The remains located on a Mollymook beach on Friday (26 February 2021), have undergone preliminary testing and have been determined to be human, as belonging to a man.
While it has been established the remains do not belong to Melissa Caddick or a 39-year-old man missing from the Batemans Bay area since Monday 25 January 2021, further testing including comparative DNA testing will be undertaken to identify the remains.
The DNA profile will be compared against the missing persons database, which contains the hereditary and genetic mapping of long-term missing people in NSW.
Further inquiries will be conducted by South Coast Police District and the Missing Person’s Registry.
