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.

The 79-year-old, who has Alzheimer's disease, was last seen before she left her OzCare aged care facility to take a walk on Tuesday afternoon.

Ms Cameron's devastated family conceded they were of the "firm belief" Anne had "passed away in tragic circumstances" as they waited for DNA testing to come back.

Anne Cameron's clothes, walking stick and what appeared to be human remains were found near the creek bank on Thursday.

"We've also located some biological matter which we believe to be human remains, but those items are now being tested in Cairns", he said.

Police have not ruled out finding Cameron alive and are still searching the area.

Mrs Cameron's disappearance sparked a major search, as she was known to suffer from dementia and had wandered away from the facility on at least one other occasion in the past month.

"We continue to search the area in the hope of finding her alive (but) because of the proximity of these items near the creek bank, we can not rule out the possibility of a crocodile attack".

Energy price cap plans to be published
Ian Conn, who runs British Gas owner Centrica, gave a heavy hint that the UK's biggest energy supplier would do something similar. It will consult on the design of the price cap for default deals while the government's draft bill progresses through parliament.


Forensic tests are being carried out in Cairns.

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

State Emergency Service area controller Sean McGuinness said the search is proving to be hard.

Wildlife officers are expected to set traps to catch the crocodile believed to have taken Ms Cameron.

Surveillance will be conducted on water and on foot.

She had only been at the facility for a few weeks.

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.
