Anne Cameron 79 went missing from her Queensland aged care facility on Tuesday afternoon

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.

Acting Inspector Ed Lukin said police and the SES searching near the creek had found clothing, and a walking stick with Mrs Cameron's name on it.

Anne Cameron, 79, went missing from her Queensland aged care facility.

Far North police acting inspector Ed Lukin said "Because of the proximity of these items and this unknown material located by this creek bank we can not rule out a croc attack".

"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.

The remains were found near the Mowbray River where three large crocodiles are regularly spotted by locals, according to the Cairns Post.

One fellow resident of Cameron's care facility told ABC she had seen the missing woman walking towards an administration building around 4pm on Tuesday (10 October).

'We believe she's wandered in there and gotten lost, it's our theory that she's become disorientated and walked through that area'.

Results of the forensic tests are expected later today or tomorrow morning.

Anne Cameron went missing on Tuesday.

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

A Department of Environment and Heritage Protection spokesman says traps will be set in an attempt to catch the crocodile as police and wildlife officers continue to look for the woman's body.

Police said the remains found at Port Douglas have been sent for further testing, but there is no indication of foul play.
