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.

Police have found clothes and other items of interest belonging to Anne Cameron at the end of Four Mile Beach.
