  • Missing Craiglie woman Anne Cameron 79

"We have also located some biological matter which we believe to be human remains and these are being tested in Cairns", Acting Inspector Ed Lukin said on Thursday.

He said police and the SES would continue to search the area in the hope she could be found alive.

Forensic testing is being carried out on the remains to determine if they are human.

"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.

Anne Cameron, 79, was reported missing from an aged care facility near Port Douglas, north of Cairns, on Tuesday.

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

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

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

"I do believe she suffers from dementia, it has happened previously with her and she has sought the assistance of members of the public to be returned back to Ozcare", he said.

A former neighbour of Mrs Cameron said she had moved to Port Douglas from Canberra, where she had lived most of her life, within the a year ago in order to be closer to her family.

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.

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

The remains were found about 2 kilometers from the nursing home.
