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

CLOTHES and "biological matter" believed to be human remains have been found beside an isolated Port Douglas creek where it is feared Anne Cameron may have been taken by a crocodile.

The items were found nearby a crocodile-infested creek about two kilometres from the aged care home in Port Douglas, where Ms Cameron went missing on Tuesday afternoon.

The woman's granddaughter Isabella Eggins posted on social media that the family "have the firm belief that my nan Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances".

'We believe she's wandered in there and gotten lost, it's our theory that she's become disorientated and walked through that area'.

"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.

"We strongly suspect now that there has been involvement of a crocodile attack", Acting Inspector Ed Lukin said.

"Those items are now being tested in Cairns and we expect to see results tonight or tomorrow".

EARLIER: Fears are held that an elderly woman missing near Port Douglas may have been taken by a crocodile. Of course as the days progress that option will diminish and as time goes by we will continue to reassess our searching options.

Mrs Cameron was known to suffer from dementia, and her disappearance sparked a major search operation.

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

Fellow resident Judith Wright said she saw Ms Cameron walking towards the facility's administration building shortly before 4:00 on Tuesday, the day she disappeared.

NSW woman Cindy Waldron, 46, was dragged underwater during a late-night swim with a friend, who tried in vain to save her, at Thornton Beach in Queensland's Daintree National Park.
