Human remains have been found in bushland on the NSW mid-north coast, four hours’ drive north of Sydney.
A Rural Fire Service crew made the gruesome discovery about 6am on Thursday on Yarratt Road after they put out a small fire in the Yarratt State Forest near Taree, police said.
The remains are believed to be those of an adult and a crime scene has been established.
A post-mortem will be conducted to identify the body and determine a cause of death, police said.
The body was found in an area 45 mins drive away from where three-year-old William Tyrrell disappeared from his foster grandmother’s home in Kendall in September 2014.
