Investigations are conducted after a bone has been located on a beach in Port Macquarie on the north-north coast of NSW.
On Sunday afternoon, the small bone, believed to be human, was discovered by passersby near Flynn's Beach.
He was seized by the police and will be subjected to forensic examination, with results comparable with those of the missing persons.
The bones belonging to one or more human beings were discovered in the beaches of Port Macquarie last month.
A spear fisherman contacted the police on Saturday 15 June after finding a bone in the water at Flynn's Beach. No other element was found during a search the next day.
Other bones were found by another spear fisherman in nearby Flat Rock, east of Nobby Head, on Monday 17 June.
Anyone with information on this incident is invited to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
