Grandmother feared dead after Queensland crocodile attack

Queensland Police said they found human remains, in addition to clothing and a walking stick belonging to Anne Cameron, who was reported missing Tuesday from a facility in Port Douglas, Sky News Australia reported.

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.

Cameron was last seen near an OzCare Aged Care facility in Port Douglas on Tuesday.

"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".

It was understood Anne Cameron went for a swim in an area inhabited by crocodiles.

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

Results are expected today from forensic testing on "biological matter" found near clothing and a walking stick after Ms Cameron, a dementia sufferer, went missing from her nursing home.

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".

The Mowbray River is the location of three sizeable crocodiles regularly seen by motorists travelling between Cairns and Port Douglas.

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

Members of the public in the area are being asked to check their property for any signs of her. "Police hold grave concerns for her well being due to her medical condition, her age, the length of time that she's been missing and the increasing temperatures", authorities said in a statement on Thursday.

Clothes and a walking stick with Ms Cameron's name on it were discovered on Thursday at the end of Four Mile Beach.
