibility she had been attacked by a crocodile after wandering down to a nearby river.

Searchers yesterday made a grim discovery, finding what police believe to be human remains on the banks of a crocodile-infested creek near the Mowbray River, about two kilometres from the area Mrs Cameron was last seen.

Police later found clothing, a walking stick with her name and human remains beside a crocodile-infested creek near Four Mile Beach, about a mile from the aged care facility.

"We've also located some biological matter which we believe to be human remains, but those items are now being tested in Cairns", acting inspector Ed Lukin said, according to ABC.

The dementia sufferer is believed to have wandered into a tropical forest and become disoriented.

Ms Cameron's granddaughter Isabella Eggins said her family was of "firm belief" her nan had passed away in "tragic circumstances".

"We continue to search the area in the hope of finding her alive (but) because of the proximity of these items near the creek bank, we can not rule out the possibility of a crocodile attack".

The woman's son, Craig Eggins, wrote on Facebook his mother took regular short walks and would ask for help if she got lost, according to the Australian Associated Press.

OzCare facility manager Daniel Robinson told Daily Mail Australia: 'Our thoughts and prayers are with Anne's family and we hope for her safe return'.

The results of the forensic tests are likely to be released today.

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection said wildlife officers were assisting police with the search for a crocodile in the area.

EARLIER: Fears are held that an elderly woman missing near Port Douglas may have been taken by a crocodile.
