A hunt for a crocodile suspected of snatching an elderly woman at a creek in northern Australia is under way.

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

They were discovered two days after the 79-year-old went missing – just one mile away from her nursing home at Port Douglas in Queensland.

The dementia sufferer is believed to have wandered into a tropical forest and become disoriented.

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.
