1. Police have uncovered the remains of a woman, believed to be Patricia Gay.
Homicide detectives believe they have found the remains of Patricia Ann Gay, who went missing in central Victoria more than two years ago.
The 55-year-old was last seen by her daughter and family in her pyjamas at her Malmsbury home on a Sunday night in March 2012.
Police said they suspected her disappearance was a case of murder.
Detective Senior Sergeant Shane O’Connell said human remains had been found at a Malmsbury property and they believed it was Ms Gay.
“The human remains were located by a property owner near Back Creek,” he said.
“Following initial examinations, sadly, we believe the remains belong to Patricia Ann Gay.”
He said they were currently searching a property.
“Our investigation into the suspicious disappearance of Patricia has been ongoing and our search today will hopefully uncover evidence and or further human remains,” he said.
Police had earlier issued a $100,000 reward for anyone who provided information that lead to a conviction relating to the possible murder.
