Three enormous saltwater crocodiles are said to live in Mowbray River

Three enormous saltwater crocodiles are said to live in Mowbray River

A search and rescue team has found clothing, a walking stick, and "biological matter" suspected to be human remains near a crocodile-infested creek in Port Douglas, north of Cairns.

Her daughter Isabella Eggins, who has helped police and SES with the three-day search, admitted the family were convinced Ms Cameron was eaten alive.

"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.

"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".

Anne Cameron, 79, went missing from her aged care facility.

Lukin said police believed Cameron had wandered into the dense bushland, where she became lost, but it was not known if she had entered the water.

"We located a number of items including clothing which we believe are from the missing person", Acting Inspector Ed Lukin told media on Thursday afternoon. The results of the forensic tests are likely to be ready on Friday.




"The family is devastated and has asked that their privacy be respected at this time", he said.

Ozcare, the company that runs the aged care facility, declined to comment.

It comes just months after a massive 8.5ft saltwater crocodile was caught at Dickson Inlet near Four Mile Beach in Port Douglas in August.

Noel Ramage, 75, drowned when a croc capsized his "tinnie" at Leaders Creek, NT.

A crocodile reportedly tried to drag Peter Rowsell, 19, from a tent by his foot at Palm Creek in the Northern Territory.

Police said the remains found at Port Douglas have been sent for further testing, but there is no indication of foul play.
