Police widen search for Melissa Caddick's remains

Police have expanded their search for human remains linked to Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick today, with officers combing a third beachside location.

NSW Police are conducting searches at Cunjarong Point, about 30 kilometres north of Mollymook, a police spokesperson said.

Human remains were found washed up at Mollymook on Friday night, days after a badly decomposed foot turned up at on the beach at Tathra.

DNA testing confirmed the foot belonged to Ms Caddick, however the second lot of remains are yet to be identified.

A police spokesperson said it was usual for DNA testing to take a week.

In addition to teams scouring Cunjarong Point, searches continue at Mollymook and Tathra.

Offshore drift modelling found a body which entered the water near Ms Caddick's home in Dover Heights, in Sydney's affluent eastern suburbs, may have drifted to the South Coast over time.

The 49-year-old disappeared on November 12 last year after leaving her home for what her husband believed was a morning run at 5.30am.

She had been under investigation for allegedly running a Ponzi scheme, using millions from investors to make lavish personal purchases.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided her home as part of an ASIC investigation the day before she disappeared.
