Fears are held that an elderly woman missing near Port Douglas may have been taken by a crocodile.
Police have confirmed clothing has been found beside a small creek which runs off the Mowbray River.
The scene is understood to be about 2km from the Ozcare aged care facility where she was last seen on Tuesday.
The Mowbray River is the location of three sizeable crocodiles regularly seen by motorists travelling between Cairns and Port Douglas.
A major search has been underway since yesterday with the clothing items located at the isolated creek today.
