What is believed to be human remains have been found near a crocodile-infested creek in far north Queensland as police search for a missing elderly woman.

Anne Cameron, 79, disappeared from a Port Douglas nursing home on Tuesday, with police unable to rule out the possibility she had been attacked by a crocodile after wandering down to a nearby river.

"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", Anne's granddaughter Isabella Eggins wrote.

"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.

In addition to the missile tests, it has conducted six nuclear tests since 2006, including the most powerful one on September 3. A South Korean lawmaker says North Korean hackers stole highly classified military documents that include U.S.

Clothes and a walking stick bearing the name of Ms Cameron, who suffers from dementia, were found next to a creek.

"There will be forensic tests done on those remains, but I will stress that there are no other missing persons in the Port Douglas area".

A woman, 68, was found walking along a road north of Wyndham in the WA Kimberley region, missing half an arm after a croc attack at Three Mile Creek.

Acting Inspector Lukin said this was not the first time Ms Cameron had become disorientated while out walking and SES volunteers would continue searching the area to keep "every available option" open.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has been contacted and is assisting the LCSO in the search for this child. The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office said Devin Holston has been "recovered" but would not release any other information.

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

Cameron is believed to have removed her clothing before going into the creek, authorities said.

She had only recently moved to the aged care facility after relocating from Canberra and family were involved in the search since her disappearance on Tuesday afternoon. She was last seen in Craiglie, near Port Douglas and is described as slim, 165cm tall with short grey hair.
