Woman with dementia feared taken by crocodile in Queensland

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

Police in northern Australia fear that a 79-year-old woman may have been attacked by crocodiles after what are believed to be human remains were found near a creek infested with the risky reptiles.

Authorities said that Cameron has a medical condition for which she needs to take daily medication and that she had only recently moved to the area, meaning she was likely unfamiliar with her surroundings.

"It is my deep regret to inform you that following an extensive search and the discovery of certain items as a result of that search, we have the firm belief that my nan Anne Cameron has passed away in tragic circumstances", she said.

Rangers have captured a monster three-metre crocodile as they continue to hunt down the predator believed to have eaten an elderly woman with dementia.

The woman's son, Craig Eggins, wrote on Facebook his mother took regular short walks and would ask for help if she got lost, according to the Australian Associated Press.

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

The forensic tests should be completed by Friday morning, and police and SES are continuing to search for the missing woman.

Surveillance will be conducted on water and on foot.

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