Croc attack fear grows after discovery of remains

Croc attack fear grows after discovery of remains

Clothes, a walking stick and what's believed to be human remains have been found beside an isolated Port Douglas creek near where a 79-year-old grandmother went missing.

.

Her granddaughter Isabella Eggins posted on social media late yesterday, saying the family believed she had died "in tragic circumstances".

Searches continue for Cameron who was possibly carrying a walking stick when she went missing, police said.

"Because of the proximity of these items and this unknown material located near this creek bank, we can not rule out the possibility of a croc attack", Acting Inspector Ed Lukin told reporters at a news conference.

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

It is feared that Canberra woman Anne Cameron has been killed by crocodiles in far north Queensland.

"We continue to search that area in the hopes we do find her alive".

The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection are confident of catching the crocodile responsible

"We would like to sincerely thank the police, SES, fire brigade and everyone in the Port Douglas community who helped us in the search for Anne".

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.

Her disappearance sparked a widespread search, as she suffered from dementia and had wandered away on a previous occasion.

He said Department of Environment and Heritage Protection officers would patrol the area tonight "in the event that there has been a croc involved in this missing person".

Police have found clothes and other items of interest belonging to Anne Cameron at the end of Four Mile Beach, at Port Douglas, Australia, and have sent them for forensic testing.

The woman was reported missing from the OzCare aged facility.
