THE dis­cov­ery of hu­man re­mains in a re­mote camp­site on the banks of a north Queens­land river has left po­lice scram­bling to iden­tify the re­mains.

De­tec­tives and foren­sic of­fi­cers were called to the banks of the Bur­dekin River near Dal­beg, south­west of Ayr, on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Ayr CIB De­tec­tive Se­nior Con­sta­ble Nick Bach said the re­mains had been lo­cated by fish­er­men in a tent near Eight Mile Creek, on the Bur­dekin River.

Con­sta­ble Bach said there was no in­di­ca­tion of how long the re­mains had been in the area.
